Old Oak regeneration ‘requires everyone to work together’ say QPR

first_imgQPR have responded to claims their plans for a sporting and leisure hub at Old Oak have been dealt a serious blow by Cargiant.The club’s owners want to transform the land between Scrubs Lane and Willesden Junction into an area to be known as New Queens Park which would include a 40,000-capacity arena where Rangers would play.The car supermarket company owns 45 acres of the proposed site, is a major local employer and must be relocated for the proposed regeneration of the area to go ahead.Cargiant have been assessing possible sites to relocate their current operation to but also say they are working on their own plans to develop Old Oak and that their proposals do not include a stadium for QPR.Talks between Rangers and Cargiant ended some time ago with both parties believing there was no basis for a partnership.A QPR spokesman said: “The future regeneration of Old Oak requires everyone to work together for the common good – the boroughs, the Mayor, landowners and the local community.“Our current consultation has so far attracted the views of over 1,000 local residents with over 80% in support of our stadium-led regeneration.“The future of Old Oak lies in the regeneration of the entire area and not the uncoordinated and piecemeal development of individual land holdings.”QPR have invited people to give their views on the future regeneration of Old Oak through the club’s consultation: www.new-queens-park.co.ukSee also:Rangers say public supports Old Oak plansFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
