  • Survey: Mar 22, 2019
    5 questions

    Our council just spent £100K promoting themselves, with banners on lamp posts and a promotional film, when we've all seen Windsor going downhill in the 12 years the Tories have been in charge.

    What if they'd spent £100K making the town a better place instead? What would you do with £100K that would deliver real value to residents?

    Liberal Democrats in Windsor, Maidenhead and Slough are mourning the loss of long-standing colleague and former Royal Borough Councillor, Richard Fagence.

    Richard served as a party officer at local and regional level, having first joined the Liberal Party in 1964. He also acted as a trustee and secretary of the Windsor Liberal Club, helping to provide the leadership which sees the club flourishing today as The Acre. Richard was a member of the English Liberal Democrats' national council and attended most Liberal and Liberal Democrat party conferences for over 50 years; on one famous occasion in later years being caught on national TV taking a well earned nap during a prominent speech, much to everyone's amusement.

    As a regular user of the Victoria Street carpark, I started becoming increasingly frustrated with the outdated pay and display machines that were often out of order. This left me running up and down stairs to find a working machine; not ideal if you are a disabled driver, or like me, have small children. The
    I logged my concerns through the usual council reporting system but then started tweeting the council as it was quicker, and the breakdowns became an almost weekly occurrence. Towards the end of 2018, I heard, via the Windsor Town Forum minutes, that new machines were being installed. The deadline came and went but the frustrations continued until finally, the new machines were unveiled in January to much self-congratulation by the Conservatives on social media. That should have been the end of the story....

  • Average per Dwelling Council Tax RBWM

    In Windsor Liberal Democrats

    Figures published by The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government, show that despite the hype from Royal Borough Conservatives, the average household in Windsor & Maidenhead is paying well above the national average in Council Tax.

    The figures which are available from government website www.gov.uk show that the average per dwelling council tax paid by households in The Royal Borough is £1373 compared to the national average for England of £1258.

    Meanwhile Council Tax in neighbouring Slough is just below the national average at £1252.

    "Royal Borough Conservatives love to boast of the lowest band D Council Tax outside of London. What these figures show is that, because the Royal Borough has large numbers of high value properties, band D does not represent the actual council tax people are paying." says Local Liberal Democrat Julian Tisi.

    "Despite squeezing local services for the vulnerable, local Conservatives are running an expensive and inefficient council. Is it any wonder the council is in debt, when council tax is wasted on excessive allowances for the council's leaders and propaganda banners on lamp posts?"

    Conservatives in Windsor have been forced to admit that a leaflet they put out, claiming they had saved Wyevale and Squires garden centres in Dedworth, was untrue.

    Speaking to the Royal Borough Observer, a Conservative spokesman admitted the leaflet was untrue, but claimed it had been a mistake made by local Conservatives in west Windsor, who didn't know what was actually going on.

    A frustrated resident has hit out at the council's delay in replacing faulty car parking machines in Windsor.

    In November, the borough announced it would be bringing in new machines in the town's River Street and Victoria Street car parks.

    This followed allegations of alleged Advantage Card fraud at River Street and complaints that machines would not accept credit or debit cards and notes.
