The role of Local Area Forums is to strengthen local democratic accountability by empowering locally elected councillors to take decisions, shape and influence service delivery and Council priorities in the local community area.
Membership includes County, District and Parish Councillors and representatives from the Police, Health Authority and other organisations. Local people are encouraged to participate, and there will be time set aside at each meeting for public questions.
The next Local Area Forum meeting is being held at Ivinghoe Town Hall, so is a perfect opportunity for local residents to attend and put their questions to BCC.
The agenda can be found here: https://democracy.buckscc.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=624&MId=12321&Ver=4
- Luton Airport Expansion – staff will be on hand to answer your queries
- updates from Thames Valley Police, Transport for Bucks, Bucks County Council and Aylesbury Vale District Council
- A local priorities updates
(Please note that BCC will hold a separate public meeting to discuss proposals for Brownlow Bridge at a future date and therefore this topic will not be covered at this LAF meeting. Due to the very large amount of correspondence the council has received regarding this matter, transport officers are currently considering very carefully the views expressed and all aspects of the issue are being explored.)
