As­cot to speak up

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Does As­cot Park war­rant a vil­lage plan?

That’s the ques­tion eastern ward coun­cil­lor Faafoi Seiuli has for the res­i­dents of what he calls Porirua’s for­got­ten sub­urb.

Mr Seiuli has called a meet­ing for Thurs­day, Septem­ber 20, in the Rangikura School staff room at 6.30pm. Res­i­dents are in­vited along to see whether there is sup­port for such a plan for As­cot Park.

‘‘Porirua has done re­ally well with its vil­lage plan­ning pro­gramme,’’ Mr Seiuli says.

‘‘ Com­mu­ni­ties have been en­hanced and great pub­lic spa­ces have been cre­ated. It’s oc­curred to me, how­ever, that As­cot Park hasn’t made its voice heard yet.’’

Mr Seiuli says developments such as the syn­thetic turf at As­cot Park re­quire some community con­ver­sa­tions so the best out­comes can be se­cured for park­ing, lighting and gen­eral community use.

‘‘Rangikura School is a nat­u­ral hub of our community and it’s an in­clu­sive place for peo­ple to come to­gether,’’ he says.
