Oaklands - Old Oak Common
Last updated - 11 April 2018
Old Oak and Park Royal in west London is home to the UK’s largest regeneration scheme.
The second Mayoral Development Corporation has been created to oversee the development of 650 hectares of land which will see West London transformed in a way like that of the Olympic Park in East London. It is a major opportunity that will create over 25,500 new homes and 65,000 new jobs over the next 30-40 years.
We hope to be part of that and to remain a key part of the area in the future.
The Oaklands scheme will provide:
- 605 new homes, 242 (40%) of which will be affordable. This will be a combination of social rent housing, affordable rent and shared ownership.
- The remaining private rental homes will be one, two and three bedroom apartments that will suit different needs and budgets. All homes will remain in the ownership of QPR and Genesis.
- 3,000 m2 of office and commercial space to accommodate small and local businesses.
- A new nursery and health facility.
- Communal space for the new residents through extensively landscaped public areas to provide an attractive environment and setting for the development.
The site used to be a hostel and was not used for over ten years. This will change the area into a vibrant new neighbourhood. The scheme will mark the start of a new link road. The road will open much of the wider area to regeneration.
The scheme will be finished in 2020.
