Lead Officer:  Jenifer Jackson - Head of Planning.

Petition: I am a long resident of Windsor and very much concerned about the proposed planning application Ref: 17/00493/CLASSM Change of use of the ground floor and ancillary outbuilding of the Duke of York public house from A4 (public house) to A1 (Retail). this is a second attempt by the developers having failed the first attempt, to propose change of use of the ground floor and ancillary outbuilding of the Duke of York public House. The local residents have signed the petition and strongly objected to this development, and we all strongly stress that this proposal is to be refused by the planning department.

We, the local residents and local businesses of Windsor have officially drawn a petition to object to the proposal of the above. A copy of the petition has already been sent to the planning department and also to the local MP Mr Adam Afriyie and local Councillor Mr Phillip Bicknell

Lead Officer:  Ben Smith, Head of Highways.

Petition: As residents of the Ockwells Park Estate, we would like it to be considered for a bus to pass through the estate for the following reasons:

  • Residents currently have up to a 20 minute walk to and from the nearest bus stop which, for the elderly and those with health of mobility problems, cannot always manage, especially with the state of the pavement between the bus stop and the estate.
  • other Maidenhead residents would have better access to the facilities at Ockwells Park itself.
  • Better access to Cox Green and Desborough schools resulting in less car usage on the already overloaded local roads.
  • better access for non-drivers to local facilities such as doctors and the community centres in Cox Green and Woodlands Park.

Presented by: the residents of Losfield Road and Tudor Way, Dedworth, Windsor - Monday 1 August 2016 (by post)

Petition: This is a petition in response to the Parking Review and consultation 2001261, feedback 664 (200213) from the Highways Department of Local Authority Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.

The following residents wish to petition for increased parking provision down the two roads named above, specifically by converting the large grassed verged areas into car parking bays.

The consultation named above mentions the Council adding verge restrictions to prevent vehicles from parking on the verges. However, this fails to demonstrate any resolution for the parking crisis down both these roads for residents. It is very difficult for residents to park their own vehicles nearby. The Local Authority was informed via planning objections from local residents (circa eight to nine years ago), that there was a demand for parking that was causing residents difficulties, which has since deteriorated.

The consultation also fails to acknowledge or support the parking problems that residents are currently facing. Residents are using vehicles for work and mobility issues and therefore, these are a requirement of daily life, not a luxury.

The undersigned petition RBWM to provide clear parking bays by reducing the excessive verges, thereby reducing ongoing costs of maintenance of these verges. As this has been undertaken already at St Georges Crescent and Stuarts Way, we believe the council is already aware that this is a successful solution to the parking crisis. Furthermore, as all the properties down these roads have large gardens, it is clear that a reduction of green space is nominal and that no trees have to be removed in order to accommodate this.

Presented By: the residents of Losfield Road and Tudor Way, Dedworth, Windsor.

Decision:  The Council was unable to meet the request of the petitioners due to Planning and Highways issues. Residents were informed of this in writing.
