The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) has completed consultation on its revised Local Plan.
The consultation, which ran from May 17 to July 5, is the first of seven steps towards the plan’s adoption.
One amendment to the plan is to move development nearer to Old Oak Common’s HS2 station. It offers potential to create a lively urban district with new and affordable homes, job opportunities, public space and facilities. The plan no longer proposes to bring forward housing in Old Oak North. It will be protected as a place for employment.
The changes are intended to support delivery of tens of thousands of homes and more than a million square metres of employment space, encouraging new businesses to the area and helping existing ones grow.
David Lunts, chief executive of OPDC, said: “We’re delighted to launch the public consultation for our Local Plan. Capitalising on the new High Speed 2 interchange at Old Oak Common, the changes proposed make for a more deliverable plan to support the regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal that will create a busy and thriving district to stimulate growth, prosperity and opportunities for residents and businesses.
“As well as a big increase in employment space, we propose to create a desirable, lively town centre and housing district that’s welcoming, inclusive and takes full advantage of the exceptional transport connections across London and beyond.
“An approved Local Plan is key to realising our ambitions and delivering tangible benefits for local communities, so by providing feedback, local residents and businesses will be playing an important role in shaping west London’s future over the next 20 years.”
