Public consultation: Draft South West Maidenhead Supplementary Planning Document

Published: 08 July 2022

From Ian Motuel - RBWM Planning Policy Manager

Our vision is to provide a sustainable, high-quality and distinctive place where people will want to live and enjoy living, that is well integrated into the existing community and supported by the right on-site community facilities and infrastructure.

During spring 2022, we held three online events helping to inform production of a site-specific Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). This SPD will provide more detailed guidance to help implement the policies and vision already set in the Borough Local Plan, guiding future planning applications. With the SPD area containing land in multiple ownerships, it will also help ensure development, and the infrastructure needed to support it, happens in a coordinated and comprehensive way.

Having considered the initial public feedback, the Council has produced, for public consultation, a draft SPD document. This consultation is now running for six weeks, until Wednesday, 17 August.

To access the event, view the documents and comment, please use the South West Maidenhead Development Framework SPD Consultation portal: SPD Event

Please note, if you would like to comment on more than one section/paragraph/appendix of the draft SPD, the consultation portal allows for multiple forms to be completed on the same registered consultation account. After submission of the first form, the web page returns to the home page for further representation forms to be completed.

To get involved and find out more, please attend one of the events below, or visit SWMaidenhead-SPD where you can view the draft SPD document and supporting documents and complete the feedback form.

If you don’t have online access, public access computers are also available in the library, where you will also be able to view a hard copy of the SPD and pick up a feedback form.
