Old Oak and Park Royal is set to undergo a massive transformation in the heart of West London. The Mayor of London established the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) in 2015 to oversee the largest regeneration project since the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The OPDC is the local planning authority for the 640 plus hectare development site, which spans the boroughs of Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham, and will therefore determine planning applications within the site boundary in accordance with their planning policies. However some of the smaller applications in our area will be delegated to us to deal with. Brent also has input into the OPDC’s Local Plan.
The OPDC will drive the development of a whole new centre and community for west London. It will become a major transport hub where High Speed 2 meets Crossrail, meets, possibly, the proposed West London Orbital. The OPDC ambition is to created approx. 26,500 new homes and 36,500 new jobs along with new open spaces and supporting infrastructure.
Brent Council supports the growth opportunities, new homes and jobs the regeneration will bring and we want to make sure that local residents and businesses benefit fully.
