Datchet Parish Council owns and maintains much of the "open space" in the Village, such as the Recreation Ground, Village Greens, Cemetry, and the Riverbank near the Boatyard.
Byelaws are now in place for our grounds, parks, public walks and open spaces. The document has been ratified by
the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and it is now a legal document covering: -
The Cut (Horton Road), The Recreation Ground (Green Lane), The Willowfields and The Land at Mill Place (off the Recreation Ground), The Sabatini Land (Horton Road), The Riverfront (Windsor Road) and The Village Greens.
The byelaws protect the grounds, the wildlife and the public and prevent unauthorised use and activities.
For full details please see the Byelaws section under the heading of The Council on the top bar.
Paper copies are kept at the council office 1 Allen Way, Datchet, Berkshire, SL3 9HR and can be inspected without payment on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays between 9.30am and 1.00pm
We also own and lease properties which are either used or let out to third parties for the benefit of the Village. These properties include The Bridge at 24 The Green, the Village Hall, the Library and Police Point at Montagu House, the Youth Club, Cemetry Lodge and Cemetry Chapel.
We maintain and manage the grounds and property assets, and develop new facilities, which in recent years have included the new Library, floodlighting of the ball-court, renovation of the tennis courts and children's play area, the chair store and toilets at the Village Hall, refurbishment of 24 The Green and repair of the London Road milestone.
