Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock said: “The Council is facing some very tough choices over the coming months to balance our books. While the Government is cutting our budget by a third, Lewisham’s population is growing as quickly as anywhere in London, putting extra pressure on our services from adult and children’s social care, to school places, refuse collection and waste disposal. “I want to do everything I can to protect the services that local people value most. The Big Budget Challenge is a way of putting people in the picture about our finances and finding out where local people would continue spending money and where they think money could be saved.” As well as the online challenge, the Council is also inviting people to attend their local assembly meeting during September and October to take part in a discussion about the Council’s budget.
