Title: IMPORTANT ACTION NEEDED TO SAVE POUNDFIELD!!
Post by: Cookham Webmaster on December 02, 2016, 02:13:58 PM
The official six-week public consultation period for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (“RBWM”) Borough Local Plan commences on 2nd December 2016.

The draft Plan includes the proposal to designate Poundfield as “Local Green Space”. Please submit your letter of support for this proposal to preserve this site for future generations. Providing they are also residents of the RBWM, your family and friends can write in too to show their support.

Step-by-step instructions on how to email your letter are given below (it’s really simple!):

STEP 1 - WRITE YOUR LETTER

· Load attached example letter

· Add any points you wish to make to personalise it

· Add your name and address

· "Save" the letter (use "File", "Save As" and enter a name)

 

STEP 2 - EMAIL YOUR LETTER TO THE COUNCIL

· Start new email

· Address to: planning.policy@rbwm.gov.uk

(NB: this is a different email address from the one used to submit planning application objections)

· In the "Subject" Line put “Borough Local Plan Consultation 2016”

· Please BCC: poundfieldprotection1@gmail.com            

· Send!

NB: You should receive an immediate acknowledgement from “Planning Policy” at RBWM. If you do not, check the email address and resend.

Please send in your letter of support to save this valuable Green Space!

PLEASE NOTE - URGENT CHANGE TO BOROUGH LOCAL PLAN EMAIL ADDRESS

It appears that RBWM are using a dedicated email address for Borough Local Plan Consultation.

If you haven't already done so, please can you send Local Green Space support letter to the email address below (also bcc: poundfieldprotection1@gmail.com):

blp@rbwm.gov.uk

As per Cookham Webmaster's information above, I have just discovered that the RBWM have set up a separate portal for the Borough Local Plan Consultation and supporters of Local Green Space Designation for Poundfield should in fact send their letters to :  blp@rbwm.gov.uk More details on www.savepoundfield.co.uk. Alternatively they can input their support directly onto the BLP consultation portal or send letters by mail to: Planning Policy (Borough Local Plan Consultation), RBWM, Town Hall, St Ives Rd., Maidenhead SL6 1RR.

Hi Tudorrose - I have submitted the letter from the savepoundfield website but the one that is spoken about above is different I believe. I was trying to follow the above instructions referring to an attached letter and couldn't see it. I was worried that if others did the same they may lose interest and give up...thanks.
