The following statement has been made on behalf of all District Councils regarding the future of local government in Buckinghamshire.

The Secretary of State, Sajid Javid, has announced in parliament that he is "minded" to implement Buckinghamshire County Council's proposal to replace the existing five councils in Bucks with a single county-wide unitary.

Two Councils instead of five - the best solution for the people of Bucks

 There is currently a debate in Buckinghamshire about the future of local government. 
There is no dispute about the need for change; but we believe real change requires new thinking.
A fresh approach, responding to the economies of the place and to the people who live and work here.

each council focused on
one economic geography

Even More Local

two councils provide greater local accountability
