The Borough Local Plan Working Group has been reviewing the draft of the next ‘preferred options’ consultation. The minutes of the meeting on 19 November, where WLR was discussed, have now been published.

These recommend the borough’s support for the objectives WLR, provided that the normal provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework are followed.  That is, there should be no substantial harm to heritage assets, flood protection, traffic flows etc.

Also, of interest, is that — finally — Windsor is recommended for recognition as more than just a curiosity for tourists, a functioning market town that is also important to residents from Windsor and the surrounding area.  The minutes also recommend the neighbourhood plan to bring forward more detailed proposals, something they have already started with their ‘vision day’ last week.
