Londoners are being given the chance to comment on plans to build a new part of the capital in Old Oak and Park Royal.
Now the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC), which was set up by Boris Johnson last year to drive forward the regeneration of the area, has issued for consultation its Local Plan which sets out the Mayor’s vision and the guidelines for how the site will develop over time.
Included in the Old Oak and Park Royal area is the Old Oak Park, owned by Cargiant. It launched its latests round of consultation for the transformation of the 46 acre plot at the end of January, which would create 7,000 homes and 8,000 jobs.
Mr Johnson is using the station as the springboard to deliver new homes and jobs in Old Oak and the adjoining Park Royal industrial estate.
The OPDC plan includes details of how the area will be transformed, details of distinctive parts of the regeneration site and planning policies for future development.
The consultation runs until March 31 and is the first opportunity for the public to help shape the future of Old Oak and Park Royal.
Unrivalled new part of London
Sir Edward Lister, Deputy Mayor for Planning and Chairman of OPDC said: “This is the first opportunity that west London residents and businesses have to contribute to the look and feel of the future Old Oak and Park Royal. With so much change planned it is vital that we receive the views of the local community so we can create an unrivalled new part of London.”
There are a range of ways in which to find out about the Plan and provide comments – at face-to-face workshops, online and by email and post.
They are on display, Acton Town Hall Library, Brent Civic Centre, Ealing Council Offices, Hammersmith Town Hall, Harlesden Library, Old Oak Community Centre and Shepherd’s Bush Library.
They are also available to view and comment online.
Responses can also be left by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, on Twitter by using the hashtag #opdclocalplan, or by writing to Local Plan Consultation, OPDC, City Hall, Queen’s Walk, London SE1 2AA.
OPDC will analyse all comments received and use them to inform the next version of the Local Plan which will be consulted on in autumn 2016. It is expected that it will be fully adopted in 2017.
