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.
On Tuesday 13th November, Ben Smith, RBWM Head of Commissioning and Cllr Christine Bateson attended the parish council meeting to update the council and interested residents on the parking to be provided on Chobham Road.
After the extremely positive consultation earlier with 88% of respondents supporting the creation of the new parking area, work on the project has been proceeding with the engineers at the Project Centre and the stage 1 safety audit has taken place which has made slight amendments to the plans as originally presented. The safety audit raised 2 issues: the depth of buffer zone was increased slightly further into Chobham Road which will provide better indication to traffic on the Chobham Road of the parking area; and to provide an easier pedestrian crossing in the area of the new parking. The improved crossing will be a drop crossing with tactile paving the Stage 2 safety audit will review this again and any further safety amendments will be made.
The outline of the project has been confirmed with materials, fit to the environment, utilities etc being confirmed and the programme of works is due to start in January 2019. The estimated time for the works is 6 to 8 weeks and the Borough Officers will keep disruption of traffic lights as a priority for the engineering management of the project.
The will be a total of 13 spaces of 2.7m wide and additional parking will be provided in Halfpenny Lane and Northend Lane with the relaxation of the residents only parking during business hours.
Areas which were highlighted and requested at the Parish Council meeting were to look at a reducing the speed to 20mph in the area; a provision for exit out of Broomfield Park maybe a box junction and was it possible to shorten construction timings by working longer hours with more people and finish sooner.
The Parish Council will update as soon as more information is made available from the RBWM.
There will be an update by RBWM at the parish council meeting this evening – 13th November – at 7:30pm on the new car parking to be created on Chobham Road outside Lewis’, Costa Coffee and the Kluckow Gallery.
