"The world's largest second-hand car dealership is to be turned into a “new Little Venice” with three-quarters-of-a-mile of canalside cafés, restaurants and parks under a £5 billion plan announced today.
"The ambitious vision was revealed by Cargiant, which occupies a 46-acre site between the Grand Union Canal and Willesden Junction station.
"It is by far the biggest stretch of land in the hands of a single private owner in Britain's largest regeneration zone.
"The scruffy windswept site would be renamed Old Oak Park and turned into a new town with 9,000 homes, a high street, public squares, schools, health centres, offices and a new Overground station called Hythe Road, as well as the canal frontage."
"In addition, regarding the event on Saturday 20 June at the Thames Harriers Clubhouse at the Linford Christie Stadium, the developer and key members of their development team, will provide a presentation to Grand Union Alliance members, friends and contacts (in a separate room at 11am), a question and answer session and refreshments (as requested at the last GUA meeting)."
