This website was the one-stop-shop for everything to do with the development of the local Neighbourhood Plan for Ascot, Sunninghill and Sunningdale. On the 29th April 2014, the Plan was adopted by the Royal Borough and it now forms part of its Development Plan.
The NP Steering Group, which led the delivery of the Plan, has now completed its task and this website will no longer be updated but retained only as a record of the Plan’s development and successful adoption.
There is still a need however to monitor and champion the Neighbourhood Plan’s policies and also to drive delivery of the Projects included in it. To this purpose, a group of local residents have formed a new Community Group called the Ascot, Sunninghill and Sunningdale Neighbourhood Plan Delivery Group. If you would like to contact them, please email: DeliveryGroup@ascotandthesunningsNP.com

Having a Plan or not does not affect whether development happens. Development will take place, whether there is a Neighbourhood Plan in place or not. If there is no Plan, none of the policies in it, which set out the type of development that is in keeping with our area’s character and the importance of the community being consulted over it, will have any effect. Future planning decisions would instead be based on the Borough’s policies and national guidance.
