On 1 April 2020 there will be a new single council for Buckinghamshire, replacing the current county council and four district councils. Bucks “Shadow Authority” is running a consultation on new Community Boards it wants to set up. It states that becoming a Unitary Authority “provides a unique opportunity to strengthen local democracy, as well as improve services and outcomes for the people of Buckinghamshire. The new council will be called Buckinghamshire Council.”

It also states it wants “to have strong connections with the communities in Buckinghamshire. We want people to have a say in how services are designed and delivered in their local areas. We are therefore proposing setting up community boards in local areas and would like you to share your views on this proposal by completing this short survey.”

This consultation will close at 11:45pm on Monday 30 September 2019.

We urgently need your help.

Your donations are needed now, to help us run the campaign and pay for political consultants and other professional experts to bring this campaign to the attention of Westminster as well as local politicians.

No Expressway Group believes there is no need for an Oxford-Cambridge Expressway, nor the over-inflated housing targets associated with it, and we will actively campaign against it and support other organisations with the same objectives. 

Our environment is a national asset which is critical for everyone’s health and well-being. We must not let it be destroyed.

Your donations help us to spread information about the Expressway, run and build support for the campaign:

  • £10 could pay for one roadside Correx poster

  • £15 could pay for one roadside poster on a wooden stake

  • £20 could pay for one A1 printed colour poster for our pagoda display

  • £35 could pay for 250 A5 printed leaflets for the campaign

  • £70 could pay for one pole and two panels for our travelling pagoda display

  • £150 could pay for one feather flag for our travelling pagoda

  • £180 could pay to run this website for one year

  • £300 could pay for a 3 minutes of an Expressway Story

  • £500 could pay for a 5 minutes of an Expressway Story

  • A greater or other amount could contribute to the cost of professional support for our campaign in general and in preparation for Planning Inspectorate hearings

Please note:

The No Expressway Group has a group bank account to which the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are signatories. The group will publish accounts on each year which will be audited by an accountant from outside the NEG group.

If any funds are left at the end of the campaign, these will be donated equally between RSPB and BBOWT.
