PLANS with a view to improving swathes of a town centre have gone on display for the public to have their say.

The Windsor 2030 forum – the business community-led scheme to formulate a Neighbourhood Plan for the central Windsor area – held a vision day on Tuesday to garner ideas for the plan which will help guide development proposals in the centre of Windsor for the next 10-15 years.

Areas highlighted for improvement include the upper St Leonard’s Road/lower Peascod Street area, Peascod Quarter around William Street, King Edward Court and High Street/Thames Street as well as exploring the Windsor Link Railway idea and improving the riverside part of town.

Around 100 people went to the event and Dermot Whelan, chairman of the Windsor 2030 steering group, said: “The good thing was that a lot of people are now interested – that’s the most important thing. That said, we would like to get more residents’ feedback as this is their plan.

“None of the areas we suggested are set in stone and more can be added – that is the idea of this consultation which is still ongoing.” For more information about Windsor 2030, go to Meanwhile, surveys have been sent out to Windsor households as part of the residents-led Windsor Neighbourhood Plan – an area which covers the remainder of the town outside of the town centre.

The deliveries include the plan’s own vision document which targets Sawyers Close, the Vale Road/Dedworth Road junction and the industrial area along Vale Road as areas for improvement.
