1. Foreword

It’s 12 months on from our first Annual Report - 12 months of living under the shadow of a global pandemic and the challenges it brought and continues to bring, I continue to be extremely proud of the resilience of our residents, partners, and staff, who continue to rise to the challenge of delivering services and supporting residents in unprecedented times. This annual report reflects the achievements of Buckinghamshire Council against our Corporate Plan, which outlines our ambitions and priorities.

We are committed to making Buckinghamshire the best place to live, raise a family, work, and do business. We want our county to be a place everyone can be proud of, with excellent services, thriving businesses and outstanding public spaces for everyone. We want our residents, regardless of background, to have access to great opportunities, living healthy, successful lives and ageing well with independence.

As a council, all Members have played a key role in the delivery of our achievements for our residents, communities and businesses over the last year.

We can look back and be proud of what we have achieved; the challenges of the pandemic will certainly remain with us over the coming months and beyond, but we have a unique opportunity to build on our successes. Buckinghamshire’s Strategic Vision for 2050 will help deliver many of these ambitions which will not only benefit our residents but also the wider economy.

I am pleased to be able to reflect in this report how we have continued to develop and grow as a new council and on the many achievements we have collectively made.

Martin Tett
Leader, Buckinghamshire Council
