Queens Park Rangers were last night given the green light to build 605 new homes in west London.

The Championship football club hopes the £175 million development project for Old Oak Common is the first step towards building a new stadium on the site.

The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation — set up to lead the regeneration of Old Oak — gave the club and its development partner Genesis Housing Association the go-ahead for “Oaklands” at a City Hall meeting.

They are being advised by Stadium Capital Developments, the firm behind the Emirates Stadium regeneration for Arsenal FC.
