A summary of the third phase of public consultation on the emerging illustrative masterplan for Old Oak Park, the current home of Cargiant, has been published by the development team, showing a positive reaction to the plans.
The developers – London & Regional working with site owner Cargiant – describe it as “an incredibly positive response”.
The illustrative masterplan for the 46-acre site contains almost 50 individual buildings, 14 bridges and viaducts, over a kilometre of Canal, 20-acres of open space, and a new cultural quarter.
The consultation has been running since January 2016. This followed the first consultation introducing the site in December 2014, and then a second round of consultation on the four key priorities and approach to Old Oak Park in June and July 2015.
The partners say that their proposals and illustrative masterplan have received an “overwhelmingly positive response”, but say it has also highlighted a number of areas and ideas that local people “would like them to consider further”, such as retaining some of the Rolls Royce Building and bringing the canal in to the site rather than keeping it at the edge.
There will be another, final round of public consultation before an outline planning application is submitted to the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) later in 2016.
