DROP-IN sessions have started for residents to have their say on the planning for the Olympic games.
Windsor Racecourse is holding a public consultation tonight from 4-8pm and at the same time tomorrow.
And Sainsbury's, in Lake End Road, Taplow will be the destination for the public to air their views on Saturday from 10am-2pm.
More than 16,000 leaflets have been delivered in the Royal Borough, South Bucks and Slough areas, featuring maps of the traffic and parking arrangements, along with a list of questions and answers to provide additional information.
Cllr Simon Dudley, cabinet lead member for the 2012 Games, said: "We are delighted that the Games will be right on our doorstep and we expect the borough to benefit from being recognised as an official host authority.
"However, realistically there will be disruption for residents and businesses in the Eton Dorney area and for people using our roads and public transport networks.
Cllr Phill Bicknell, cabinet member for highways, transport and environment, added: "The plans are approaching their final stages and we want to see local people out in force at the drop-in sessions.
"In this way we can ensure that the Royal Borough's needs continue to be considered by LOCOG."
