Lambeth council has made over £200m worth of savings since 2010 due to austerity measures imposed by central government. Staff numbers have already been dramatically reduced , 14 council office buildings have been cut down to just two, and many service have gone digital . But the budget cuts from central government keep coming… The council has to make another £43m of savings over the next 4 years – at the same time as providing the vital services that residents expect and to look after the most vulnerable people in Lambeth.
The council wants to hear from residents before it sets its budget in February. Please take part in the budget consultation ( deadline Monday January 14th ) https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SJTPS23?medium=email&source=GovDelivery%3E

Cllr Jackie Meldrum watering a tree
Hundreds of young trees were planted in our streets, estates & parks in the last couple of years. These trees need our help if they are to survive the 2018 drought.
If you live near a new tree please help water it when you can. The best time to water is early morning or late evening into the plastic watering tube at the base.
The council’s new-tree contractor has doubled the usual amount of water – to the equivalent of 3 watering cans a week. The trees need more in this hot dry summer!
