The Windsor & Maidenhead Borough Council Local Plan is a legal document featuring council development plans throughout the Borough. It is important to raise objections at the earliest possible opportunity, well before the Local Plan, or amendments to it, are considered by the relevant Committee.
The Local Plan should be available to view, together with forms for objection, at:
Completed objections should be addressed to: Borough Planning Officer, Ashton House, York Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire. SL6 1PS before the due date.
Add your name to a Petition. However, councillors are notorious for ignoring petitions! Their real value is in attracting press coverage.
Many Councillors in Windsor & Maidenhead Borough Council may not be reflecting the views of those who elected them. If they have supported the plan to which you object, and you would expect them to oppose it whole-heartedly, you may care to write or telephone them so that they does not misrepresent you again!
Local newspapers are valuable in promoting your cause to a wider audience which may otherwise not know what is planned. In addition, councillors do not like adverse publicity! Remember that the Press Release to local papers must be right up to date, and ideally contain a good photograph, or photo opportunity. Papers are normally short of space so be as crisp and concise as you can. Let ThamesWeb know of your campaign too. We may well be able to devote space to it. [Contact ThamesWeb]
