Join the Big Conversation on Active Travel

Earlier this year Sunningdale Parish Council formed a joint working party with Ascot and Sunninghill Parish Council to work together to improve infrastructure and encourage leisure and active travel.

The RBWM has started their Big Conversation on Active Travel looking for your ideas to help shape walking & cycling improvements.

Active Travel, reducing use of motor vehicles for shorter journeys, is an important part of RBWM’s Environment and Climate Strategy and also has personal benefits for our physical and mental health.

There is a drop-in session organised by RBWM to explain more about Active Travel and its themes:

8thSeptember, 4pm-7pm at the Community Room at Sunningdale Parish Office, Broomhall Recreation Ground.

Parish Councillors from the working group will be there as well.

For more information on how to join the conversation,

Do you wish to retain Sunningdale Library Service?

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Consultation on library services finished on the 30 April 2021 with the outcome that Sunningdale will lose the provision of a library via the container library which currently visits on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Our library service will remain at a reduced 9 hours per week from June to September 2021, but without any other funding, it will then stop, and ASCOT will be the closest library.

Sunningdale Parish Council, your local council, is prepared to provide space and some of the funding required to continue the library provision for Sunningdale, but before we do so, we need to know whether this is what you want.

So, we ask you to answer JUST 3 QUESTIONS and then we will know your views.

1. Do you want to keep a library service in Sunningdale?

YES     NO     

2. Would you agree to pay an extra £2.60 per household PER YEAR to assist the Parish Council to fund 9 hours of library service? (Charge based on Band D council tax band)

YES     NO

3. Would you agree to pay an extra £4.62 per household PER YEAR to assist the Parish Council to fund 16 hours of library service? (Charge based on Band D council tax band)

YES     NO

Thank you for your answers.

Please confirm you are a Sunningdale Resident.                                 YES               NO

If not please provide your postcode for reference.                              Postcode:     

Please ensure all answers are received by the council not later than 6pm Monday 21June 2021.  Either by completing this form or emailing the council on the email below with your 3 answers.
