EPC has been asked to help to identify priorities for the new Buckinghamshire Council (BC) that formed in April 2020.


BC wants to hear from communities about priorities and EPC believes that our residents should have direct input. BC has established 16 Community Boards and Edlesborough Parish is in the Wing and Ivinghoe Community Board (WICB) More information can be found on the Wing & Ivinghoe Community Board page on the Buckinghamshire Council website.

This new board has a budget of approx. £130,000 to allocate to projects. Some of these initiatives are outside the normal remit of parish councils. Participants will work directly with other BC residents together with officers of BC.

Something that you regard as a priority may not make the list for our Community Board but may be top in another board area.

Buckinghamshire Council wants to invite residents to take part in developing solutions so please complete the survey below so that your priorities and details can be forwarded to the WICB.
