Old Oak - Mayor's Development Corporation

Closed 24 Sep 2014

Opened 18 Jun 2014

Overview

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson has recently outlined proposals to transform Old Oak and Park Royal into a thriving new district with up to 24,000 new homes and more than 55,000 jobs. As part of this long term plan, the Mayor intends to create a new Mayoral Development Corporation (MDC) to unlock the enormous regeneration potential of this 950 hectares of industrial land at Old Oak Common and Park Royal in West London.

A new Corporation for Old Oak and Park Royal would take the lead on the planning and regeneration of this strategically important London location. The purpose of the Corporation would be to:

“Deliver the physical, social, economic and environmental regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal. To secure maximum benefits from the newly planned transport improvements. To plan for the transformational change at Old Oak and at the same time work to protect and regenerate the industrial areas of Park Royal. A central objective of the Corporation would be to secure high-quality sustainable development and investment for the benefit of the area and the communities that surround it.”

Why We Are Consulting

This public consultation is asking Londoners for their views on issues such as the proposed boundary of the Corporation (please refer to the map below), its potential powers and whether or not the Corporation is the most effective way to deliver this scale of regeneration at Old Oak and Park Royal.

The Mayor would like to hear your views on his proposal and whether or not he should give the Corporation powers relating to planning and the ability to grant business rate relief for non-domestic rate payers with the boundary of the MDC.

The links below provide further detail on the Mayor’s consultation proposal and explain how this new Corporation would operate, what powers it would have, its boundary and the role of a relevant London boroughs if the Corporation is established.

Following this consultation the Mayor will consider all responses received and will make a decision on how best to proceed. Should the Mayor decide to proceed with setting up this new Corporation he is required to have a further consultation with the London Assembly and following that to notify the Secretary of State. It is the Mayors intention for this Corporation to start on 1 April 2015. The Mayor anticipates being able to rely on this consultation to satisfy the Acts requirements.
