Council Leader Ray Puddifoot Council Leader Ray Puddifoot

Hillingdon taxpayers will discover tonight how their money is going to be spent by the council in the coming year.

Major spending decisions are set to be rubber stamped at the Hillingdon Council Budget meeting.

You can follow live coverage here via Twitter from Rachel Sharp and her team including Jon Girling and Tom Fish. See live feed below.

If you want to join in the discussion use the hashtag #hillingdonbudget.

The meeting 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 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.
