Hard work secures a historic London-wide agreement on business rates – and an extra £2.8m for Bexley.

An agreement has been reached with all of the Councils in the capital and the Mayor of London to pool business rates from 2018/19 onwards.

Following a year which has seen the Conservatives increase investment across Council services, including a record £4m for improving roads and pavements, this extra money will help ensure Bexley’s services continue to be delivered to a high standard, helping keep the Borough clean and green.

Commenting, Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, said:

“This has been hard work but we have by bringing everyone of all political colours together, we have secured a historic deal which moves local government finances forward in a positive way.”
