Dear Alex Roberts

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 17 March 2021
concerning school cluster groups in the authority.

 

I am writing to ask you to clarify your request. I need further details
from you in order to identify and locate the information. Therefore, I
should be grateful if you would  confirm the level of information you wish
to seek - Liaison groups, formal arrangements etc

 

Once you have clarified your request, I will be able to progress your
request.  If we do not hear from you within one month then I shall take it
that you do not wish to pursue this request and will consider the request
closed.

On 1 April 2020, the new Buckinghamshire Council replaced the five former
councils in Buckinghamshire (Aylesbury Vale District Council,
Buckinghamshire County Council, Chiltern District Council, South Bucks
District Council and Wycombe District Council).

All local government services previously provided by the former councils
have now transferred to the new council.

 

If you need assistance with this, please contact me.
