Sounds great. Especially the provision of the entry and exit points from the site. Well, that's the icing on the cake.

Might end up being quite far away from a golf course though.

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has unveiled early proposals for a new community as part of its major plans to build a borough for everyone.

Plans to develop part of the 132-acre Maidenhead Golf Club site for homes and a new school is another significant element of the council’s ambitions to transform Maidenhead and provide residents with the homes and modern facilities they need.

The development plan could create up to 2,000 new homes within walking distance of the town centre and close to the train station through which the new Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) will run from 2019.

Some 30 percent of the homes on the site will be affordable in line with the council’s commitment to provide housing for everyone.

Early details of the golf club project are outlined in a council report which is due to be scrutinised by councillors before it goes before cabinet regeneration sub committee and then to a special council meeting on Monday 30 October for the final decision to seek a development partner for the scheme.

Councillors are being asked to approve the emerging masterplan for the golf course, agree the process for securing a partner and agree a budget for acquiring properties that will benefit future access to the site.

Cllr Jack Rankin cabinet member for economic development, property and deputy for finance said: “By developing on this site we will create homes for our children and grandchildren to buy.

“The council will seize this once in a generation opportunity and build a borough for everyone, ensuring key workers can live here and our communities still function.

“We will provide high quality homes and facilities that have a sympathetic design that works with and enhances the surroundings.

“Preparatory work has already begun with ecological and traffic surveys underway.

“We are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to seeing the emerging ideas for the site.”

Only 60 percent of the area to the south of the town will be developed and ancient coppice woodland will be preserved alongside a new primary and secondary school, and a host of new community facilities.

Infrastructure including roads, drainage and community facilities including entry and exit points from the site will also be developed.

Cllr Simon Dudley, leader of the council, said: “This landmark development will bring a host of opportunities to the town. We are committed to providing the outstanding facilities Maidenhead deserves.

"I hope that we are able to provide people with a connection to the Royal Borough, either having grown up here or now working within it, access to these properties through a ‘first dibs’ approach.”

It's all related to the hurricane off the coast of Ireland, bringing along Saharan sand with it.

I am looking into digging deeper into the Saxon History of Poundfield. I could use a lot of still photos, and if by chance any video clips as well.
I will give credits to those, whose material I use. You can contact me through the Webmaster of

The sun being lower in the sky during October, November, December and January in the northern hemisphere, one always has the problem of sun glare on your lens. To solve the problem I have just ordered a set of Feewer Neutral Density filters, as you will see in the following clip:
So turn up your sound.

So make sure you register your objection to RBWM Maidenhead Planning. It is no good sitting and complaining, you have to flood the Planning Officer with your notice of objection. Yes Monty, I too, would like to see it returned into a village park.
