A County Deal for Buckinghamshire

Central Government’s Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill introduced new devolution opportunities for local areas.

We are seeking a County Deal for Buckinghamshire to:

  • seize opportunities to accelerate recovery
  • provide investment for vital projects
  • improve the delivery of important services

Our proposal seeks a devolved skills budget for Buckinghamshire, along with local delivery of national employment programmes to directly cater for communities and encourage growth across the county.

Recovery and growth proposal

The Buckinghamshire Growth Board has readied a recovery and growth proposal for central government.

This demonstrates how the cooperative effort of the Buckinghamshire Growth Board is beneficial to the county and we can build on this and achieve much more together.
