About the area

Old Oak Park is at the heart of Old Oak Common, surrounded by a number of long-established West London communities. The vision for Old Oak Common will transform a vast swathe of industrial land into a thriving new part of London, supported by the Mayor of London and the local Boroughs.

Old Oak Common will be the meeting place of Crossrail, HS2, the Great Western Line and other London routes. A new station, the size of Waterloo, will bring these together and catalyse regeneration in the area.

In June 2013 Mayor of London Boris Johnson set out a 30-year vision to transform the Old Oak Common area into a thriving new district with more than 24,000 new homes and 55,000 jobs.

It is this change that promoted Cargaint to start the process of preparing development proposals for its land and in April 2015 a Mayoral Development Corporation was set up to coordinate the planning and delivery of this new part of London.

The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) includes representation from each of the three Boroughs around it – Hammersmith & Fulham, Brent & Ealing – and will be the planning authority that considers the Outline Planning Application that is being prepared for Old Oak Park, as well as future detailed planning submissions.


The OPDC last year published its first policy document – the Opportunity Area Planning Framework for Old Oak Common – and launched its draft Local Plan for consultation in February 2016.

Our development team has been working closely with officers from the OPDC and the three Boroughs and the information being displayed here has been prepared by Cargiant and London + Regional Properties and is a separate from the consultations being run by the OPDC on their planning policy documents.
