The new unitary authority for Buckinghamshire has been launched, bringing together five district and county councils.

Leader of the new Buckinghamshire Council, Martin Tett, said it was ready to meet the challenges of the current coronavirus crisis.

Mr Tett said: ‘Over the course of the last year or so, specialists from all five councils have been working closely together as one team to prepare for the new Buckinghamshire Council. Because of this, we have been able to step into ‘battle rhythm’ and literally hit the ground running.

’I am proud of the hard work and dedication of all our staff and councillors that has got us to this position and even more so by what I see them doing each day throughout this difficult time to support the people of Buckinghamshire.

The new council replaces the current five councils – Aylesbury Vale District Council, Buckinghamshire County Council, Chiltern District Council, South Bucks District Council and Wycombe District Council
