The best spots for high rise buildings and the most valuable green spaces in the Royal Borough were among topics covered by a Local Plan Survey, the results of which were discussed by councillors last week.
The findings were summarised at the Local Plans Working Group at Windsor Guildhall on Tuesday, April 19.
The survey was carried out last summer to help develop the new local plan for the borough. A planning framework for the future, the plan will be published later this year for a full public consultation.
The survey received 643 responses, of which were from local businesses and 444 from borough residents.
Asked what areas should be given extra protection from development, Poundfield in Cookham was the most popular choice followed by Deerswood Meadow in Ray Mill Road East and Braywick Park.
The survey found the public thought the best places for tall buildings in the town were around the railway station and Stafferton Way.
