Great Western Park Residents’ Association

Welcome to the website of the Great Western Park Residents’ Association (GWPRA).  We are a growing community living just west of Didcot.

The Residents’ Association (RA) was officially formed following a residents’ meeting held on the 24th May 2012.  RA meetings are to be held monthly on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30pm until 9:30 pm in the Northern Neighbourhood Committee Centre, Sir Frank Williams Avenue, Great Western Park.  There are no meetings planned for August in order to allow for annual summer holidays.

You are cordially invited to the meetings.  Please come along and lend your support in order to help make the night a truly successful one, as well as taking the opportunity to meet your new neighbours.  It is only by people’s attendance that will ensure the association is a true representation of the views of the residents of Great Western Park.

Great Western Park is a 3300 home development currently being built on the edge of Didcot which straddles the Vale border.

Plans include schools – both primary and secondary, shops, community centres, a health centre, open spaces and play areas.

The development is expected to take a decade to complete.

Planned protest in Didcot

You may be aware that Thames Valley Police have issued advice about a protest being planned by the No Dash for Gas group at Didcot Power Station from Friday 29th May to Tuesday 2nd June 2015.

To minimise any potential disruption to residents, security will be located at the A4130/Sir Frank Williams Avenue entrance of Great Western Park for the duration of the protest, 24 hours a day, to ensure that protesters do not park on the development.

The security presence should not affect residents and visitors to Great Western Park in any way. No parking permits or identification will be required.
