The Council's Business Plan (2021 – 2026)

The Parish Council's vision is that Sunningdale is a desirable and attractive place to live, work, study and visit with a strong sense of community and local involvement. It is responsible for running several services & facilities for the community:

• Broomhall Recreation Ground.
• Allotments at Church Road.
• Cemetery at Kiln Lane.
• Cemetery at Holy Trinity Church.
• Citizens' Advice Bureau (service operated by Citizens' Advice East Berks).
• Pop-up Library (service operated by RBWM).
• Sunningdale Village Hall (owned by the Parish Council and leased to Sunningdale Village Hall Charity, which is responsible for the day-to-day operations.)

The Business Plan sets out the priorities to achieve the vision. Full details of the plan and more information about Parish services can be found here and here.

The Parish Council is now reviewing its Business Plan and needs your views which will help shape its review. It's important to understand:

• How the existing services and facilities could be improved.
• Are there any other services you would like to see provided by the Parish Council?
• What improvements to infrastructure (if any) are needed? This will help make decisions about how to use the Sunningdale Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funds.

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a charge levied by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, on developers who build new homes in Sunningdale. The Parish Council receive 25% of this fund and currently the share of this fund is £1.549 million. Funds must be used to build new or improve existing infrastructure to meet the additional demands created by the increase in population in Sunningdale.

Infrastructure can include affordable housing, new & improved play and open spaces, the provision of allotments and other community buildings or facilities, as well as projects in the Sunninghill & Ascot and Sunningdale Neighbourhood Plan, which can be viewed here.

The Parish Council has already committed to a new footpath along Whitmore Lane, improvements to Bridleway 1 near Coworth Park to the A30 and the introduction of 20 mph speed limits on some roads. Further information is available to view here.
If you have any questions, please contact the Parish Office on 01344 874268 or by email:
