A new Windsor Town Council is on the horizon, following an excellent petition by Windsor residents, and support from RBWM for a "Community Governance Review".

We the undersigned request that RBWM trigger a similar review into the creation of an equivalent Maidenhead Town Council.

Town Councils allow more new voices to get involved and help shape their own community's future. They can provide efficient locally targeted services with ring-fenced local budgets.

Across the UK, residents have worked to establish 270 new town and parish councils in the last 15 years. You can read more here: https://www.nalc.gov.uk/our-work/create-a-council
