Sunningdale is surrounded by green belt and lies within the borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. It is approximately 15 miles from Heathrow Airport and 30 miles from Central London, and it is close to the M3, M4 and M25 motorways.
The Local Government Act 1894 introduced elected district and parish councils. Sunningdale Parish Council held its first meeting on December 31st of that year under the chairmanship of the Reverend Cree, the vicar of Holy Trinity Church at the time.
On this website you will find material on the workings of the council plus significant community-related content, including a fairly comprehensive set of local histories.

Lorry Watch. Over the last year or so, the parish council has worked with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to reduce the weight limit on the Chobham Road railway bridge for safety reasons. The limit is now set at 7.5 tonnes. Unfortunately, this is not preventing larger lorries from crossing the bridge, especially during the morning and evening rush hours.
Having taken advice from Trading Standards on what can be done to prevent this happening, we need to establish a lorry watch team which will monitor the lorries using the bridge, record the make, model and registration of overweight vehicles and report these to Trading Standards to follow up.
To do this, we need volunteers who are able to spend a couple of hours per day or per week as part of the team. If you are able to help, please contact Ruth Davies (Parish Clerk) on 01344 874268 or email@example.com.
