New Queen's Park: "QPR’s plans for a stadium-led regeneration of Old Oak receive overwhelming community support"

"Thank you for responding to our consultation earlier this year.

"As you will remember, QPR’s plans involve regenerating Old Oak. We plan on building a new 40,000 seat stadium for QPR FC, creating 50,000 new jobs and building 24,000 homes.

"The stadium will be the beating heart of the huge regeneration scheme planned by the Boroughs and the GLA. It will generate activity, excitement, publicity, jobs and spin-off businesses; ensuring that the new development is a real place and not just another dormitory town of buy-to-let flats leaving little for the local community.

"In order to sustain a top-flight football club, QPR need to move on from Loftus Road and Old Oak is the only realistic place for us to move.

"As you know we have held an extensive consultation which involved a six-day public exhibition and 50,000 newsletters. We have had fantastic feedback from our consultation, almost 3,000 of you have got in touch. The key findings are:
  • 2,524 (89%) people agree with QPR’s vision for Old Oak while just 302 (11%) say they disagree.
  • 2,484 (88%) people support Old Oak as the location for a new QPR Stadium while just 332 (12%) say they disagree.
"We have received many useful comments e.g. about the need for improved healthcare facilities and school places in the area. We are now in the process of reviewing all the comments and feedback received during the consultation period and we will continue to work with the community as we draw up our plans in more detail. We will keep you informed of our progress."
