Response to Mayor of London’s Review of Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation

24 June 2016

Councillor Muhammed Butt, Leader of Brent Council, said: "We welcome the Mayor of London's review to ensure that the regeneration at Old Oak and Park Royal brings maximum benefits to this part of north west London.

 

"There is, I feel, the need for greater ambition in the number of homes and genuine affordable homes, both critical to meeting growth projections. By bringing together shared public land and creating stations that are not just points of transit but are developed as hubs for commerce, housing and retail, and even more integration of rail services, such as a Crossrail spur to Wembley, our residents can easily access jobs across London.

 

"Brent Council's main priority is to secure improvements that support local residents including significant numbers of new affordable homes, new job opportunities and enhanced transport links. It's also important that the regeneration happens in a way that complements existing town centres including Harlesden.

 

"We look forward to contributing to the Mayor's review."
