The following update has been provided by the Environment Agency, following the Community Briefing in November. Having the Environment Agency holding this open session in Buckingham was extremely useful, as it enabled residents to ask them questions directly and to learn more about the future of the River Great Ouse.

Are you looking for somewhere to go for a walk, or want to find your nearest children’s playground? You can use our new online map to find one of these, or one of our town’s many green spaces, such as The Railway Walk or Maids Moreton Avenue. You might also find one of Buckingham’s hidden gems in the process.

Chaired by Councillor Margaret Gateley
|The Town Council’s Environment Committee is authorised by the Full Council to take responsibility for the protection and improvement of the town. We make recommendations to the Full Council regarding any land or property purchases or sales, seeking professional advice where appropriate.

We keep an eye on work required to footpaths, pavements, cycle-ways, roads,
waterways, horticultural and arboriculture works, street furniture (seats, planters and waste bins), play areas, and play equipment.
However, not all of this falls within the Town Council remit, so we liaise closely with our District and County Council partners on the maintenance of those items for which they have specific responsibility.
Much of our ‘estate’ comprises Chandos and Bourton Parks, the Railway Walk and other open spaces. Apart from ensuring that these areas are properly maintained, we work closely with the Conservation Volunteers and various ‘friends’ groups to maintain and improve these valuable resources and protect the indigenous wild life.
