The Mayor of London’s development corporation for Old Oak and Park Royal (OPDC) has  announced a programme of public engagement, inviting the community to help shape the future of Old Oak.

OPDC’s recently adopted Local Plan sets out a vision for the area for the next 20 years. Central to this will be a welcoming and lively district called Old Oak West, with affordable homes, jobs and local facilities, focused around the huge new HS2 interchange, Old Oak Common station.

To ensure that the local community has the opportunity to have a say in the future of the area, OPDC is holding co-design workshops, activities and site tours, due to begin in the autumn.

OPDC is kicking off this programme of engagement with a series of drop-in and online information sessions to help people find out more about its newly adopted Local Plan, the next steps for Old Oak West, and how they can get involved.

  •  Tuesday 13 September, drop-in, 1pm to 6.30pm
    The Lab – Oaklands Community Centre, Oaklands Rise, NW10 6FJ
  •  Saturday 17 September, drop-in, 9.30am to 12.30pm
    North Acton Square, next to the tube station
  •  Monday 19 September, 6pm to 7pm
    Online via Zoom

David Lunts, ceo of OPDC said:

“We want to create a lively and welcoming new district around the Old Oak Common Station that brings as many benefits as possible, both for those that live and work here now, and the many thousands who will come in the future. Building on the policies and vision in our new Local Plan, we are now inviting local people to share their insights and ideas to help shape the regeneration of Old Oak. To get this started, we’re holding information drop-ins, and everyone is welcome to come along to find out more.”
