A council committee has approved its medium term budget plan.

This week Central Beds Council’s executive committee approved the plan, which includes £17.4m worth of cuts in the next financial year.

This is a 8.6 per cent reduction in the council’s overall budget from the present financial year. The plan also included the decision not to raise the council tax.

It will now go to full council later this month.
