Finance and Budgets

Buckingham Town Council is predominantly funded by a precept that is collected from the town’s council taxpayers, via Buckinghamshire Council. The Town Council receives some minimal income from the town markets and cemetery, as well as some sponsorship activities, such as floral baskets and roundabouts. The Town Council receives no funding from business rates, and no funding from central government direct. The Council does apply for grants for specific projects when appropriate.

Below you will find various documents relating to the Town Council’s finances.

In order for the Town Council to operate during the coming financial year, the Council must set a Budget for the costs it expects to incur.

Each year the Town Council supports a number of local organisations with grants to aid them in providing facilities and services for the people of the town.

A breakdown of grants awarded during previous years are available here: 2020-2021, 2019-2020, 2018-2019 and 2017-2018

For Information on how to apply for a grant, please see our Grants page.
