Oaklands Regeneration  Old Oak Common Lane

Benefits

Leading on affordability

The Oaklands project is one of the new Mayor’s flagship developments in reaching his affordable housing goals.

The scheme will deliver over 600 new homes to an area that desperately needs them, 40% of which are going to be genuinely affordable.

A Creative Centre

Extensively landscaped public areas will provide an attractive and dynamic environment for the development along with communal space for the new residents.

Business spaces will provide hundreds of new jobs in an effervescent new entrepreneurial community facilitated by a creative hub, which will feature a selection of new shops, restaurants and cafés.

London’s most connected new community

Old Oak will be one of London’s and one of the UK’s most well-connected areas.

It is scheduled to be one of Europe’s biggest transport hubs by 2026, not only because of the interchange between Crossrail and HS2 but other major Overground services in the capital.

The first site to come forward

The land, accessible off Old Oak Common Lane, is currently vacant and has been unoccupied for 10 years.

It was previously used for commercial office space and a hostel.

The plans will rejuvenate the dilapidated and unfamiliar area into a vibrant new neighbourhood and community for people to live, work and play.

Canal living

London is known for its beautiful canal walks and vibrant urban activities that follow the waterway. Residents will be able to experience and enjoy the canal lifestyle within their own neighbourhood.

The Oaklands development will help bring new life to the spaces along the Grand Union Canal which are rarely visited and under-utilised.
