Budget 2014 Consultation

Have your Say

A range of proposals to produce a balanced budget in the face of continued cuts in funding have been unveiled by Bedford Borough Council.

 

Achieving these savings is vital as the Council is legally required to put together a balanced budget and is again striving to protect council taxpayers from the unprecedented and continuing cuts in government funding by protecting frontline services.

 

The latest proposals identify £17.083 million in savings by 2017 and are part of the Council’s drive to identify more than £37.2 million of savings between 2014/2019. £8.529 million of further savings have already been identified for this period on top of the proposed £17.083 million.
