Buckinghamshire Council Survey
From April 2020, the new Buckinghamshire Council will be responsible for providing all current county and district council services for the 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.
 
As the launch of the new Buckinghamshire Council approaches, the five Buckinghamshire councils are asking for your views on the proposed priorities and 2020/21 budget for the new council. To have your say on the services and future of the new council, complete the following survey: ’Your council, your services, your views’.
 
The consultation closes on 25 November 2019.For more information on the new council for Buckinghamshire, visit the Shadow Authority’s website.

Streetlights
As the nights draw in, we rely on our streetlights more than ever. The Parish Council has been numbering the streetlights to make it easier to report and fix any faults.  If you spot any lights that are out or damaged, please let us know (by providing the streetlight number, where possible), so we can arrange for them to be fixed.
