Last autumn we met with hundreds of organisations from around Bucks to discuss our outline case for change and to get feedback on which unitary model we should explore further. This included town and parish councils, businesses, voluntary groups and public sector organisations. From the formal feedback we’ve received, over 70% favour multiple unitary councils, with support for a single, county-wide unitary council in the minority.
We used this feedback to inform the proposal that we developed in December and submitted to the Secretary of State in January for two new unitary councils for Bucks.
We are currently carrying out another round of engagement with stakeholder organisations and businesses to share, raise awareness and gather further support for our proposal.
