RBWM Transport and Highways satisfaction survey

Open until the 28th February, this is your opportunity to

Share your thoughts

Councils across the UK are asking residents to tell them what they think of Transport and Highways services in their area, and we’re one of those councils.

There are six independent surveys in total – we would appreciate if you can participate in one or all of them. The survey closes on Thursday 28 February 2019.

Each survey will only take a few minutes of your time.

Please share your views on:

  • Accessibility.
  • Highways maintenance.
  • Public transport.
  • Road safety.
  • Tackling congestion.
  • Walking and cycling.

Find out more about each category and submit your thoughts.

The answers you give will:

  • help us to understand how you feel about our service,
  • inform decisions about roads, cycling, bus services and public transport in the our borough.

You will remain anonymous by taking the survey online and the only details we ask are for demographic purposes such as your age range.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve only just moved to the area, or if you don’t pay council tax, we want to hear from a wide range of people.

You can take the survey in other formats such as:

  • in another language,
  • in large print.

To request a different format, or if you have other queries, contact Ipsos MORI:

  • email:
  • telephone: 0808 238 5486 (leave a message with your phone number).

Heathrow Airspace and Future Operations Consultation

The Heathrow Airspace and Future Operations Consultation is running for eight weeks from 8 January until 11.55pm on 4 March 2019. It is seeking feedback on proposed changes to our airspace and future runway operations.

This consultation gives you the chance to have your say on three key areas:

  • Airspace change for an expanded Heathrow: the local factors we should consider in different geographic areas when designing future flight paths.
  • Airspace change to make better use of our existing two runways: the local factors we should consider in different geographic areas when designing new flight paths for some arrivals on our existing two runways.
  • Future operations for an expanded Heathrow: how we will operate our three runways in the future, this includes managing noise; respite through runway and airspace alternation; directional preference and night flights.

There are 6 topics spread across 7 pages:

  • Airspace change 1
  • Airspace change 2 (continued)
  • Managing noise
  • Respite
  • Directional preference
  • Night flights 1 (Early morning arrivals)
  • Night flights 2 (Other night restrictions)

17 01188 Ben Lynwood Medical Centre update

At the parish council meeting on the 8th January 2019, council received a question from a resident regarding the status of the application  17 01188 for the medical centre at Ben Lynwood.   At the time, the council did not believe they had enough information to provide a complete answer and therefore the Chairman of the Planning Committee provided this at the planning meeting on the 22nd January.

We appreciate that this is an application which many residents have an active interest in, therefore the PowerPoint attached here is the presentation made to the planning committee.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the council, remembering that the planning decision is with the planning authority at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
