Budget 2022

Budget 2022 overview

Bank notes

Each winter, Central Bedfordshire Council refreshes its budget proposals and updates its four-year financial plan (called the Medium-Term Financial Plan).

Despite the ongoing pandemic, we are required to set a budget in February, which will include:

  • our spending plans for the year ahead
  • the areas where we plan to reduce costs
  • our plans for Council Tax

The full detail of the plans and budget are spelt out in a report to the Executive Committee of the Council.

It’s quite a long and complicated document, so here are the summarised headlines, with a focus on the plans for 2022/23.
