Introduction of Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC)

by on March 18, 2015

The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) will come into force on 1 April.

OPDC has been championed by the Mayor of London as the body that will drive the regeneration of 900 hectares of industrial land in west London.

On 1 April OPDC will take on planning powers for the area including the power to determine planning applications, prepare planning policy and prepare and collect CIL. In addition, OPDC will have the ability to use Compulsory Purchase Order powers to secure regeneration.

Old Oak and Park Royal DC sits across the boundaries of three London Boroughs – Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham, and will be established as a new local planning authority (LPA) on the Planning Portal to facilitate its introduction.

This means that with effect from 1 April 2015, any applications created on the Planning Portal within the new DC boundary will be submitted to the new authority.

More information about OPDC is available on the GLA website.
