Parish councils

Parish and town councils

In addition to Buckinghamshire Council, the Wycombe area has parish and town councils, which are the most local level of government. Parish and town councils are independent, with little political orientation, and have powers to undertake a wide range of functions in their local communities. They also provide a voice for local residents, enabling communities to comment on local issues.
