The renewal of the Ascot Vale Estate is a long-term project that involves replacing the current walk-up buildings on the Ascot Vale Estate with modern new homes.
On this page

Over the next 15 – 20 years the Ascot Vale Estate will be redeveloped to better support residents with modern housing, and well-designed community spaces and facilities.

The first step is working with the community to create a shared vision that describes the community you want to live in and will inform the Ascot Vale Estate masterplan.

In 2018, the community was invited to contribute their ideas to help create the shared vision over two phases of engagement.

  1. From late August to mid-October 2018, 18 principles were identified to capture the participants values and aspirations for the future of the estate.
  2. From early November to mid-December 2018, the 18 principles were tested and overwhelmingly endorsed by community members. Based on the feedback received, the principles were summarised in to 10 high level principles with actions to achieve them.

Commencing in late 2019, a third phase of engagement will seek feedback on the 10 high level principles and actions. Feedback will be sought from community members as well as a newly formed Ascot Vale Consultative Committee.

Frequently asked questions

What is a shared vision?

The shared vision will describe the community you want to live in and will inform the future masterplan for the Ascot Vale Estate. The shared vision will describe how the Ascot Vale Estate will feel; how it will look; how it will be used; how it will be accessed; how it will be inclusive; how it will be safe; and importantly, how it will reflect the values and aspirations of the community.

How can I contribute to the shared vision for the estate?

In 2018 the community was invited to contribute their ideas to help create the shared vision over two phases of engagement. The first phase ran from 31 August to 14 October 2018, it identified 18 draft principles to capture the participants values and aspirations for the future of the estate. Between 5 November and 16 December 2018 these principles were tested in a second phase of engagement and were overwhelmingly endorsed by community members. Based on the feedback received they were then summarised in to ten principles and the actions needed to achieve them.

The ten high level principles and actions will be tested and refined again by the community in phase three of engagement. This engagement will start in late 2019 and will involve conversations with community members and input from the Ascot Vale Consultative Committee.
