- Old Oak decision making process reaches another important milestone
- QPR fans asked to show support for new stadium to #KeepWestLondonRs
- New stadium vital to QPR’s long term sustainability
The Mayor of London has launched the next phase of consultation on Old Oak, where QPR hope to build a new stadium, issuing a document known as the ‘Local Plan’ – the rules by which all planning applications are decided. The document is only a draft and calls on people, particularly West London residents, to comment so they can help shape the plans for their area.
The draft Local Plan calls for small to large-scale ‘catalysts’ that could act as a focus of early development, which could include ‘culture, sport, leisure uses, education and health institutions.’
QPR have a plan to deliver a new QPR stadium, with educational, sporting and community facilities to benefit people in the area. The club shares the Mayor’s vision for Old Oak to become a vibrant place where people live, work and play, and return to time and time again.
A new multifunctional stadium – a sports and entertainment hub that is used all year round – would drive the timescale to support the early delivery of homes, and the restaurants, shops and bars within it would bring jobs and opportunities to the area. It would also provide a proper base for the QPR in the Community Trust, allowing it to increase its highly regarded community outreach activity.
