Town and Parish Charter

Our commitment

Buckinghamshire Council will:

  • recognise that parish and town councils are independent democratically elected bodies who work within their own financial constraints and represent communities at a truly local level
  • understand that parish and town councils are a key connection between the unitary council and their community who can help improve services and foster greater community empowerment, especially through devolution and community boards
  • develop an action plan that will embed the charter and its aims across the council and to ensure that its delivery is monitored and any arising issues addressed
