Grieg Davies started this petition to London Borough Of Bromley

The main purpose of council tax is to provide funding for services that residents within the borough can benefit from. The London Borough of Bromley Council currently uses our council tax revenue for investments outside of the borough. It is not clear how the return from these investments benefit us residents, or provide funding for services for us and our families. The council should have some reserves for a rainy day, but our council tax should not be collected solely for the purpose of financial investment. Especially when services are poor or have been cut to the point of breaking. We have volunteers maintaining our parks. Our public toilets have been closed. Children's services and social services have been cut to the bone. Leisure centres privatised and run by contactors. Clearly the council is not funding these services to meet the demand or the expectations of residents.

The solution is for Bromley to stop investing more of our council tax and start using it on service provision. As a resident I want to see our services well maintained and funded correctly. I want Bromley to stop investing more money, and start spending our council tax on us residents.
