RBWM - local plan for the Traveller community

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is preparing a Traveller Local Plan which will set out how the accommodation needs of some of the specialised communities in the Borough (Gypsy and Traveller, Travelling Showpeople and boat dweller groups) would be met. This will be subject to an ongoing programme of engagement and consultation. When it is adopted, the Traveller Local Plan will form part of the development plan for the area and be used in determining planning applications.

The Issues and Options paper forms the first stage in plan-preparation. A vital part of this process is seeking the views of residents from the Travelling communities, the settled population and other interested parties on the options and questions explored in the paper and also on the supporting documents.

The consultation will run from Monday 14 January 2019 until Monday 25 February 2019 (midnight).

Documents can be viewed in the following locations:
