Wider area growth study
As a result of Duty to Co-operate work and a successful bid to the MHCLG Joint Working Fund, the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead (RBWM), in conjunction with Slough Borough Council (SBC), South Bucks District Council (SBDC) and Chiltern District Council (CDC), is commissioning a joint study to address issues arising from growth that is anticipated across the area, and potentially, more widely.
The Wider Area Growth Study will be comprised of 2 parts. The first part relates to an exploration of the functional geographies applying across the area.
Part 1 of the study defined an area of search for future housing needs for Slough and RBWM.
Part 2 – Spatial options for accommodating future development needs of the Slough/Maidenhead and Windsor urban area.The Part 2 work will identify potential strategic spatial options for accommodating future growth arising from this area, test these options and make recommendations for consideration in relevant Local Plans and for use in Duty to Co-operate discussions. The work commenced in May 2020 and is expected to be completed in late 2020. View a copy of the project timetable and proposal for the work below.
