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.

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

The community has helped the department to identify principles for the redevelopment of the estate which will inform the shared community vision.

  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.
  3. In November 2019 several community focus groups were held on the estate to refine the 10 high-level principles.

In late November 2019, the Ascot Vale Consultative Committee was established and met for first time.

The Ascot Vale Consultative Committee was due to review the final principles for the Ascot Vale Shared Vision in early 2020. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this has been delayed.  Work on the masterplan for the estate will not commence until the principles have been endorsed and final Shared Community Vision has been prepared.

Once social distancing measures are relaxed, the Ascot Vale Consultative Committee will reconvene to review and endorse the principles which will guide the Ascot Vale Estate masterplan.

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 local 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.

In November 2019, several community focus groups were held on the estate to refine the 10 high-level principles. 

Work on the masterplan for the estate will not commence until the 10 high-level principles have been reviewed and endorsed by the Ascot Vale Consultative Committee.
