This measure is delivered from the Council's regular survey of Central Bedfordshire residents, last run in 2016.
58% of residents agreed that Central Bedfordshire Council provides value for money when asked as part of the 2016 Residents Survey. Whilst this is a decline of 4% from the 2014 result, the Council compares positively to the national average position of 52%. The same survey included a question about perceptions of the Council being efficient and well run. Positive responses to this question increased by 9% between 2014 and 2016 with 56% of residents agreeing that this is the case.
