Heritage And Environment – Introduction

The Heritage and Environment Committee meets on the 1st Monday of each month to consider:

  • Planning applications made in the preceding month
  • Preservation and heritage issues affecting Windsor and Eton
  • The Neighbourhood Plan
  • Other matters connected with, or ancillary to, the Heritage Agenda

Members of the public are welcome to contact us on any of the above issues. Also, developers have found it useful to contact us before submitting a planning application, to gather comments on their proposals.  We would encourage this.

Borough Local Plan 

You can now follow @RBWM on Twitter – search for #RBWM_BLP for any Borough Local Plan updates.

The borough local plan will set the long-term strategy for managing development and supporting infrastructure in the borough. It will set out where best to accommodate the homes, jobs and infrastructure we need in the most sustainable way. Please see RBWM’s  Local Development Scheme for details of the timeline in which it anticipates to bring this work forward.

Latest position

The Borough Local Plan 2013-2033 Submission Version, together with supporting documents, was made available to residents and statutory consultees as required by Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning, England) Regulations 2012 between Friday 30 June 2017 and 5pm on Wednesday 27 September 2017 (extended from an earlier deadline of 25 August).

All representations received during that period will be submitted to the Secretary of State for consideration by a Planning Inspector as part of an independent “Examination in Public”. To this end, the Council will be submitting the BLP prior to 31 March 2018, indicating the precise date in an updated Local Development Scheme (to be published in early 2018). For anyone wishing to look at these documents again, the Regulation 19 documents are available to view on the RBWM’s dedicated portal and on its website. Further information can also be obtained by contacting the Planning Policy Team on 01628 683800 or email  blp@rbwm.gov.uk.
