Sculpture trail & £1.6m leisure facility plans set to be discussed tonight

Sculpture trails, education and building a £1.6m leisure facility in Furze Platt are on the agenda for a Royal Borough meeting tonight.

The Guildhall in Windsor

 

The cabinet will discuss plans for a sculpture trail along the River Thames, designed for artists to exhibit their work and encourage more people to take riverside walks.

A report proposes the public are consulted about which artists they would like to see on display and that businesses in the area will be contacted to sponsor some of the artwork.

Following a failure to provide a 'learning village' in 2011, the cabinet will discuss alternative means of providing full-time education for children who either don’t attend mainstream schools for medical reasons or have been permanently excluded.

It is hoped that offering a wider range of options and early assistance for children of primary school age will help those who are at risk of exclusion.

The proposed construction of a multi-purpose sports facility at Furze Platt Senior School in Furze Platt Road is also on the agenda.

It would include an all-weather sports pitch and a cafe and hopes to encourage 100,000 users each year.

If it gets the go-ahead it will be funded in a joint venture with the Royal Borough and the school. Work would start in Easter 2015.

The meeting will take place from 7.30pm at the Guildhall in Windsor.
