The Council maintains the following Memberships & Affiliations:
Information Commissioners Office [ICO] – under
current Data Protection legislation, the Council is deemed a ‘Data Controller’.
The Act also makes it mandatory for Data Controllers to “contribute” to the
running of the ICO by annual subscription. A certificate is then issued confirming
Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Association of Local
Councils [B&MKALC] – this gives the Council access to regular legal
updates and interpretation of legislation governing how local councils conduct
their business lawfully from the National Association of Local Councils
Buckinghamshire Playing Fields Association [BPFA] –
to contribute to and access support for the availability & maintenance of
public open spaces throughout Buckinghamshire.
North Bucks Parishes
Planning consortium [NBPPC] – to pool experience and amplify local concerns
across all local parishes regarding planning applications/ developer relations.
This includes joint responses to the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP).
No Expressway Alliance [NEA] – Council has joined the
Alliance to collaborate with all those Councils that would be directly affected
by any of the Highways England options proposed for the Arc. We join
Buckinghamshire Council in opposition to the proposals both for the road and to
inject 1 million new dwellings across the Arc, leading to massive over capacity
and environmental destruction in our immediate vicinity. The ramifications of
this as well as the VALP remain a major concern.
