A huge overspend of £8.6 million is forecast for Buckinghamshire Council, according to a bleak update on its financial future, according to Bucks Free Press. A major rethink on how £24.335 million will be spent in the county has been approved with funds for projects such as the Aylesbury Link Road, High street investments, and cycling infrastructure being called into question.

Buckinghamshire Council will remove £24.335 million from its current budget and instead channel the money into “future years”. As part of the move, a total of £11.815m earmarked for the South East Aylesbury Link Road will now be diverted into future budgets, the largest single pot of cash being taken out of the 2023/24 budget.
