1. Submitted 2018/2019

Presented by: Tracy James on Wednesday 20 March 2019.

Lead Officer: Ben Smith - Head of Commissioning, Communities.

Petition: We the undersigned hereby declare our opposition to and deep disappointment in the parking restrictions that have been proposed to be implemented on St Marks Road. These are not the restrictions residents have requested, they do not serve to meet the objectives of local residents and will create a chronic parking issue in the area as there will be more residents' cars than spaces available. We request that the scheme be adjusted as follows:

  • Residents permits be required between 11am - 1pm every weekday only, excluding bank holidays
  • No restrictions be made outside of these times
  • that these residents' permits are transferable through Raymond Road, Wellington Road and St Marks Road
  • that residents with off-road parking are not able to apply for residents permits unless the cars within their household exceed the number reasonably accommodated by their off-road parking

We are willing to compromise with agreement to the double yellow lines on the side of the road made up of odd numbered houses as per the existing proposal, despite this removing yet further capacity for which there is no allowance in the proposals.

Should these adjustments be made, the following issues will occur:

  • There will be enough spaces for the residents of St Marks Road without off-road parking to park at any time, in or outside the hours of the permit restrictions
  • Business parkers and commuters travelling to London outside of peak times will still be taking up spaces during the day

For these reasons it is clear that the proposals do not meet objectives and are therefore not fit for purpose.

Presented by: Councillor Eileen Quick at Full Council on Tuesday 11 December 2018.

Lead Officer:  David Scott - Head of Communities Enforcement and Partnerships

Petition: Objection to the proposed off-licence and supermarket at 113-117 Springfield Road, Windsor SL4 3PZ. We object to the proposed off-licence and supermarket as this would cause the following issues:

  1. Crime and Disorder - The proposed opening hours of the off-licence from 6am to 11pm shows lack of awareness of the local area and a lack of responsibility to the community, with the potential increase in crime with the additional availability of alcohol until late.
  2. The prevention of public nuisance - The availability of alcohol to be purchased for longer hours would potentially encourage youngsters to hang around on the benches nearby the area until late and misbehave in an anti-social behaviour.
  3. The protection of children from harm - Increase in traffic due to delivery lorries, parking problems for residents and school would present a danger to the local children and the children attending the local school. 
  4. No requirement - There is no requirement for another shop with an alcohol licence on a parade of just three commercial properties, it would be far more beneficial to provide the diversity of another trade that locals, residents and the next door school can benefit from

Update: The Licensing Panel Sub Committee held on Wednesday 30 January 2019 approved the licence with the condition that deliveries could only take place between 9am and 4pm.

Presented by: Lead Petitioner - Mrs J Smith - Petition received Monday 3 September 2018

Lead Officer:  Barbara Richardson - Managing Director RBWM Property Company

Petition: We, the undersigned petition The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to guarantee that at least 30% of future housing developments on council owned land are affordable. We are mindful of recent decisions to agree planning permission without the 30% affordable housing being included, where developers have used the "viability" clause and we believe that any developer of council owned land needs to be made aware at the outset that the commitment to 30% affordable housing is not negotiable. We further believe that the 30% affordable housing criteria for the proposed Golf Club redevelopment must include enough social housing for all the current Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead housing waiting list.

Update: The petition was dropped after consultation with the lead petitioner, who was reassured that 30% of council owned sites, would be for affordable housing.

On this basis the petitioner saw no need to take this process any further.
