QPR are to launch consultation on their plans to regenerate hundreds of acres of brownfield land at Old Oak in north-west London, opening the way for thousands of new homes and jobs to be delivered with easy access to the planned Crossrail/HS2 interchange.

Fifty thousand newsletters will be delivered to homes and businesses in the local area, inviting people to come and see the initial plans and have their say on what should be considered before further development.

Old Oak is set to change dramatically over the coming years.

Last year the Mayor of London, in partnership with the local boroughs, published a vision document describing how the area could be transformed with new transport connections, businesses and jobs, homes, community facilities, as well as a new 40,000-seater stadium.

QPR will be holding public exhibitions at their current Loftus Road Stadium on South Africa Road in W12 from 2pm to 8pm on Monday September 15 and Tuesday, September 16.

The Skyline suite in the Holiday Inn London West, at 4 Portal Way in North Acton, will host the plans from 4-8pm on Wednesday September 17 and Thursday 18.

St Mark’s Church Hall on Bathurst Gardens in Kensal Rise will display the exhibition from noon to 4pm on Friday September 19 and from 9am to 1pm on Saturday September 20.
