Voting in council on Tuesday 20th July 2021 Windsor & Maidenhead Conservatives voted against giving Windsor its own Town Council.
Most parts of Windsor & Maidenhead have Town or Parish councils except Windsor and Central Maidenhead.
Conservative arguments tried to imply a Town Council would cost more, would create an unneccessary tier of government and create more councillors. They also tried to claim, despite a petition signed by thousands of Windsorians and consultation responses overwhelmingly in favour of setting up a Windsor Town Council that there wasn't public demand for a Windsor Town Council.

Thank you to everyone who attended our latest Green Team Community Litter Pick on Saturday. It was our most successful yet and we ran out of equipment!
Adults, children on scooters and dogs all came together to clear the area in and around Vansittart Park of rubbish and broken glass. It is now safer and more pleasant for all.

The Liberal Democrats are calling on the Government to keep masks mandatory on public transport after 19th July.
Munira Wilson MP, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Health, believes it would be a small price worth paying to protect others:
"Many people, especially the vulnerable, do not yet feel confident enough to travel on crowded public transport. There are millions who have still not been double jabbed, and are therefore at greater risk of both becoming ill themselves and spreading the virus to others.
Keeping masks mandatory on public transport which can often become overcrowded is the right thing to do.
We have all made tough sacrifices throughout this pandemic, and asking people to wear masks on public transport a little while longer to protect others, is a small price worth paying.
I fear that the Government's desire to remove all restrictions on the 19th July is driven more by internal battles within the Conservative party rather than sound scientific advice.
The Health Secretary is too busy trying to appease members of his own party who have been determined to put an early end to restrictions no matter the costs to the public's health. He should stop prioritising politics over science."

Lib Dems in Windsor are furious to discover money available for crossings in Windsor has not been spent at Mill Lane.
Questions have again been raised about how the council prioritises its spending, which were also raised in the recent report by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy (CIPFA) into the council's administration, after the installation of a new duplicate pedestrian crossing in Alma Road less than 80 metres from an existing crossing in a location with light footfall.
