Bromley Council Budget: Conservatives Wasting Taxpayers' money on ULEZ legal fees to make a political point

At the meeting of Bromley Council on 27th February, the Council voted in favour of a 4.99% increase in Council Tax for 2023-2024. During the meeting Bromley Liberal Democrats proposed amendments to the Budget to make it fairer, greener and less wasteful of taxpayer money.
