Ayapakkam is one of the developing villages in the Villivakkam constituency in Tiruvallur district.
Recently, BSNL Chennai Telephones has set up a Telephone Exchange office in Ayapakkam to provide broad band services in the area. Also ICMR-NIE (Indian Council of Medical Research - National Institute of Epidemiology) has been established in Ayapakkam.
1.Shri Krishnaswamy Matriculation School, 2.Sri Venkateshwara Matriculation School, 3.New Century School 4.Jehovah Jireh Primary School are some of the schools worth mentioning in and around Ayapakkam.
A lake situated in Ayapakkam called the "Ayapakkam Lake" remains as a fishing spot for some of the people who live nearby. The large numbers of trees around the lake provide shelter for thousands of birds thereby accounting for bird hunting.
Even though not up to the mark, Ayapakkam has manageable transport facilities that connect the village to the main city (Chennai). Transport facilities (via government buses) are available from morning 5.30 a.m. to 10.15 p.m. in the night. Auto rickshaws are the alternate means of transport of the people which are widely available during late nights and even during day time especially during peak transport hours (7.30 a.m. in the morning and 7.30 p.m. in the evening)
Un-surfaced roads remain a constant major problem for the people in Ayapakkam. Housing board scheme has been implemented and drainage systems are being formed in the neighboring areas of Ayapakkam. With that influence, Ayapakkam is expected to have better developments like 1.Extension of the plan to Ayapakkam, 2.Road Surfacing, 3.increase in the population etc.,
