Central Bedfordshire Budget Consultation – Live!

Central Bedfordshire Budget Consultation – Live!

Wednesday, 04 January 2017

In the next financial year (from April 2017 to March 2018) Central Bedfordshire Council is planning to spend around £189million on public services across our area.

To provide the services we need and to keep council tax increases as low as possible, the council has a plan to:

• continue to find ways to reduce spending through a range of saving measures
• apply the Adult Social Care precept of an increase in Council Tax of up to 3% to contribute towards funding for care services
• increase Council Tax by 1.75% to contribute towards funding of other services

Taken together these measures would allow the council to cover the gap in funding it faces.

We would like to hear from you by 30 January 2017 so that we can report back on the consultation to the council’s Executive Committee.
