Town Councillors have a huge impact on how local money is spent. Buckingham Town Council has an annual budget of £1M to look after parks, play areas, cemeteries, events, planning and the economic development of Buckingham.
Do you want to make changes in the town?
Elections for new town councillors take place on the 5th May. This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with your local community and it’s future.
How can I find out more?
Buckingham Town Council will be hosting an evening information session for prospective new town councillors at 7pm on the 9th March at Buckingham Library. The drop-in session will be an informal opportunity for anyone who is considering standing as a town councillor to find out more about the role and to chat to council staff.
What do I do next?
The Notice of Election will be published on 31 March 2020. The period for nominations will then commence, and the deadline for nominations for the election will be 4pm on 8 April 2020. The nomination papers must be collected from the Town Clerk in Buckingham.
