Each year we will look at what matters to our local area the most, using data and local intelligence to help us determine the priorities our board will focus on. Some of this information can be found in the Buckingham & Villages Public Health Profile (PDF document). We will involve residents, partners, local groups and organisations in understanding what the local issues and priorities are.
Priorities for 2020/21 are:
- Covid Support and Economic Recovery
- Green Space and Communities
- Road Safety and Cycle ways
These priorities will help us determine where we take action and allocate funding to improve the local area.
Apply for funding
If you have a project that relates to one of the priorities above, you can apply for funding online.
We take actions on issues linked to our priorities. To do this, we have working groups that bring together board members and representatives from the community and relevant partner organisations.
Working groups identify and discuss issues linked to our priorities. We consider project ideas and requests for funding linked to:
- COVID-19 support and economic recovery
- green space and communities
- road safety and cycleways
- youth engagement
- High Speed 2 (HS2) or East-West Rail (EWR)
If you're interested in getting involved with one of the working groups, or would like to discuss an idea you may have for a project, contact us at [email protected].
If you join your community board, you'll be able to have your say on issues that affect your area. How involved you become is up to you. We'll:
- invite you to our board meetings and events
- give you the opportunity to get involved with our working groups
- let you know about local consultations
- share information on funding for communities
