The largest regeneration project in the UK

July 2018

Spread across 650 hectares in the London Boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Ealing, and Brent, The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) is the largest regeneration project in the UK. Over the next 30 to 40 years the OPDC plans to develop and oversee 25,500 new homes, 65,000 new jobs, the new HS2 and Crossrail station, new Overground stations and new open space around the Grand Union Canal.

A 2016 review by the Mayor showed the need to review OPDC governance and board membership as “the Board is dominated to its detriment by public servants talking to each other.”  The London Assembly recently held a question and answer session on the OPDC tomorrow. Topics for discussion included an update since the September 2017 Plenary; the tenure split of ‘affordable homes’, and maximising the OPDC’s benefit to London.
