PRIORITY 1: GETTING A BETTER 'BANG FOR OUR BUCKS'.

This Council is wasteful and loose with taxpayers' money. Tory Administration has lost millions of pounds in grants since 2013. Conservative Councillors want to preserve their position and this is the only reason we have 147 councillors.

Bucks Council has more councillors than any other council in the country. More than the Scottish & Welsh Parliaments! Even Birmingham which has a population twice the size of Bucks Council has only 101 councillors.

Council waste 2

Our pledge to cut waste:

What will we do differently? The Liberal Democrats are committed to stopping the waste and the complacency. We will work to reduce the number of councillors to less than 100 making the size of Council more comparable with other large councils.

This change will mean we can save £600K per annum or £2.4 million over the term of the council. Savings which can be ploughed into improving priority council services.
