The regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal is a once in a lifetime opportunity, facilitated by huge investment in public transport that will see a new super-hub High Speed 2 and Crossrail station. I am setting up a new Mayoral Development Corporation to ensure that the regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal can maximise the benefits of the significant planned transport improvements, that could see up to 24,000 new homes and 55,0000 jobs.  My team are working with all landowners and businesses in the areas, including QPR, to deliver this vision.
