Working with town and parish councils is an important part of developing the new Buckinghamshire Council.
The new Buckinghamshire Council will need to be able to respond to the different needs and issues in their local communities, working closely with towns and parishes to do this.
In delivering the new Buckinghamshire Council, the Shadow Authority is committed to working with town and parish councils to co-design a new council that supports local communities.

Thank you to everyone who shared their views as part of our Community Boards consultation. This consultation has now closed.

It is anticipated that a decision on community boards will be made by the Shadow Executive at this meeting.
Full details of Shadow Executive meetings, including dates, agendas, webcasts and records of public meetings can be found here.

Keeping it local: design workshop
Town and parish councils were invited to a workshop in June to help design how your council would like to work with the new Buckinghamshire Council from 1 April 2020.
A report providing a summary of the key messages arising from these initial engagement events is now available to download here.
During the workshop, we gave an update on the work towards the new Buckinghamshire Council so far and explored options on what a localised approach could look like to ensure that we meet the needs of the diverse communities in Buckinghamshire. The events were informed by the feedback provided at previous events.
