Covid 19 and the Parish Council
Due to the Covid 19 outbreak we were forbidden from holding any parish council meetings. The meeting that was due to happen this month, April, has been cancelled as we were awaiting further guidance from the government on what we could do.
On Saturday 4th April 2020 new laws were put in place changing how we hold our meetings during the lockdown. From May we are intending to have "remote meetings" ie video conferencing. More details will become available as soon as they are set in place.
The new guidelines state that the Annual Meetings cannot take place this year which means members that hold a position within the council keep that position now until May 2021 unless we wish to hold an Annual Meeting sooner after the lockdown has gone.

Community Planning for Corona Virus Isolation
OLD WINDSOR NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
The Old Windsor Neighbourhood Plan went to referendum on 10th October 2019. The plan was passed and the official result is here.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
A Neighbourhood Plan is a way of helping local communities to influence the future planning of the area in which they live and work. The Plan must be an evidence-based assessment of the social, economic and environmental needs of a community. In the case of Old Windsor, the Plan will give the local community an opportunity to have a greater say in the planning and development of the village over the next ten to fifteen years and once adopted the Plan will have legal weight and will be used when making planning decisions in the Parish.
A Neighbourhood Plan allows us all to have a say in where new homes, shops and offices and other developments should be built.
To identify and protect or develop local green spaces.
To influence what new buildings should look like.
