The village plan sets out a vision for Ascot Park and an action plan for improving and enhancing the village, as well as a history of the suburb and an outline of its makeup.

The plan has been developed by the group using feedback from residents that has been gathered at community events and through surveys.

Upgraded walkway

Ascot Park residents are enjoying the newly upgraded Conclusion Walkway.

The upgrade has been done through the Council’s Village Planning Programme in partnership with the community through the Ascot Park Village Plan Group, which wanted to make the track more accessible. It has involved the construction of a new track to bypass a steep, slippery section that was almost impassable during winter – plus the installation of six new seats.

The walkway can be accessed from access from Whitford Brown Avenue near Aotea, from Conclusion St, Doncaster Terrace, Coventry Close & Almora View in Ascot Park, and from Iona Place and Livet Place in Papakowhai.

The grade is moderate, the walk is aprox 3.2 kilometres return, and it takes an estimated one hour in a loop. Find out more

Fair celebrates community at Ascot Park

The community of Ascot Park are in the early stages of village planning.

A community fair was held in March 2013 with the aim of encouraging residents to get to know one another, There were games for the children, bouncy castles, music and spot prizes and an estimated 200 people took part.

Residents were also invited to fill in a survey about what they love about Ascot Park and what they would like to see changed. This information will be used to develop a village plan for the village.

As part of the work to connect the community, Cr Faafoi Seiuli has been organising regular monthly meetings and weekly community walks. A community BBQ was also held.

A facebook page "Ascot Park Community Notices' has been established to keep residents informed. The Facebook link above will take you to the page.
