Local working and funding priorities
1. Locality working
Locality working gives local communities more opportunities to influence services in their local area. We listen to local priorities and work with communities and county, district and parish councillors to form Local Area Plans, which set out how priorities are being addressed in each area. Locality working helps residents and organisations to come together to make a difference in their community.
Each Local Area in Buckinghamshire has a Localities and Communities Manager based in the county council who helps to ensure the different organisations in each local area work well together and address local priorities. You can contact your Localities and Communities Manager from your local area page.
Local area meetings
Each local area has a Local Area Forum (LAF), sometimes known as Local Community Partnerships (LCPs) which includes representatives from the county, district and parish councils, as well as partner organisations like the police and community associations.
Residents are encouraged to attend meetings to hear about what is happening in their local area and have their say. LAFs meet up to 4 times a year and cover topics like parking, health, policing, transport and young people. You can track activities agreed at the meetings.
The LAF can influence decisions about how money is spent locally, how services are delivered locally, and has some funding available to spend on meeting local priorities.
