On Monday 12 March it was announced by the government that the five councils in Buckinghamshire (including Aylesbury Vale District Council) may become a single unitary authority. Further details regarding the Minister’s ‘minded to’ decision are available on our website (https://www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/modernising-local-government).
Any changes made to the structure of local authorities in the county may affect council employees in the future but we do not anticipate any immediate impact. Changes are likely to take a period of time and will not affect all areas of the Council.
