    The River Thames Scheme is designed to protect 15,000 homes on the flood plain from Datchet to Teddington from risk of further flooding.

    In his Autumn Statement Chancellor George Osborne announced an extra £60 million of funding for the £302 million River Thames Scheme.

    The total amount left for councils to provide was £142 million, however the Thames regional Flood and Coastal Committee have already pledged £29 million and Surrey County Council have added a further £1.5 million. Deducting these and the extra £60 million brings local government contribution to an estimated £51.4 million.

    Conservative claims that they sited the new Windsor Fire depot at Tinker's lane because there were more fire in West Windsor, have again been exposed as untrue.

    Last month Windsor Liberal Democrats published figures, obtained from Royal Berkshire Fire and Recue, showing that in the previous twelve months there had been, far more fires in the east of Windsor's "station ground" near the closed St Mark's Road Fire Station.

    The cost of councillors' allowances is set to rise another £10,335 a year after the Conservatives decided to promote another of their colleagues to "Cabinet" status.

    Cllr Philip Love, who is styled, "Principal Member for Maidenhead Regeneration" will be the beneficiary of most of the increase.

    Cllr Love's promotion follows the acrimonius removal of fellow Conservative, MJ Saunders as cabinet member for Planning & Maidenhead in August this year.

    A grant of £60m to help fund a scheme to prevent flooding in the Datchet and Wraysbury areas will be 'of no use at all' in the short term, according to a parish councillor.

    The funding was earmarked for the Lower Thames Scheme as part of the government's Autumn Statement on Wednesday.

    However, the money to increase the capacity of the Thames will not be provided until 2021.
