Answer for Old Oak Common - Car Giant Public Consultation

Answered By: 
The Mayor

GLA and OPDC would be the determining authorities for any future Car Giant planning application. Given that Car Giant own around 20 hectares of land at Old Oak, you won't be surprised to hear that both authorities are working with this key landowner to ensure an acceptable planning application is submitted for determination. Both authorities and decision makers are also very aware of the process that needs to be followed, so as not to pre-determine any planning applications. GLA and OPDC are meeting with local residents to seek their input into planning policy and will consult local residents on any planning application.
