Apply now to join the Royal Borough’s new resident parking discount scheme


Motorists living in the Royal Borough can now apply online for their free, virtual parking permits to join the council’s new resident parking discount scheme offering one hour free in six popular car parks.

Residents can apply to get the discount at car parks in Alma Road and Alexandra Gardens in Windsor, Grove Road and West Street in Maidenhead, Horton Road in Datchet, and Meadow Lane in Eton. 

Just follow these simple steps to get started:

 Firstly, set up a free online account with the RingGo cashless parking system (if you don’t already have one)

  1. Then you can apply for your free virtual permits to get the discounts in the car parks you wish to use. Permit applications can be made via a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
  2. Once your application has been approved, start using your discounted sessions from Monday 4 April 2022, activated either through the RingGo app or via landline or mobile phone using the automated voice service.

 For more information on the scheme and how to apply, visit Check out our video showing how to apply via this page.

The introduction of the resident parking discount scheme makes the Royal Borough one of the only local authorities in England to offer such a scheme. Free parking will continue to be offered for disabled users and those using electric vehicles. Motorcycles can continue to be parked for free in their designated bays in selected car parks. If motorcyclists park in a normal bay, they will need to pay the usual fee unless they have joined the discount scheme.

You can apply for permits for all six, or just some, of the car parks. A separate application will have to be made for each car park except Maidenhead and Windsor where one application each covers both car parks in each of those areas. Applications for the permits only need to be submitted once and will last for up to two years.

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is inviting residents to join Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this summer by applying to hold street parties in their communities.

Events and initiatives marking Her Majesty’s milestone 70 years of service as monarch to the UK and Commonwealth will be held throughout the year, building to celebrations over the extended Bank Holiday weekend from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June.

To ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time, the council is asking anyone wishing to hold a party on the public highway to ensure they apply for a temporary road closure by the deadline and follow a few simple steps to help organise their day.

Littering is a costly mistake, Royal Borough warns.....As delegates at the COP26 climate conference continue to debate how best to protect our planet, the Royal Borough has called on all local residents to ensure they always put the environment first and don’t litter.

Two Royal Borough residents were both fined £220, with £150 costs and a £34 victim surcharge each at Reading Magistrates’ Court in September.

Both had dropped cigarette butts, contrary to section 87 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and failed to pay the fixed penalty notice issued as a result. The council takes a zero-tolerance approach against all forms of environmental crime, including fly-tipping, dog-fouling and littering, which unfortunately pollutes the environment for everyone.

Dr Choc’s Chocolate Factory has crafted a chocolate bar in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This extraordinary milk, dark and ruby chocolate bar infused with raspberry, cinnamon and orange is the delicious handiwork of our expert Chocolatier, Juan, who practises his art in the heart of Windsor, only a few feet away from Windsor Castle. This decadent creation was inspired by the pride of Scottish fruit, the raspberry, and the historic spice trade that introduced cinnamon and orange to Europe. While raspberry remains the prominent flavour, a touch of cinnamon enhances the delicate but tangy orange.
