Petition update 2 from the council, 17 July 2012

Dear Supporter, about his time last year you signed the e-petition for the Permanent Footbridge across the Thames, contributing to over 2,500 signatures on all our petitions. Recently we have had agreement in principle from RBWM for the bridge to be located on Sutherland Grange, subject to planning permission and funding etc.

RBWM have recently published their Participatory Budget which includes an option to vote for some initial funding for development of the Windsor 2012 Legacy Footbridge (from Dedworth - Sutherland Grange - to the North Bank of the Thames). You have the opportunity until 31st July to vote to determine whether this ‘seedcorn’ investment is made. With the money from the Participatory Budget the Group will be able to develop the concept further and prepare for a planning application, essential for getting the future funds needed (future funding will be sought from sources such as the lottery, companies, benefactors and the public through a ‘buy a plank’ scheme).

To vote go to http://www.rbwm.gov.uk/web/consultation_participatory_budgeting_voting.htm and choose the 'Vote for your favourite project' box in the upper left centre of the page. Click the 'online questionnaire' link and od the questionanire. The first page of the questionnaire gives you 10 choices (bridge not among them) but on the second page choose 'Windsor' them the third page will allow you to vote for the bridge by giving it no 1 choice.

More details from petition creator

The ODA wish to build a temporary bridge from the west end of Windsor Racecourse to the North Bank of the Thames for the rowing event in 2012. We believe this should be a permanent bridge as a 2012 legacy in line with Government policy. This, linked with a smaller, new bridge from Sutherland Grange, will allow permanent access to the North Bank. We wish for RBWM Council to actively support this objective. For more details go to www.windsor2012legacy.co.uk
