Brent submits response to Old Oak and Park Royal consultation

Brent Council has submitted its response to the Old Oak and Park Royal Opportunity Area Planning Framework consultation.

The council say they have made “a number of suggestions to ensure that local residents and businesses benefit fully from the regeneration”.

The formal response sent from Brent Council to Boris Johnson requests that the Planning Framework document should show more detail about how the businesses at Park Royal will benefit, the impact on the wider road network, the amount of retail provided, design quality and securing adequate social infrastructure such as school places.

The response also highlighted that Brent believe there is a need for a “full range of genuinely affordable housing to help meet local housing needs and more green space to be provided in the development”.

Andy Donald, Strategic Director of Regeneration and Growth at Brent Council said: “Brent Council is fully supportive of the regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal and we are working with the Mayor to ensure that the redevelopment sets the standard for future development in London.

“Our main priority is to make sure that local residents and businesses benefit fully. At this stage we are want to see more work undertaken with regards to the impact on existing Park Royal and Harlesden communities as well as more detail on design and infrastructure provision.”
