Residents in Hammersmith & Fulham are being asked for their views on plans to transform Old Oak and Park Royal as part of a huge development.
The consultation runs until March 31 and is the first opportunity for H&F residents to help shape the future of Old Oak and Park Royal. There are several ways residents can find out about the plan and provide comments, including drop-in sessions, face-to-face workshops, online, by email and by post.
The plans could result in 25,500 new homes being built and creation of up to 65,000 jobs, all centred around a new railway station built to serve both High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail and handling 250,000 passengers a day.
The consultation is being run by the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC), which was created by the Mayor of London in April 2015 to oversee the scheme.
“These plans include a comprehensive transformation of the Old Oak area which would have a large impact on H&F residents, so it is important they make their views known,” said Cllr Andrew Jones H&F Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration.
“We would prefer this development was overseen by the borough councils whose land and residents will be affected, but without that direct control we will be fighting hard to ensure it will include affordable housing and job opportunities for local people.
“We urge our residents to use this consultation to add their weight to that cause.”
The local plan includes details of how and when the area will be transformed, key elements of the site and planning policies for future development.
This consultation runs separately to the ‘Old Oak Park’ consultation, which is also currently open to the public. This relates specifically to the Cargiant site, and is one of several developments that comprise the OPDC’s overall vision, each of which would be required to meet the criteria set out in its local plan.
