Awful, rude staff, sent me other people’s personal documents, refuse any backdating of claims and try their best to take all your money. No decent investment into anything and I’ve had to take them to court before ( won my case ) no apologies from them for the upset they caused.

Probably the worst council area I have ever had the misfortune to live in. Poor services offered to residents with no accountability for wrong decisions or lack of actions. Very woke and appear to only care about generating revenue by …

Very disappointed that the council are failing to address the issue of their visitors and staff turning right onto Caudwell Street when they leaving their offices. The sign for a ‘no right turn’ is there for a reason. If people continue & …

No one listens here. This council requires serious reforms. Right now there sole purpose of existence is to generate cash. This council reminds me of my time in Middle East. No matter how many complaints you make….nothing is going to happen.

The council tax department has unhelpful staff and an awful manager who makes it feel like it is an imposition for her to do her job. the can’t be bothered to help and the seem like they don’t care at all about their jobs.

Worst Council in whole UK. Wrong people in wrong jobs. Do not support locals at all. Over the phone, they are like nigel farage and face to face? Like donald trumph. I had send an email 2 month ago. No reply yet. Why they get paid? and unfortunateley that is our….The taxpayer’s money. Shame!!!

Like every council these days, make cuts to the services in the area but yet council tax goes up. An absolute joke, charging service area charge to people where I live, for what? Badly cut grass, rarely emptied bins, the list goes on and on. Bedford Council need to give more to the people of the area and not focus on taking from them.

Any individual that is unfortunate enough to have dealing with Bedford child services BEWARE. This is an organisation that will make up lies to get what they want. I strongly advise any indivaul who is dealing with these predators to record everything don’t let them tell you your not allowed YOU ARE. RECORD EVERYTHING.

Few years ago I asked advise because my landlady wasn’t giving me my tenancy agreement. She worked for the council so not only I never got a response from the council but they also told her that I was asking about her.

Just moved into the Borough. Called to find out where my nearest recycling centre is. Got through to customer ‘service’ (cough cough). She tells me it’s at the Fordham Arms (which I already knew) and then hangs up on me while I’m trying to …

Have tried called 10 times in the past two weeks to resolve issue with my council tax, everytime and anytime I call…” We are experiencing a high volume of calls”. No answer phone or call back service. Fed up of trying! Poor.

Rang to sort a new waste recycling bin. Person who I was meant to ring was unavailable. So, after a round about route via Jacky/Jackie +Lin/Lynn who were both very helpful. I was put through to Koran? who sorted out my new recycling bin. Thank you very much Bedford Council from Koti and Co.

Customer service is horrible!! I’ve called 5 times this morning. Every time I am being connected someone answers and puts the phone down. Between all the calls I have been on hold for over an hour now.

Neighbours dump their waste in our flat block bins and nothing of any substance is being done about it. this council loves flagship vanity projects far too much, could save some money by letting some parts of parks revert to nature for instance

Bedford highways department are a complete shower of incompetents. A prime example being the ongoing assault course at the junction of Clapham Road & Manton Lane, Bedford. Senior leadership should be dismissed for gross misconduct.

Chief Executive Philip Simpkins is an absolute tool. I actually witnessed the incident another reviewer wrote about at Lloyds Bank and stumbled across it looking for information on council tax. He was an absolute child in the way that he behaved and should be sacked immediately. WHAT A BULLY

BBC have recently begun to use Churchill services as their cleaning contractors. Churchill fail to pay their staff on time and refuse to pay staff annual leave money. I hope BBC reconsider using this company as their contractor…. Churchill are a disgrace.

Disgraceful outfit but hey accountable to nobody so they can be as incompetent and inept as they want to be as there is no external arbitration or robust complaints process that can bring them to task.

Unfortunately cannot give no stars. They take absolutely no notice of local opinions and concerns and have no regard for areas beyond the old Borough Council boundary.

Absolutely ridiculous organisation. The staff on the telephone can’t tell you anything and tell you to just come into the offices. I don’t drive, live in a village and have a tiny baby. I’m disgusted.
