There are three annual Town Council meetings; the Annual Town Meeting, the Annual Statutory Meeting and the Precept.
Annual Town Meeting
This year's Annual Town Meeting will be held on Thursday 24th March 2022 at 7pm in the Buckingham Community Centre.
Buckingham Town Council has already declared a Climate Emergency and developed its own Action Plan to drive the organisation toward carbon neutrality by 2030 but how can the town’s population, organisations and businesses to work with us in that aim. This year's Annual Town Meeting will be themed on Climate Change and will bring together stakeholders from the community, local Councils, businesses and residents to:
- Update you on what has been achieved so far
- Share ideas on how we can all take action to achieve net zero carbon Buckingham
The meeting is open to EVERYONE and it is hoped the meeting will identify Buckingham’s key themes for the initiation of Community led Climate Action Groups. The public meeting will involve local experts that can set the context, as well as the wider community. There will be a series of information stalls from different organisations within the environmental sector and six tables, each with different discussion topics.
- Energy & Housing
- Food & Land
- Community & Change for the Future
- Other Issues within Buckingham
All members of the public are invited to come along. Town and Unitary Councillors will be in attendance to answer your queries on any other matters relating to Buckingham. However, if you have a burning question or feel passionately about a local issue that doesn’t get the attention it deserves then come along to one of our weekly Committee meetings.
