Old Oak ‘could provide 40,000 jobs’

New research from Colin Buchanan and Partners reveals that 40,000 new jobs will be created by the Old Oak regeneration plans, and just three days before the Department for Transport consultation ends.

Cllr Mark Loveday, H&F Council Cabinet Member for Strategy, said “We’ve been working with world renowned architect Sir Terry Farrell to create a vision for Old Oak. Old Oak is at the centre of an unrivalled convergence of railway lines and the High Speed Rail interchange would be able to link these to create a national rail hub.

“Regeneration plans would not only create the projected 40,000 jobs in the immediate vicinity, but also contribute 10,000 new homes, which given that Old Oak is currently in the bottom fifth of the most deprived areas in Britain, is just what this long-neglected part of the London needs.”
