Transport Sub Group

The aim of the Buckingham Society Transport Group is to maintain and improve all aspects of travel (foot, cycle, motor and public transport) in and serving Buckingham. The transport group undertakes to suggest and monitor funding from local and national sources (such as S106, New Homes Bonus, Local Growth Fund) for projects that improve, protect or maintain the internal and external transport structures.  This is attained through regular meetings of the Transport group and through contacts with local councillors and supporting staff.      If you would like to help email
