Thank you to everyone who got in touch via the post, over email, Facebook or Twitter, attended a workshop, came to a drop-in session or gave feedback through this site.
All of the feedback from the consultation has now been carefully analysed and considered to inform the next version of the OPDC Local Plan. This report, the Statement of Consultation, can now be read alongside the revised draft Local Plan, which summarises the comments and OPDC’s responses, including how they helped to shape the revised draft Local Plan.
The revised draft Local Plan for the Old Oak and Park Royal area is open to consultation until midnight on 11 September 2017. For more information on this consultation please visit london.gov.uk/OPDClocalplan.
Old Oak and Park Royal in west London is home to the UK’s largest regeneration scheme. Capitalising on HS2 and Crossrail investment, the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation aims to fulfil the Mayor’s vision and will work with partners to create world class homes and an exemplar new sustainable neighbourhood. A place where thriving communities can live, work and enjoy, and a destination to drive economic growth. This exciting and ground-breaking project aims to create more than 25,500 new homes and 65,000 jobs. That’s around 14 per cent of London’s employment needs up to 2031. The development of the area will boost the UK economy by an estimated £7 billion per year.
OPDC is the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation, which has been set up by the Mayor to oversee this regeneration programme.
The draft Local Plan includes:
As you go through the website, you will see that we ask you questions about each of the elements listed above. We really want your feedback, because it is crucial to the future of Old Oak and Park Royal that you are at the heart of the project.
We will read and analyse every comment you make, and use it to inform the next version of the Local Plan due for consultation in spring 2017, when we will ask you again for your views again.
This website presents OPDC’s draft Local Plan, which sets out a vision, accompanied by a set of policies for different topics and places. Once the plan is approved, it will govern how the area develops in the next 20 years. The plan builds on the opportunity presented by the arrival of Old Oak Common High Speed 2 Station and the unrivalled success of Park Royal as the UK’s largest industrial area.
This consultation is the first opportunity for you to help shape the future of Old Oak and Park Royal by giving us your comments on OPDC’s Local Plan.
