New Bucks Council Consultation

From April 2020, the new Buckinghamshire Council will be responsible for providing all current county and district council services for all 546,000 residents of Buckinghamshire. This includes waste and recycling collections, roads and transport, education and learning, health and social care, planning where new housing goes or making use of our many parks, libraries and leisure centres.


We’re writing to ask for your support in sharing our ‘Your council, your services, your views’ survey with local groups, who may not be aware this consultation is taking place. We’re looking for a variety of views across Buckinghamshire, so if you run a group or work with people who may not usually hear about this type of survey, we’d be grateful if you could share with them. We are also interested in hearing from local organisations and community groups across Buckinghamshire.


There are a number of ways you can help:

-       By promoting the survey to your group and organisation, encouraging others to take part

-       Displaying our poster (see attached) and sharing this in any of your communications

-       Taking part in the survey as a local Buckinghamshire resident

-       Responding to the survey as a local Buckinghamshire organisation


It is really important that all residents across Buckinghamshire are able to have their say on what they think is important for the future of the new council and our county.


You can complete the short online survey until 25 November, which will take less than 10 minutes. You can also drop into one of the main council offices or our main libraries to take part – these are Amersham, Aylesbury, Beaconsfield, Buckingham, Chesham, Hazlemere, High Wycombe, Marlow and Princes Risborough.


If you have any queries, please feel free to contact us unitarycomms@buckscc.gov.uk and we’ll be happy to help


Kind regards
