Old Oak Common, the ‘Canary Wharf of the West’, will become one of the best-connected places in the UK when HS2 and Crossrail arrive in 2026, and is set to deliver 24,000 new homes and 55,000 jobs for London.

This NLA full-day On Location event focussed on the development opportunities and investment and planning strategies around Old Oak Common and Park Royal, as well as Earls Court and White City - also major development opportunities in West London - and will mark the launch of the Old Oak Common OAPF and Mayoral Development Corporation. 
A morning conference hosted on the Imperial West campus heard from key public and private sector stakeholders for these three key areas of West London, and was followed by a networking lunch and afternoon site visits to these major areas of regeneration.
