Old Oak Common, London
Client: Queens Park Rangers (QPR) and Genesis Housing Association
Date: Planning July 2016
The Oaklands Masterplan is part of the Old Oak and Park Royal Redevelopment strategic / zoning masterplan for the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC). The overall 500 ha masterplan site is a combination of many individual sites located on either side of the Paddington Branch (Grand Union Canal), and criss-crossed by railway lines. In 2015, CZWG were commissioned by Queens Park Rangers Football Club (QPR) to provide a detailed masterplan for 1.8 ha of the site, and in 2016 were granted planning consent by the OPDC. The £175 million mixed use regeneration project will deliver 605 new homes, 40 per cent of which will be Affordable. Genesis and QPR have agreed to work together to deliver the first major development in the regeneration area.
QPR have other strategic land interests in Old Oak and would like to build a new stadium as part of the wider development, providing a new home for the club.
“We are committed to the future regeneration of Old Oak and partnerships such as the one we have with QPR will enable us to invest, not only in building new homes, but in developing new communities.” —Neil Hadden, Genesis Housing Association Chief Executive
