Old Oak regeneration plans set to be decided

The London Assembly is set to decide this afternoon whether Boris Johnson's plans to regenerate Old Oak and Park Royal should get the go ahead.

The Mayor of London has put forward proposals to transform the area in west London into what he says will be a thriving new district with around 20,000 new homes and more than 55,000 jobs.

The plans include the introduction of HS2, Crossrail and the London Overground. Queens Park Rangers have also set their sights on making the area their new home.

But campaigners worry that the needs of developers will be put before residents.

Stewart Dalby from The Friends of The Scrubs explained more to Headline London.
