Delivering our 2011 Manifesto (Maidenhead)

One of the biggest challenges we faced coming into power in 2007 was the long history of inactivity in Maidenhead town centre. There had been political disagreements and general uncertainty about how to make progress. We changed all that over the last 8 years and real progress is visible and very active in the town.

Work tirelessly to deliver regeneration of Maidenhead Town Centre delivering quality shops for residents and visitors

Regeneration is happening all around! A better shopping offer is supported as more people live and work in the town centre following regeneration activity and “Enjoy Maidenhead” promotions. We’re also conscious of changing shopping habits as the internet continue to impact conventional retailers.

Review the roads system to improve access and footfall into the town centre

Proposals to “turn left” from the A4 into Waitrose, the removal of unnecessary traffic lights and a now wider review has taken place

Support more regular markets and extra events on the High Street

Loads of events and markets continue in the town centre.

Improve and extend town centre parking, and bring in more free parking offers

New on-street parking spaces have been provided, and free residents parking permits have been agreed.

Keep the Town Hall and continue the work of the cross party Partnership for the Rejuvenation of Maidenhead (PRoM)

Town Hall kept; PRoM widely engaged and visible, on a cross party basis

Bring hanging baskets all year round to Maidenhead Town Centre

Done

Bring in Pay on Exit Parking at Nicholson’s car park

Done

Put no traffic lights on Maidenhead’s A4 roundabouts

None done!

Keep onstreet parking free

Done

Continue to support the Maidenhead Waterways Restoration scheme

The Borough continues in close collaboration with the MWRG to support delivery of the scheme. More work and effort is needed all round, but progress is visible and positive.
