8 June 2015

Cargiant and London & Regional Properties will launch a public consultation on 8 June on their emerging plans for a new piece of London at Old Oak Park – the largest privately held site in the Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration area.

  • Old Oak Park is the largest privately owned site in the Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration area, the most important development in London in a generation
  • Public exhibitions on the early plans will open on 8 June and run for three weeks at four different venues around the West London site
  • Cargiant is uniquely placed to build on growing momentum and deliver the Mayor’s vision for Old Oak and Park Royal
  • Old Oak Park will deliver thousands of homes and jobs for Londoners, as well as an exceptional place that will deliver a new community for all of West London

Cargiant and London & Regional Properties will launch a public consultation on 8 June on their emerging plans for a new piece of London at Old Oak Park – the largest privately held site in the Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration area.

The Old Oak Park site benefits from over 1km of canal and what will be the best transport connections in London. The site provides a real opportunity to create thousands of new homes and jobs for Londoners and an exceptional place to live, work and visit.

Old Oak Park is the current home of Cargiant, the world’s largest car dealership. The 46 acre site is central to creating connections across the wider area and to unlocking the transformation of Old Oak Common, the most important development in London in a generation.

Tony Mendes, Managing Director of Cargiant said:

'Cargiant has been based at the heart of Old Oak Common since 1985, we are an important piece of the west London community and I’m delighted that we are launching our initial consultation in various communities and venues around the area, to hear what local people think about our early vision for the Old Oak Park Masterplan.

'We have over a kilometer of canal and what will be the best transport connections in London at Old Oak Park. There is an opportunity to create something truly special at Old Oak Park and we feel passionately that this must not be a place just for new residents, but a new community for all of West London and now we want your views'


The launch of this first stage of public consultation follows a significant amount of work in the first half of this year, on understanding the infrastructure challenges of the site and building strong working relationships with the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation and the London Boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Brent and Ealing.

Geoff Springer, Director at Cargiant’s Development Partner, London & Regional Properties, said:

'We are excited about the opportunity to present our early proposals for this fantastic 46 acre site and to speak to local people about what’s important to them and how Old Oak Park can help deliver towards that.'

'Our vision is driven by four key principles; Firstly to deliver homes for Londoners helping meet the Mayor’s target of 24,000 homes in the regeneration area. Secondly to create jobs, around 8,000, and help local people access those jobs. Thirdly to deliver an exceptional place, people want to live where there are good schools, great parks and job opportunities nearby. Where it is easy to get to and move around. And where there are interesting things to do both in the day and in the evening. Key to delivering this will be unlocking the canal and connections into the local areas. And finally to ensure that local people genuinely benefit from this regeneration.'

The Old Oak Park team has sent invites to over 50,000 households in the local area about their public exhibition events which will be held at Cargiant, Linford Christie Stadium at Wormwood Scrubs, North Acton and Harlesden Methodist Church. Further information on the exhibition dates and venues can be found at the website, where the exhibition material will also be published on 8 June.

At public exhibition events the Old Oak Park team will explain their vision for the area and how they intend to create an exceptional place to live, work and visit. They will also be on hand to answer any questions and receive feedback on these early plans.

The feedback from the consultation will be collected and will help inform the evolving Masterplan over the coming months. The Old Oak Park team intend to hold a further consultation on these more detailed plans after the Summer break.
