Transport Economy Environment
Rethink our communities...
The future of our county's environment and infrastructure is in your hands.
Buckinghamshire - one of the fastest growing economies in the UK - is facing an exciting period of major growth: £55 million of infrastructure investment, high-profile business developments at Pinewood and Silverstone, major housing growth proposed in Aylesbury and High Wycombe, an unprecedented range of national infrastructure schemes and much more to come.
Our aim within Transport Economy Environment is to manage the major growth pressures within Buckinghamshire in a tough financial climate. Commercial and innovative, we are developing policies that strike the right balance between environment protection and growth.
We are adopting innovative solutions to service delivery and growth through our own Buckinghamshire Development Company, devolving services to parish councils, creating big data partnerships in transport and landscape and introducing new models of delivery in client transport.
We partner with businesses and community sectors in virtually everything we do; playing to the strengths of these sectors to deliver first class services to our customers.
We have a diverse portfolio of business areas under Transport Economy Environment, from Waste and Regeneration to Strategic Business Planning and Operational Highways.
Incorporating all economic growth, statutory plan making, and strategy development linked to transport, economy, environment and infrastructure.
Manage the development and implementation of our major regeneration initiatives, new build schemes and infrastructure programmes, working in partnership with others.
Oversee all of our Operational Highways, Client Transport and Public Transport Services.
Manage all of our Operational and Regulatory Waste and Environment Services.
Provide business insight and professional expertise in financial management, performance, assurance, customer insight, business development and improvement, horizon scanning and the commissioning of services.
We help people achieve their ambitions and place a strong emphasis on developing our internal talent.
We have a Learning and Development Strategy specifically tailored for our teams. We give a real focus to ‘on the job’ training approaches and we ensure that through knowledge sharing, collective problem solving and creating innovative solutions, expertise is cascaded across the business areas.
Across Transport Economy Environment and in close partnership with external organisations, we are driving a number of major infrastructure projects, including HS2 mitigation, East West Rail and Energy from Waste…
At the forefront of our waste management strategy, the Energy from Waste facility built by FCC Environment for Buckinghamshire County Council opened in spring 2016. It thermally treats up to 300,000 tonnes of residual waste per annum, comprising of both household and commercial waste that would otherwise be disposed of in landfill sites. The contract is worth £275 million and will save Buckinghamshire tax payers over £150 million over the 30-year life of the contract.

High Speed 2, the proposed new railway that will run from London to Birmingham, will have a huge impact on Buckinghamshire. We are engaging with HS2 Ltd through the parliamentary process and we have sought to ensure that the very best mitigation is put in place.

East West Rail will establish a strategic railway connecting East Anglia with Central, Southern and Western England. It is our role to ensure that the East West Rail project delivers on expectations for Buckinghamshire residents.

OneTransport – funded by Innovate UK – will see the creation of a transport data hub which companies, app developers and other local authorities can access for a small fee. Transforming how we use transport data, we will have a complete view of traffic flows and information, enabling a regional response to traffic and incident planning.
