What future for Old Oak?

We meet via Zoom on the first Tuesday of each month, at 6.30pm.  Please email to oonforum@gmail.com to join our mailing/membership list.   Our next Zoom session will be on 6th February 2024.  PDFs of the slides used at our meetings can be downloaded from this page on this website.

You are welcome to join the Forum if you live or work in (or near) the area of north-west London for which the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation has been the local planning authority since 2015.  Membership of the Forum is free and open to all. 

The OPDC Planning Committee next meets on 22nd February .  This session will be closely followed by a OPDC Board meeting on February 28th (re-arranged from January 25th).   These two meetings are due to complete the process of adopting the Draft Old Oak West Supplementary Planning Document.

We have been waiting many months to hear the outcome of Government’s assessment of the OPDC’s Outline Business Case.   This decision is critical to OPDC’s future plans.  The business case (a doument which remains confidential) sets out the Corporation’s arguments for significant infrastructure funding at Old Oak West and for OPDC to take the lead role as ‘delivery agency’ in the next phase of regeneration of the OPDC area.

Postponement of the Board meeting from January to late February may provide a clue on the timing of this Government decision.
