Budget 2021

Budget 2021 overview

Budget 2021 banner

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

Although the national pandemic means that this year our plans are less certain than usual, we are still required to set a budget in February, which will include:

  •  our spending plans for the year ahead
  •  the areas where we plan to make efficiency savings
  •  our planned Council Tax increases

The full detail of the plans and budget are spelled out in a report to the Executive Committee of the Council, which you can find on our website.

It’s quite a long and complicated document, so here are the summarised headlines, with a focus on the plans for 2021/22.
