SPAE has been the planning watchdog for residents of the SL5 postal area (Ascot, Sunninghill and Sunnigdale) for 40 years, with around 1,500 members on a apolitical, semi-charitable basis.

Wildlife in Ascot

WIA is a group of local people living interested in wildlife. Their aims are to preserve and enhance biodiversity in our area and learn more about what wildlife is around us.

Planning related websites

RBWM Planning Module (PAM)

This is RBWM’s planning portal, where you can search for any planning application. Either by application number (if known, this is easiest way), or by address. Clicking on “Associated Documents” takes you into the heart of PAM where all documents relating to that application sit.  If you wish to comment on an application, you must do so by the deadline shown in the yellow panel as the “Consultations were completed on” date.

RBWM Maps Online

This is a really interesting and useful website. Search is by entering a property name or house number. Having found the right property, click on “MY MAPS”. This shows you the site and surrounding properties.

RBWM Planning Applications Received & Decisions

RBWM publish weekly a list of all planning applications received and all planning decisions made. The lists are grouped by Parish/Ward – you have to scroll down to find “Sunninghill and Ascot” and “Sunningdale”.
