"Plans to regenerate Old Oak Common and Park Royal have been given the seal of approval from the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
"Eric Pickles gave the thumbs up to the scheme which promises to boost the economy in the area by £15billion through the creation of a brand new city with up to 24,000 homes and more than 55,000 jobs.
"Two new train stations which interchange with railway projects HS2 and Crossrail could be built in Harlesden under the plans drawn up by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
"Mr Johnson intends to establish a new body, known as the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC), to lead the transformation and following the approval from Mr Pickles an order has been laid before Parliament to pave the way of its creation.
"The regeneration of the 950 hectare site that straddles Brent, Hammersmith & Fulham, and Ealing will take place over a 30 year period."
