Annual Report 2015
2014/15 was another successful year for the Council as it continued to improve services to its residents whilst controlling costs and setting a nil percent increase on the council tax for its 2015/16 budget.
The Council collects data on 69 performance measures that helps to inform how the Council as an organisation is performing. During 2014/15 the Council successfully achieved or improved upon 38 indicators narrowly missing 12 indicators and failed to achieve 19 indicators. Particularly pleasing within this level of performance was the Council improving overall trading in Priory House; improving on numbers of visitors to Priory House; improving on the number of visits to Grove Corner; town centre footfall increasing and increasing trading activity at Creasey Park Community Football Centre. Not only do such improved measures show that the Council is performing more efficiently, they also demonstrate the popularity of our services for the towns residents and businesses.
Other highlights during the year included the completion of nearly £500,000 worth of investment in a new skate park facility for the town and a new car park for Creasey Park Community Football Centre.
The town was also able to celebrate the beginning of work on the A5-M1 Link Road and associated Woodside Connection; the opening of Central Bedfordshire Colleges Incuba Centre; and the completion of the new Prologis Distribution Centre on Boscombe Road.
