Thames Valley Police is seeking your views ahead of a Restricted Air Space Order application in Windsor.

We are working in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service to apply to restrict use of the air space up to 2,500ft within a 1.5 nautical mile radius around Windsor Castle. The Civil Aviation Authority will then review this.    While there are already many security measures in place at this site, if the application is successful, it will result in restrictions for those using the air space in this area.

Unless someone has an exemption or prior permission, anyone who breaches the restrictions faces prosecution.  This is a further method to keep the community living near this iconic location safe.

Our officers also carry out regular patrols in the area and there are a range of visible security measures in place, along with those which are not visible, to ensure everyone remains safe.
This is an application for a permanent restricted air space order, which will be regularly reviewed.

To express your views about the application, or if you have any questions, please email RAOWindsor@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk by 30th April.
