City in the West

Identity crisis or monstrous opportunity for the Thames Valley property market?

Event Summary

The story of the region to the west of London owes much of its history with many of the outer London boroughs finding themselves outside the London County Council, the Abercrombie plan and having an identity more associated with counties such as Surrey rather than the city.

Change is coming whether we like it or not: the arrival of Crossrail in 2019, beginning of the consultation process for the expansion of Heathrow, GWR electrification in 2018, upgrade of the M4 into a smart motorway and the connection of HS2 into the Thames Valley transport network at Old Oak Common. Overlay this with the massive economic changes from Brexit and across the pond, in the USA and we have the recipe for monstrous change in the Thames Valley.

Have these changes created a redefining and blurring of what is London, Home Counties and the Thames Valley?
