Meet the OPDC!


 

 

Old Oak and Park Royal in west London is home to the UK’s largest regeneration scheme. 

 

Capitalising on HS2 and Crossrail investment, the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation aims to fulfil the Mayor’s vision and will work with partners including the London Boroughs of Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham, HS2, TfL, Crossrail and many others, to create world class homes and an exemplar new sustainable neighbourhood. A place where thriving communities can live, work and enjoy, and a destination to drive economic growth. This exciting and ground-breaking project aims to create more than 25,500 new homes and 65,000 jobs. That’s around 14 per cent of London’s employment needs up to 2031. The development of the area will boost the UK economy by an estimated £7 billion per year.

OPDC is the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation, which has been set up by the Mayor to oversee this 30-40 year regeneration programme.
