Windsor residents have until June 2 to respond to proposals to create a new Windsor Town Council.

The first elections for the council, if approved, would take place on May 4, 2023.

The plans for the council would see 21 members representing 10 new wards elected members, representing 10 wards, with its first elections on 4 May 2023.

Councillor Andrew Johnson, leader of the council, said: “This process began in September 2019 when a group of local residents began an e-petition calling on the council to undertake a review into creating a new town council. 

“The council has listened, we set up a cross-party working group with five councillors on it and this consultation on how a new town council for Windsor may look is the latest step in ascertaining what residents think and the level of support.”

The precept levied by the new council would be at least the current level that properties pay towards the special area account (£34.31).

Residents could pay more in the first year and the amount in the following years could be increased and would be determined by the town council.
