Closed 28 Mar 2024

Opened 14 Feb 2024

We are reviewing the Community Board boundaries to consider if changes need to be made to accommodate new wards in Buckinghamshire.

Following the outcome of the Local Government Boundary Commission, Buckinghamshire's electoral arrangements have been confirmed and will come into effect in May 2025.

Currently there are 147 Buckinghamshire councillors, with three councillors representing each of the 49 wards.

At present we have 16 Community Boards.

As from the May 2025 elections, there will be 97 councillors representing the same number of wards, which will consist of:

  • 10 three-councillor wards
  • 28 two-councillor wards
  • 11 one-councillor wards

Further details on the new wards can be found on the Boundary Commission website.

In addition, MP boundary wards have also changed, and this is another factor influencing current arrangements.

Community Boards Boundary Review

Our review of Community Board boundaries involves assessing the current number of Community Boards and exploring how they fit with the new ward arrangements and, where appropriate, changes to town and parish council wards.

We are also facing financial constraints like many other local authorities. As part of our medium-term financial planning, we are also seeking to review the cost of running the boards.

Savings proposals have been included in our latest medium-term plan; therefore, it is inevitable that the number of boards will need to be reduced and the level of funding available will also be impacted.

At this stage we just consulting on geographical boundaries only. How the boards should operate, are managed, and the level of funding, will be assessed once the review to establish the new structure has concluded.

As part of this review, we are seeking the views of a number of stakeholders and value your contribution as advocates for your local communities.
