The Mayor of London has launched a formal review of the organisation that has been charged with the regeneration of Old Oak.
Sadiq Khan has called the review of the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC), which was established by former Mayor Boris Johnson, to ensure Londoners get the maximum benefits of the huge regeneration opportunity.
OPDC has full planning permission within its 650 hectare boundary that includes land in the boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham , Ealing and Brent , with a new High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail Station due to be constructed at Old Oak Common by 2026.
The Mayor wants to ensure that the plans deliver the most affordable housing possible , while also scrutinising the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding agreed in March that paves the way for OPDC to take ownership from government of public land surrounding the proposed new station.
Councillor Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council , said: "We welcome the Mayor of London's review to ensure that the regeneration at Old Oak and Park Royal brings maximum benefits to this part of north west London.
"There is, I feel, the need for greater ambition in the number of homes and genuine affordable homes, both critical to meeting growth projections.
"By bringing together shared public land and creating stations that are not just points of transit but are developed as hubs for commerce, housing and retail, and even more integration of rail services, such as a Crossrail spur to Wembley, our residents can easily access jobs across London.
"Brent Council's main priority is to secure improvements that support local residents including significant numbers of new affordable homes, new job opportunities and enhanced transport links.
"It's also important that the regeneration happens in a way that complements existing town centres including Harlesden.
"We look forward to contributing to the Mayor's review."
It is expected that the review will be completed within two months.
Brent Council recently welcomed plans for a Crossrail link between Wembley and the Old Oak site that emerged from a Local Plan consultation in recent weeks.
