Town and Parish Charter


The Town and Parish Charter was founded on our respect for all councils in Buckinghamshire as independent, democratically accountable bodies and has one simple aim:

  • to articulate and demonstrate our commitment to work together to serve the people of Buckinghamshire

We have a common purpose to improve the economic, environmental, health and social wellbeing of Buckinghamshire and its residents, businesses and visitors.

To achieve this, Buckinghamshire Council will work together with town and parish councils to:

  • promote the best interests of the communities we serve
  • provide quality, value for money public services and
  • promote opportunities for greater public participation and involvement in public life
