    Members of the Fair Funding for Borough Schools campaign are urging residents to 'keep up the pressure' on the council ahead of a meeting on Tuesday.

    The group has been campaigning against the borough's decision on Tuesday, April 28 to award £480,000 of developer funding to Holyport College.

    Catherine del Campo, one of the protesters, has been given the opportunity to speak at the full council meeting at Maidenhead Town Hall after a petition she launched on behalf of the group received 1,616 signatures.

    CONTROVERSIAL funding for a free school to which two top councillors have strong links was originally going to be for more than a dozen different schools, documents suggest.

    The Royal Borough has come under pressure over the past fortnight from a parents' group called Fair Funding For All Borough Schools for £480,000 of developer contribution cash being granted to Holyport College in April this year to facilitate an already fast-tracked expansion.

    The funding comes from developer contributions for a 271-home residential development in Stafferton Way, Maidenhead.

    According to council documents from January, the initial distribution of developer funding asked for by the council's education department was for close to £900,000 to primary and secondary schools across Maidenhead, including Year 7 entry at Holyport College, to meet needs in Maidenhead.

    Just a few days after their election victory Royal Borough Conservatives have moved to give themselves even more or your money.

    The increased allowances are being brought about by the creation of more posts on the council with additional responsibilities allowances. Increasing these allowances has been a recurring theme of the Conservative administration, with each new election, seeing the Conservatives hand themselves more goodies.

    Over 3 years on since the agreement to extend the car park, RBWM have not decided how this essential piece of infrastructure for Eton is to be financed.

    The proposal for the extension of Meadow Lane car park in Eton has been around for over 25 years. In 2011 with the shortage of resident parking and the further loss of resident parking spaces through the redevelopment of Rafts Boathouses the Brocas Residents' Group lobbied the developer and the Borough for the extension of this car park as a resolution to resident parking and other parking issues in Eton.

    Ofsted has graded Windsor & Maidenhead's failing council as "Requires Improvement" across all areas of its children's social services.

    The Conservative Council is revealed yet again, to be cutting corners in those areas of its responsibility which are less visible and only affect a minority of vulnerable residents.

    Article: May 10, 2015

    5000 new members have joined the Liberal Democrats in the two days since the general election.

    Windsor's Membership Officer, Andrew Clemo says,

    "It is simply incredible and it shows no sign of slowing down at the moment.

    Nationally we've had 5000 new members in 2 days.

    In Windsor we've already seen membership jump by just under 20% in the same time period."

  • General Election Result 2

    By Liberal Democrats Windsor Constituency

    We now need Proportional Representation, that's the clear message of the General Election result.

    Between them the Liberal Democrats, UKIP and the Greens clocked up a quarter of the vote on Thursday 7th May, but were rewarded with just 10 seats.

    The choice in the AV referendum in 2011was a choice between the Conservative's first and second choice of unfair voting system.

    Nationally we've now got a right wing Conservative government again, despite less than a quarter of the electorate as a whole voting for it. Locally strong strands of local political opinoin are also unrepresented in the council chamber.

    This problem has infact been with us for nearly 30 years, as far back as the 1980's the Liberal Alliance was polling as strongly as Labour in England, but getting less than a tenth of the number of seats.

    Support for proportional representation has come from some unexpected sources, with well known right-wing Conservative Euro MP, Daniel Hannan, a favourite amongst local Conservatives, calling for proportional representation in an article he wrote for website, Conservative Home, in April.

    If you agree with the Lib Dems, Greens, UKIP and Daniel Hannan that we need Proportional Representation, then consider supporting the Electoral Reform Society and Unlock Democracy's electoral reform petition here:
