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.
RAISED TABLE CROSSING and ADDITIONAL PARKING – Chobham Road, Sunningdale
The Local Authority is aware that a number of pedestrians are having difficulty crossing Chobham Road. The shopping area is along both sides of Chobham Road, with limited facilities to enable shoppers to safely cross the road. The proposed raised table crossing will be part of a larger scheme to make the area safer for pedestrians, also reducing the speed of vehicles along this section of Chobham Road. Additional parking has been requested to help shoppers and local businesses.
The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is considering a 2 stage local safety scheme.
- Stage 1 would be the installation of a Zebra crossing on a raised table, just south of the existing dropped crossing point as shown on the attached plan. This will allow easier and safer crossing of Chobham Road as well as reducing the speed of traffic. Funding for this stage has been identified and, subject to the outcome of the consultation, it is proposed that the scheme would be delivered in the financial year April 2017 – March 2018.
- Stage 2 would be the creation of additional parking spaces outside the area of Costa Coffee in Chobham Road parade of shops. The slip road would be removed and additional parking introduced as shown on the attached plan. Funding for this stage of the scheme is yet to be identified and would again be subject to the outcome of the consultation.
Plans showing the proposals in greater detail are available on the website below, or to view at the Sunningdale Parish Council office and the Town Hall, Maidenhead.
