The Park Royal Opportunity Area Planning Framework was adopted by the Mayor in 2011. It is available here:
Vision for Old Oak Consultation
Since that time, the Government has announced proposals for a new High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail station at Old Oak by 2026, potentially making it one of the best connected railway stations in the UK. This could give rise to significant potential for economic development, jobs growth and new homes. The Mayor of London also sees this as an opportunity to regenerate the wider area.
Based around the new HS2 and Crossrail station at Old Oak, the Mayor, Transport for London (TfL), plus the London Boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Brent and Ealing, have been considering the potential for regenerating the area and are seeking views on a 30-year Vision for Old Oak. This could transform the area with up to 90,000 jobs and up to 19,000 new homes, schools, open spaces, shops and leisure facilities.

The Greater London Authority (GLA), Transport for London (TfL) and the London Boroughs of Ealing, Brent and Hammersmith and Fulham (LBHF), produced a Vision for the Old Oak Area, which investigates the potential for regeneration and growth in the area around the proposed Old Oak Common High Speed 2 (HS2)/Crossrail Interchange.
The public consultation ran for 12 weeks between 28 June 2013 and 20 September 2013 and the two reports provide information on the outcome of this consultation. The first report outlines the strategy followed, provides detail on who was consulted and how, as well as summarising the key issues raised. The second report provides a detailed breakdown of all 614 responses received during the consultation.
The project team is now reviewing the comments and the next steps will be to produce an updated and revised Old Oak - Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF) that addresses these comments. A further round of consultation on will then take place in Autumn 2014, following which Mayor of London will adopt the plan as an Opportunity Area Planning Framework.
