PEOPLE living and working in Old Oak Common and Park Royal are invited to a series of activities to help shape the future of Old Oak West.

Last June, the Development Corporation (OPDC) set out a vision for the area for the next 20 years.

Central to this will be a district called Old Oak West, an area stretching from Willesden Junction Station and North Acton with thousands of new and affordable homes and jobs focused on the new High Speed 2 interchange at Old Oak Common station.

OPDC will be holding a series of listening workshops throughout March. Feedback will be published in an ideas book that reflects the community’s aspirations for the area. You can take part in the following events:

  • Reimagining Old Oak West: Saturday, March 18, 10am-1pm Woodward Buildings, Victoria Road, North Acton. How can Old Oak West reflect the local identity? What are the priorities for a new district in London and what should a town centre look like?
  • Greening Old Oak West: Thursday, March 23, 6.30-8.30pm The Lab Community Centre, Oaklands Rise, 19 Green Street, London NW10. From new parks to canal towpaths, Old Oak is full of potential to bring nature closer to our everyday lives and to encourage a more active and healthier lifestyle. How can this be achieved?
  • Futureproofing Old Oak West: Saturday, March 25, 10am-1pm  The Collective Old Oak, Nash House, Old Oak Lane. What does the area need to ensure existing and new communities can thrive together? What types of workspace and community facilities will the local area need?
