Old Oak and Park Royal Great Place Scheme

In March 2017, OPDC was awarded a grant of almost £1.5 million from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

This will be used to ensure that art, culture and heritage are at the heart of the major development planned for the Old Oak and Park Royal.

Victoria Hills, Chief Executive Officer, Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation, said:

This funding is a welcome boost for Park Royal, to celebrate the successes of the UK’s largest industrial site and to ensure local residents and businesses play an authentic role in shaping the future regeneration of the area. As the UK's largest and most vibrant industrial park, we look forward to working with local communities in and around Park Royal to deliver early culture-led regeneration projects as we help businesses prepare for the arrival of the 'superhub' HS2 and Crossrail station‎.

The Great Place Scheme is an ambitious and community-focused three-year programme of activities, events and projects.

There will be opportunities for local people, businesses and organisations to ensure art, culture and heritage is celebrated.

Initial proposals for the programme include working with 2,000 local volunteers, an engagement programme designed to reach all school children in the area, and community-led research.

We want to ensure local residents and businesses play an authentic role in shaping the future regeneration.
