Answered By: 
The Mayor

The delivery of a mix of high quality new homes, including affordable housing, within Old Oak and Park Royal is an integral priority for the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC).

Work undertaken on the Local Plan has identified the potential to build 25,500 new homes in this area over a 40 year period. Over the coming year OPDC will undertake detailed work to do to identify how much of this new housing can be affordable. This will then be set out in the next consultation version of the Local Plan.
