The Tapestries are now listed
The Tapestries, Old Windsor, Straight Road, Old Windsor, Windsor
Granted Listed Building Status (List Entry Number: 1474121)
Following your application to add the above building to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest, we have now considered all the representations made and completed our assessment of the building. I am pleased to inform you that having considered our recommendation, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has decided to add the Tapestries, Old Windsor to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The building is now listed at Grade II.
Please click on the link below to download a copy of our advice report, which gives the principal reasons for this decision. The List entry for this building, together with a map, has now been published on the National Heritage List for England, and will be available for public access from tomorrow. This List can be accessed through our website.
The local planning authority will now be preparing the statutory notices required under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
Please be aware that the listing of the building took effect on the day that the List entry was published on the National Heritage List for England.
As of 25 June 2013, the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act (ERRA) has enabled a number of heritage reforms, including an amendment to the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 that provides two potential ways to be more precise about what is listed. Whether or not the new provisions have been invoked with regard to this building is explained in the Advice Report. A List entry that makes use of these provisions will clarify what attached and curtilage structures are excluded from the listing and/or which interior features definitively lack special interest; however, owners and managers should be aware that other planning and development management constraints might apply to these structures, and should clarify these with the Local Planning Authority. Further information is available on our website at
If you consider that this decision has been wrongly made you may contact the DCMS within 28 days of the date of this letter to request that the Secretary of State review the decision. An example of a decision made wrongly would be where there was a factual error or an irregularity in the process which affected the outcome. You may also ask the Secretary of State to review the decision if you have any significant evidence relating to the special architectural or historic interest of the building which was not previously considered. Further details of the review criteria and process and how to request a review are contained in the annex to this letter.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance. More information can also be found on our website athttps://historicengland.org.uk.

OWPC response to Alternatives to River Thames Scheme
We received a letter from RBWM and the EA asking for alternatives to the River Thames Scheme. We now know that the River Thames Scheme Channel that was proposed for within Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, is not going ahead following the decision by the Sponsorship Group to not include it, as the Borough was not able to commit to its contribution at this time. This was the relief channel, similar to the Jubilee River, that was going to come out of the Thames at Datchet and go back in by Bell Weir at Staines. This was designed after the 2014 floods to try and prevent a repeat of the flooding in this area and across the river in Datchet and Wraysbury. Our response is in the link below.
