"The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation's planning framework, to deliver 25,500 new homes and 65,000 jobs at Old Oak and Park Royal, was approved and adopted by the Mayor of London on 4 November 2015.
"Earlier this year, the Mayor published the framework document for consultation, and following a process of fine-tuning working with London boroughs, partners and strategic stakeholders, the OPDC Board and now the Mayor has approved the document to inform the strategic planning direction for the area.
"The Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF) aims to:
- Capitalise on the new HS2, Crossrail and National Rail interchange to regenerate the area and contribute significantly to London’s competitiveness
- Create a new urban neighbourhood at Old Oak, supporting a minimum of 24,000 new homes and an additional 1,500 in non-industrial locations in Park Royal
- Support the creation of 55,000 new jobs at Old Oak and a further 10,000 at Park Royal
- Protect and enhance Park Royal as a strategic industrial location
- Ensure new development safeguards nearby amenity assets such as Wormwood Scrubs and the Grand Union Canal
- Work with communities, residents and businesses to realise the strategy."
