Hillingdon residents could soon get away with paying less for amenities in the borough than out-oftowners, thanks to a new privelege card.
The card will be issued early next year to every Hillingdon resident over the age of 18 who is on the electoral register.
It will offer discounts for parking, waste disposal centres, leisure facilities and in participating shops.
The card is called Hillingdon First, and residents have been assured they will not be paying for it out of their council tax, as non-residents will be charged more for using the borough's facilities.
Councillor Ray Puddifoot, leader of the council, said: "The Hillingdon First residents' card will do exactly what it says - put our residents first.
"We want to make sure those living in Hillingdon pay less for facilities and services provided by the council than those from outside the borough, who do not pay council tax in Hillingdon."
The council also said that it had gained extremely positive feedback from residents, some of whom have been involved with the naming and design of the card.
Albert Webb, 76, from Hillingdon, said: "I think this is good news for local residents.
"I would take advantage if there is a saving to be made.
"I think the new initiative will enable people to participate in activities that they might not have been able to afford before - besides, it's not going to burn a hole in anyone's pockets, is it?"
John, 25, a scaffolder from Buckinghamshire, however, was against the idea as a non-resident.
He said: "It's not fair for Hillindon residents to be given priveleges at our expense.
"The council tax argument is not justified because houses here are more expensive and bigger, and there are better jobs, so they don't need the savings. It's favouritism."
