You may not be aware of the Local Area Forum, or LAF

This is a public consultation body that operates under the auspices of Bucks County Council and, in our case, looks at community support needs for the Haddenham and Long Crendon areas.

The role of LAF is to strengthen local democratic accountability by empowering locally elected councillors to take decisions, shape and influence service delivery and County Council priorities in the local community area.

Membership includes County, District and Parish Councillors and representatives from the Police, Health Authority and other organisations. Local people are encouraged to participate, and time is set aside at each meeting for public questions.

LAF facilitators would like to gather your views on the generic priorities in advance of future meetings, and are inviting local residents to complete an online survey.

The survey can be found here .

If you would like to more information about the LAF, please use either of the following email addresses:

or
lwillis@buckscc.gov.uk.

Queries can also be addressed to Madeleine Howe.
