To support the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council’s ambition to be a net zero carbon district by 2050, we have been working alongside the Council’s Planning Policy and Sustainability teams and Bioregional to prepare a Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document.
Supplementary planning documents (SPD) aim to expand upon or provide more detailed guidance on local plan policies.
What is the purpose of the Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document?
It will set out the measures required to design and construct new development that improves the Borough’s environmental performance and will contribute towards lowering its environmental impact, including more broadly, mitigating and adapting to climate change.
The Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document aims to contribute towards attaining the Council’s commitment to deliver carbon reduction and improve biodiversity. It includes chapters on energy and carbon, climate adaptation, sustainable materials and construction, biodiversity, and transport.
Following its preparation, the Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document Consultation is now live for public comments.
When will the consultation close?
The consultation will close at midnight on Monday 27 November 2023.
Further information on the consultation can be found on the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document page.
