Budget 2016 Consultation

Since 2010 Bedford Borough Council has had to reduce the yearly spend on local services by £81 million. We have made significant savings in staffing costs and in how we buy things – nearly £30 million in total.

We consulted on a range of proposals to help make further savings.

Please note this consultation has now closed

Officers at the Council have considered all of the comments made. A report was taken to the Council’s Executive at its meeting on Wednesday 20 January 2016.
