How our charges are set 

  • Our charges are set annually by Bedford Borough Council as part of the setting of fees and charges across all borough services.
  • The Borough Council fees and charges change on the 1st January each year.
  • Our charges are intended to offer value for money, while taking into account staff time and expertise and overheads. 
  • Many of the documents in our care are fragile or of non-standard format and require considerable care during copying. Our charges are weighted with this in mind. 
  • The income raised is important to us and does make a real contribution to funding the service. 
  • Our charges include VAT.
