The Conservatives say they kept all 104 of the promises the party made in 2011 and have put forward 138 pledges in its new manifesto.
The 2015 manifesto was launched yesterday (Wednesday). It promises to keep council tax down, protect the greenbelt and backs plans to open a satellite grammar school in the borough.
Other pledges include opening up a new library, and doubling the number of community wardens from 18 to 36.
Conservative leader, Cllr David Burbage (Bray), said: "These pledges will be well received by residents. Our eight years at the borough have taught us a lot about how local authorities run, and we think we have done a good job."
Council tax has been reduced in the Windsor and Maidenhead for each of the last six years, and the Tories promise to keep it down.
Cllr Simon Dudley (Con, Oldfield) said "It's just a big issue on the doorstep. When we talk to residents people really do appreciate low council tax. It's important to them."
The party says it kept to all 104 of the pledges it made in 2011, which included campaigning to keep police stations open, and 'fighting' to keep health facilities in the borough.
