"A £5 billion new town on the banks of the Grand Union Canal is being planned for the vast Cargiant supermarket site at Old Oak Common, the Standard has learned.

The world’s biggest motor dealership wants to build around 9,500 homes and a new high street on the sprawling 45-acre site in west London it has occupied for 34 years.

Other elements of the vision include a 'cultural hub' in the Art Deco former Rolls-Royce car maintenance works building that now serves as Cargiant’s HQ, a primary and secondary school and a new dock on the canal for leisure craft."
