Strategy 2014 - Meeting the challenge

This area of the website sets out the London Borough of Bexley's response to the financial challenges it faces in common with every local authority.

Bexley is now in the final year of its three-year financial plan agreed in March 2011 - known as Strategy 2014.

Over the past two years the Council has worked hard to achieve the savings set out in the Strategy. We are currently on course to deliver the target savings of £35m.

Although the focus has been on reducing spending, the Council continues to make a significant investment in services for both young and older residents.
