London Assembly votes on the Mayor of London’s plans for west London
17th December 2014

Today London Assembly Members will question guests about the London Mayor’s proposal to designate a Mayoral Development Area covering Old Oak and Park Royal in West London.

Last year Boris Johnson, TfL and Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham Councils discussed developing Old Oak and received more than 600 responses.

The redevelopment plan is part of The Mayor of London’s Alterations to the London Plan 2014.  The proposal says Old Oak could accommodate 24,000 homes and 55,000 jobs. 

The Assembly are able to reject the Development Area if they have a two thirds majority of Members present and voting.  

The Assembly will formally consider if proposal should be passed at 1.30pm.

Tony Curzon Price, the Treasurer of Friends of Wormwood Scrubs, joined Wake Up London to discuss the matter and explain why some are opposed to the matter.
