"We want to work closely with local communities and its representatives to bring forward our proposals. Initial exhibitions introducing Old Oak Park [as an intended "single outline planning application"] and our team were held in venues around the Old Oak Common in White City, North Acton, Dalgarno and Harlesden in December 2014.
"Consultation on our masterplan for the whole site will continue throughout 2015 but our aim is to build close relationships with local communities to ensure that we are moving forward together as we plan for long-term growth, what it looks like and how it is delivered.
"We are also working closely with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and other neighbouring local authorities, as well as the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation who [sic] is building close links with the communities around the area and developing a Community Charter which will set the tone for engagement throughout the regeneration of the area. They will also have representatives of the local communities on their board and we look forward to working alongside them as our plans develop.
"We are still in the very early stages of our design process. Our world-class technical team are currently understanding the issues that surround the site and working on emerging ideas for the area. We will then be carrying out a full community engagement programme throughout the summer to ensure that local communities provide their comments and feedback that will help inform our designs.
"Following this, it is our intention to submit a [single?] planning application at the end of 2015 which will be determined by the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation, working with the site’s local authorities." [So, at worst, consent could be as corrupt as at Brent Cross!]
