Oaklands to be first OPDC planning decision

oaklandsThe OPDC Planning Committee meeting will determine the planning application for the Oaklands development on 13th July 2016.

It will be the first such decision by the OPDC since it formally came in to being.

Oaklands is a 600 home development being proposed by housing association Genesis, working with Queens Park Rangers. At the same meeting, there will be an update on the outcome of the Local Plan public consultation.

Genesis’ plans would provide over 600 new homes, including over 200 affordable ones. It is understood that the affordable content has been negotiated up by OPDC to around 40% from a proposed level of around 30%.

The scheme would also provide over 3,000 sq m of office and commercial space at ground level to provide space mainly for small and local businesses. An estimated 100 jobs could be accommodated within these units.

The scheme also porposes lanscaping and public areas, and the start of a new link road from Old Oak Common Lane into the site. As neighbouring sites are developed, this road could be extended into the heart of the new Old Oak Common regeneration area.

QPR have acquired strategic land interests throughout the Old Oak regeneration area as part of their plan for a new stadium on land next to the new Old Oak station.
