Buckinghamshire is a very attractive and diverse County which lies within easy reach of central London and the South East bordering Oxford in the West and the outskirts of London in the East. The County is proud to have some really outstanding areas of natural beauty, including the Chilterns, the Vale of Aylesbury and stretches of the River Thames, as well as the growing towns of Aylesbury and Wycombe. What helps to define Buckinghamshire and what makes it special are venues such as The Olympic Rowing Venue at Dorney, Pinewood Studios, the Prime Ministers Chequers retreat and Stoke Mandeville Stadium - the birth place of the Paralympics. These nationally important locations as well as twice the national average of Voluntary and Community and Sector organisations and a combination of rural and urban challenges, brings with it complexity and the need for policies and infrastructure which can react, flex and proactively drive a wide-ranging agenda for our many different community needs.
Buckinghamshire County Council is a high performing organisation providing vital public services to the people of Buckinghamshire. As an upper tier County Council services delivered include education, children’s social care, adult social care, public health, community services, libraries, trading standards, transportation, economic development, strategic planning and environmental services.
