Bromley is the second-least funded borough by City Hall, a report has revealed.

Just £43 million has been spent in the borough since Sadiq Khan was elected in 2016, compared with £2.1 billion in Newham. Sutton was bottom with just £16 million. 

Bexley, also a suburban Tory area, received less than £100 million, leading critics to accuse the Mayor of political favouritism.

Gareth Bacon, Conservative AM for Bexley and Bromley, said: “Sadiq Khan has failed time and time again to be a Mayor for every part of Greater London.

"Whether it’s through failing to invest in Outer London’s inferior transport network or encouraging development on back gardens, Sadiq Khan has consistently neglected the needs of London’s suburbs.

“With only 0.3 and 0.4 percent of the Mayor’s multi-billion-pound budget being spent on Bromley and Bexley respectively, these new figures will come as a slap in the face to my constituents.

“Make no mistake, these numbers are unacceptable: while Newham is given £2.1 billion by Khan, Bexley and Bromley receive just £102 million between them.

“Outer London desperately needs a Mayor who understands what it means to live in our city’s suburbs and is willing to address these shocking funding discrepancies”.

The report, the first by the London Assembly’s independent research unit, investigated the areas Mr Khan had prioritised since his election.

Second after Newham was the City of London, which received £1.3 billion.

Tower Hamlets received £865 million, Southwark and Wandsworth each more than £700 million, while other boroughs such as Lambeth and Westminster received £600 million.

The report looks only at capital spending, investment into long-term assets, not revenue spending, which supports day-to-day services.

The Mayor is rolling out capital intensive regeneration projects in many boroughs, such as the East Bank project in Newham, and the data is skewed by only examining this particular aspect of spending.

A spokesperson for the Mayor of London said: "This is a misleading report based on an analysis of partial data by the London Assembly.

"It's simply not legitimate to draw these conclusions about the work of City Hall, without looking at them in their proper context.

"Sadiq vowed to be a Mayor for all Londoners and is delivering for people right across the city - making transport more affordable, tackling violent crime, building more council houses and cleaning up our filthy air."

The Mayor's office also pointed out that some of the strategies cover long time periods, up to 25 years, and are not expected to be delivered within one term.
