    Fed up with potholes – we are too!
    Government funding cuts and pressures from other services such as social care means there isn’t enough money to pay for all the work which needs doing on our roads.
    However, a new single council for Buckinghamshire would save at least £18m per year – money which the new council could decide to put into more road resurfacing.
    The Government wants to hear your views on the plans. Visit to have your say – it only takes a minute!
