Stakeholder Masterplan Process

As part of the preparation of the Borough Local Plan (2013 – 2033), Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead committed to working with landowners and developers to prepare ‘stakeholder masterplans’ for developments above stipulated thresholds, which includes 100+ net new dwellings, and 5,000 sqm of employment or mixed use floorspace.

The stakeholder masterplan process requires developers of larger sites to engage with the Council, local community and other stakeholders at an early stage in the development process, and provides a framework for the preparation and submission of a planning application.

The site promoter is responsible for preparing the stakeholder masterplan document. IM Land has been working with the Council to agree the scope. form and content for the SMD for Spencer’s Farm, with a view to ensuring that the process provides a placemaking perspective. Following the consultation on the SMD, a final version of the SMD will be approved by the Council for development management purposes.
