Buckinghamshire council invites Olympic plans questions

Buckinghamshire County Council is asking the public to help it prepare for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

It is encouraging people to submit questions to a cross-party scrutiny review of the county's preparations.

Councillors in the review group will look at areas such as transport, emergency planning, and how communities will celebrate the Games.

The group will explore the council's plans, examine progress and make recommendations.

The council said the review, which will take place on 5 and 6 September, was an opportunity to ensure it was preparing effectively.

Olympic rowing, sprint-canoeing and adaptive rowing events will take place at Dorney Lake in Buckinghamshire during the Olympics.

Councillor Niknam Hussain, chairman of the Olympic 2012 Games Scrutiny Committee, said: "This review is a chance for us to check that the county council's plans are on track.

"We want to invite members of the public to contribute their questions so we can make sure the review directly reflects the interests and concerns of Buckinghamshire residents."

Questions must be submitted by 25 August.
