2 Buckinghamshire Council consultations ending soon

Don’t forget to have your say on Community Boards for the new Buckinghamshire Council


On 1 April 2020 there will be a new single council for Buckinghamshire, replacing the current county council and four district councils. This provides a unique opportunity to strengthen local democracy, as well as improve services and outcomes for the people of Buckinghamshire. The new council will be called Buckinghamshire Council.

We want Buckinghamshire Council, and its elected councillors, to have strong connections with the communities in Buckinghamshire. We want people to have a say in how services are designed and delivered in their local areas.

We are therefore proposing setting up community boards in local areas and would like you to share your views on this proposal by completing this short survey.

This consultation will close at 11:45pm on Monday 30 September 2019.

Further information about community boards can be found here on our website.

We are also asking people for their views on changes to the Council Tax Reduction (support) for people on low incomes

Currently across Buckinghamshire each district council has their own scheme (called the Council Tax Reduction Scheme) that sets out how they support people on low incomes by reducing the council tax bill. The current schemes offer various levels of support for people in the same situation living in different parts of the county.

The aim is to have one scheme that offers the same level of support to all council tax payers across the whole of Buckinghamshire from 1 April 2020. One scheme will mean that people in the same situation are treated consistently and fairly wherever they live in Buckinghamshire.

We are asking for people’s views on the proposed changes to the level of reductions to council tax bills for people on low incomes in a new scheme for Buckinghamshire Council.

Information about the proposal, including case studies illustrating the potential impact for different groups of people, plus the consultation survey can be found on the Shadow Authority website.

This survey closes on 24 September.
