Great Western Park Residents’ Association

For the GWP COVID 19 Community Support Group page click here!

Welcome to the website of the Great Western Park Residents’ Association (GWPRA).  We are a growing community on a 3,529 home development, straddling the South and Vale border, just west of Didcot, Oxfordshire, UK.

The Residents’ Association (RA) was officially formed following a residents’ meeting held on the 24th May 2012.  RA meetings are usually held monthly on the second Monday of each month.

The next public meetings will be on Monday 14th December 2020 at 8:00pm. Following the suspension for Covid 19 Community Support, the meetings will be online via Zoom, until further notice.  Everyone is invited to the meetings, so please come along take the opportunity to “virtually” meet your new neighbours and find out more about your Community.

Didcot Data Centre – planning application update

UPDATE: The planning application has now gone in

Details are here

The planning application will be lodged in a few weeks but there have been some changes since last year that are worth reviewing. The new leaflet information for the Didcot Data Centre is here. There have been a number of revisions to the original pre-application last year, following the public consultation. Details of the revisions and list of 20 questions and answers can be found here

At the virtual GWP Residents’ meeting on Monday 8th March 2021, there will be an opportunity to hear from representatives of the data centre developer. Please can you post any questions for them on our Facebook Group or email chairperson@gwpra.org.uk by Monday 1st March 2021, to allow them to provide detailed answers for you.

GWP Community Defibrillators – Covid19

✅ We have added Covid19 additional resuscitation guidance and extra PPE to our Community defibrillators at Boundary Park and the Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre. The choice of whether to do CPR in the standard way or modified for covid is down to you at the time but the extra PPE should help keep both rescuers and casulties safer.

💚 Our deepest thanks to Mark Hurley of H & H Building Services (GWP based builders) for funding the Pads and agreeing the fund the replacement battery when required.
