The Townscape Assessment was approved in August 2010. It considers the character of built-up areas across the Royal Borough, so allowing these special qualities to be better understood and reflected in decision making. In particular the study:
- Provides a factual description of townscape for the towns and larger villages;
- Defines broad areas of common townscape type and their key characteristics; and
- Recommends broad design principles for integrating development.
The study has been produced in three volumes: 1) Maidenhead and Cookham, 2) Windsor and 3) Ascot.
