The Leader AGREED to:


Suspend parking charges across Buckinghamshire Council owned/managed car parks located in town and village centres for a period of one month commencing 12 April 2021 to support High Street recovery.



In a major emergency, the Leader may take any immediate urgent decision required without consultation.
