Adopted local plan

The Local Plan guides development across the borough. For central Maidenhead, policy contained in the Local Plan is supplemented by that within the Maidenhead Town Centre Area Action Plan. As a result of a change to the planning system in 2004 and the adoption of the Maidenhead Town Centre AAP, some of the original Local Plan policies no longer apply. Those policies which remain relevant are known as 'saved' policies.

The South East Plan was partially revoked on 25 March 2013. The Order revokes the Regional Strategy for the South East, published in May 2009, except for policy NRM6: Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area.

The Local Plan and a list of policies indicating those which are saved can be downloaded below.

For the sake of completeness, the Adopted Local Plan Appendices are provided below as downloads. However, several of these appendices now need to be read in conjunction with updated advice, some of it in the form of supplementary planning guidance which can be viewed Supplementary Planning webpage. In particular, Appendix 7 on Parking Standards has been superseded by the Parking Strategy 2004.

The Proposals Map (and key file) which shows the boundaries of policies which have implications for specific areas is available on-line at the links below:

Please note, due to the large size of the files it is best to download the maps to a local drive and open them from there rather than open the files in a web browser. The maps are high resolution and can be zoomed in to the required location without loss of definition.
