Statement of Community Involvement Update and Engagement Strategy

Start date: 13 June 2019
End date: 26 July 2019

Thank you for your comments

This Consultation is now closed. OPDC teams are reviewing comments and will be in touch in September with next steps.


OPDC was established by the Mayor of London in 2015 to oversee the regeneration of the Old Oak and Park Royal and is committed to achieving a high level of community involvement as part of this.

We have published two draft documents for public consultation which will help OPDC to effectively utilise the community’s wealth of local knowledge and set out how they will be involved in guiding future regeneration of the area:

Statement of Community Involvement Update

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how and when OPDC will consult communities in the process of planning for the Old Oak and Park Royal area, both in producing planning policy and in carrying out its development management functions. The SCI also provides guidance to developers for how they should consult communities when bringing forward planning applications.

OPDC Board approved and published OPDC’s current SCI in February 2017. Following review, OPDC has produced the draft SCI update to ensure that the document remains up to date and relevant and is in compliance with latest statutory requirements.

Draft Engagement Strategy

Whereas the SCI relates solely to OPDC’s role as a local planning authority, the Engagement Strategy relates to OPDC’s broader responsibilities and activities as a Mayoral Development Corporation. It sets out the overarching approach to added value engagement and outreach with local people. The Engagement Strategy complements and supports the SCI and demonstrates how OPDC will add value to its statutory engagement activities.
