The Old Windsor neighbourhood plan has been prepared by the community through the Old Windsor Neighbourhood Plan (OWNP) Group. The plan establishes a vision for the future of the parish and sets out how that vision will be realised through planning and controlling land use and development change over the plan period 2018 to 2033. The Old Windsor neighbourhood plan was formally adopted by the borough council on Tuesday 17 December 2019.
The Old Windsor neighbourhood plan passed the Referendum with an overwhelming majority. The Neighbourhood Plan will now be used as part of the Development Plan in determining planning applications.
