Consultation on the Mayor of London's Budget Proposals
You are invited to have your say on the Draft Budget Proposals from the Mayor of London
The Mayor of London published his draft revenue budget and capital spending plan for 2019-20 for public consultation. This includes his draft budget proposals for the GLA (Mayor and Assembly), the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), the London Fire Commissioner (LFC), Transport for London (TfL), the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) which administers the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC). He also announced that it was his intention to increase his council tax precept by £26.28 to £320.51 per Band D property in the 32 London boroughs – of this increase £24 will be applied for policing and the remaining £2.28 to fund the London Fire Brigade. The precept in the City of London - which has its own police force - would be £78.38.
