Population Explosion in Brent

I was recently sent a ward breakdown of the census figures for Brent.  I already knew that our population had gone up by 18% between 2001 and 2011, but it turns out that the biggest increases are in Harlesden and Kensal Green wards.  Both have seen a rise of about 40%.  That has huge implications for all kinds of Council services.  The funding levels we had in 2010 were designed around the 2001 population.  Now the dramatically reduced funding is supposed to pay for a much larger population and all its changing needs.  A tall order.
