Public vote for their favourite Maidenhead projects

Completing the Thames Path and supporting the Waterways Project have come out as top priorities for spending council tax in Maidenhead.

A total of £50,000 in capital funding will be spent on projects in Maidenhead as part of the local budget consultation, which invites residents to vote for schemes they want to see go ahead in their local areas.

Improvements to roads and paths will receive a £15,000 boost after scooping 23 per cent of the votes, followed by a £10,000 contribution towards completing the Thames Path and £9,000 towards projects to encourage new businesses.

A further £16,000 will be split between the Waterways Project and improving cycling facilities.

More than 1,600 people voted for schemes across the borough in the third annual consultation, which also saw an extra £75,000 earmarked for highway and pothole repairs as well as £25,000 for schemes to reduce anti-social behaviour.

The priorities listed for people to vote on were once again drawn up thanks to input from parish councils, borough councillors, chambers of commerce and local town forums and partnerships.
