Adult social care on agenda as decisions on key council services set for this week

Council Leader Ray Puddifoot Council Leader Ray Puddifoot

Decisions about key council services in Hillingdon are set to be made when councillors meet this week.

The meeting on Thursday evening is to agree on the 2017/18 budget and council tax in Hillingdon.

The borough pledged in December to freeze council tax and stop service cuts, amid Government pressure to raise council tax by a further 3% in order to fund adult social care.

Hillingdon Council looks set to buck the national trend, with the Local Government Association warning today that cuts to services such as bin collections, running children's centres and libraries, filling potholes and maintaining parks are likely across England to fill the growing shortages in adult social care.

Children’s services, road repairs and leisure centres will be among the areas discussed at the Hillingdon Council meeting on Thursday. Adult social care is on the agenda.

When approached by Hillingdon is Here today, Hillingdon Council Leader Cllr Ray Puddifoot declined to comment further before the meeting. The council said that Cllr Puddifoot has been receiving a large number of requests for interviews and therefore unable to agree to a majority of the requests – but urged people to follow Thursday’s council meeting.
