The convergence of HS2 and Crossrail on a core area larger than Canary Wharf, Old Oak Common offers a unique and exciting opportunity to build a new piece of city on the edge of central London. But is the Mayor’s vision the best we can do?
At this morning’s meeting the Planning Committee, which I chair, will be examining Mayor Boris Johnson’s plans to use a Mayoral Development Corporation to take over statutory powers relating to infrastructure, regeneration, land acquisitions and planning from the London boroughs of Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham.
The following Greater London Authority staff will give a presentation on the current London Plan policy for Old Oak and Park Royal and the Mayor’s MDC proposal.
Stewart Murray, Assistant Director – Planning
Colin Wilson, Senior Manager – Planning Decisions
Martin Scholar, Strategic Planning Manager – Planning Frameworks
Michael Mulhern, Principal Project Officer – Regeneration
The Committee will question the following guests about the future of Old Oak and Park Royal.
Pat Hayes, Executive Director Regeneration and Housing, LB Ealing
Amanda Souter, Chair of Wells House Road Residents Association
Mike Cummings, Regional Director, SEGRO
The meeting will take place on Tuesday, 1 July from 10.00am in The Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1). You can also watch proceedings live from here.
