Our campaign received widespread coverage in the local press plus the backing of many councillors. With no party in overall control of the council, it could only take a few votes to defeat the rise.
We've heard that a number of councillors are indeed planning to vote against the proposed budget on March 2nd. We can win this fight!
That's why we're heading back to Havering next week to keep the pressure on. We'll be focussing our efforts in key wards and urging more councillors to vote down the rise. Now is the time for them to take a stand on behalf of their residents.
