Buckingham Town Council is predominantly funded by a precept that is collected from the town’s council taxpayers, via the District 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.

Budgets
