Last year, the Mayor of London working with, Transport for London (TfL), Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham Councils consulted on a vision to regenerate Old Oak.
The Mayor of London's Further Alterations to the London Plan (2014) identifies the capacity for Old Oak to accommodate 24,000 homes and 55,000 jobs. To support this transformational change and to continue to protect and regenerate the Park Royal industrial area, the Mayor wishes to put in place a single, robust plan across both areas with clear direction and governance.
Within Old Oak and Park Royal, the Mayor intends for the new Corporation to take on powers relating to infrastructure, regeneration, land acquisitions including Compulsory Purchase Orders, adopting streets, and business and financial support. In addition, the Corporation would also take over planning powers from the London boroughs of Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham. The Corporation would lead on preparing the local plans and determining large planning applications submitted within this area.
The Mayor wants to know what you think about the Corporation taking the leading role in planning for the development and regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal.
How to participate?
The consultation will run from 18 June 2014 to 17.00 on 24 September 2014.
