As part of our commitment to work together to serve the people of Buckinghamshire, we want to better understand what is currently working well, and not so well, for parish and town councils, 3 years since the launch of Buckinghamshire Council.

We recognise that parish and town councils are independent democratically elected bodies who work within their own financial constraints and represent communities at a truly local level.

We understand that parish and town councils are a key connection between us, as the unitary council and their community, and can help improve services and foster greater community empowerment.

We have adopted a Town and Parish Charter for Buckinghamshire to articulate and demonstrate our commitment to work together to serve the people of Buckinghamshire and have developed an action plan to help embed the charter, and its aims across the council. To help us ensure that its delivery is monitored, and any arising issues addressed, it is important for us to hear from town and parish councils.

Please submit one joint response per parish or town council.
