Having previously been awarded £250m by the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund for Old Oak and Park Royal and subsequently having to turn down the funding, how would you avoid the same thing happening again with any CSR funding?

OPDC is working to submit modifications to its draft Local Plan that will demonstrate that its full London Plan housing targets can be delivered, using a new approach to priority sites, largely to the west and north of the new HS2 interchange at Old Oak Common. This new approach should lead to a firm planning policy foundation for any future bid for infrastructure funding. This will avoid the difficulties associated with our previous bid for Housing Infrastructure Funding which proved impossible to fulfil because of rapid changes to local industrial land values.
