Plans to create up to 10 new parks are due to be discussed at the next meeting of the Royal Borough’s Policy Committee.
The scheme, to open ‘pocket parks’ described in the accompanying report as ‘small areas of inviting public space where people can enjoy relief from the hustle and bustle of town centre streets’, will be examined by the group before a decision is made on whether council officers should investigate it further.
Potential improvements to the council’s transparency practices are also on the agenda, with the aim of ‘making as much data publicly available for scrutiny and comment as practical and useful, with a focus on publishing more information’.
Efforts to implement crowdfunding measures to support projects will also be discussed at the meeting will take place on Monday at Maidenhead Town Hall.
