About the OPDC Local Plan
What is a Local Plan?
OPDC is the local planning authority for Old Oak and Park Royal. Part of our responsibilities includes the production of a Local Plan for these areas.
The Local Plan sets the vision and framework for how the OPDC will develop over time. The Local Plan, along with the London Plan and any Neighbourhood Plans, forms the overall 'development plan' for the OPDC area.
Our Local Plan for Old Oak and Park Royal must be in general conformity with the Mayor’s London Plan and must be consistent with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG).
How is the Local Plan being developed?
OPDC carried out the first consultation on the Regulation 18 draft Local Plan and its supporting evidence base documents between 4 February and 31 March 2016. The next consultation was carried out on the first Regulation 19 revised draft Local Plan from 29 June until 11 September 2017.
Responses to both of these consultations informed the second Regulation 19 revised draft Local Plan, and its associated new and updated supporting studies, which was consulted on from 14 June to 30 July 2018.
On 4 October 2018 the Local Plan was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for independent examination - the final stage of creating a Local Plan.
