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 9:30pm 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.
As you may be aware The District Centre is located at the heart of Great Western Park and will form the social and retailing hub for local residents and the wider Didcot population. From a retailing perspective the Centre will incorporate an Asda food store and 10 retail units of varying uses which are considered suitable (other uses will also be considered) including a pharmacy, vets, bakers, hairdressers, dry cleaners, estate agents, bookmakers, restaurant/café and hot food takeaway.
They are now welcoming enquiries from interested parties for the new high quality retail units which will be available for occupation from Summer 2017.
Please pass on to any interested parties.
This is a reminder that the next Great Western Park Residents Association meeting is due to take place on Thursday 2nd June2016 at 7.30pm, Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre. Refreshments will be provided.
