Bedfordshire County Council was the county council of the non-metropolitan county of Bedfordshire in England. It was established on 1 April 1889 and was abolished on 1 April 2009.[1] The county council was based in Bedford.

In 1997 Luton Borough Council became a unitary authority and in 2009 the remaining county council was divided into two unitary authorities: Bedford Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council (formed from Mid Bedfordshire and South Bedfordshire District Councils).
