Park Royal locals invited to help shape the future of new Old Oak West district

Old Oak and Park Royal (OPDC), the Mayor of London’s development corporation is holding a series of three public engagement events to hear from locals a which it says will help shape the future of a new district called Old Oak West.

Last year (June 2022), OPDC adopted its Local Plan which sets out a vision for the area for the next 20 years and includes a new area called Old Oak West. This covers Willesden Junction Station and North Acton and will be developed with housing, jobs and amenities. It will also be focused around the new High Speed 2 interchange, Old Oak Common station.

To get feedback from the local community, three sessions later this month will allow people to feedback on what they want as well as commenting on the development.

David Lunts, CEO, OPDC said: “We want to create a welcoming and inclusive district around the Old Oak Common Station that brings as many benefits as possible, both for those that live and work here now, and those who will come in the future.”

Mr Lunts added: “The local community is at the centre of our plans for the future of Old Oak West and through this series of co-design workshops, we want to work closely with them – taking on board their views and aspirations for the area and working together to create a vision for Old Oak West.”
