Old Oak Common and Park Royal

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.
