Windsor community invited to shape vision for town
The Windsor community will be invited to shape a compelling vision for how they’d like their royal town to evolve over the next 20 plus years, under an exciting new engagement project by the Royal Borough.
We will work with the Prince’s Foundation charity to engage and empower residents, community groups, businesses, and other partners to collaborate and reach a shared view of where Windsor should be heading as a distinctive and sustainable place to live, work, spend leisure time and do business.
The resulting “Vision for Windsor Charter” will complement existing and recently-agreed plans, including the Windsor Neighbourhood Plan, Corporate Plan, Borough Local Plan, and Environment and Climate Strategy, to help guide future decisions of the council and potentially a range of partners.
The engagement activity will include a series of workshops during the summer and autumn. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Councillor Andrew Johnson, the council leader, said: “Windsor has a timeless quality in some respects, but all places are always changing. In the wake of the economic challenges brought by Covid, and with Windsor at the heart of this year’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the time feels right to engage and empower the community around the future of Windsor and how they’d like to see it evolve as a high quality, sustainable and distinctive place."

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
A new year, a new logo, a new beginning
Why not start a new scheme in your street - A scheme is a group of members, usually in the same road or area, which has a coordinator to manage the scheme.
In the last week, we have had inquiries from various residents and we are delighted to announce that three new schemes are being set up.
There are many benefits to starting a scheme - awareness of types of crimes that affect our communities such as vehicle crime and advice on scams, access to CCTV, for instance.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about crime awareness though. It's about supporting communities and tackling issues within them like, loneliness and vulnerability.
Being aware of these issues will enable you to be proactive in your community to help those in our communities that need support.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to assist.
Valerie Pike, Chairman of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association.
