Budget 2015 Consultation

A range of proposals to produce a balanced budget in the face of vast, ongoing reductions in government funding have been published by Bedford Borough Council.

Achieving the savings required is vital as the Council is legally required to put together a balanced budget. Bedford Borough Council has prioritised front-line services while achieving £62 million of required savings over the last five years, and protecting local residents from the impact of declining resources is again our priority.  

The latest proposals are part of the Council’s drive to achieve the £17 million of savings required by 2017.

Please note this consultation is now closed
