West London is an area with significant development opportunities to create more thriving, connected and sustainable places for communities – if they can be delivered successfully. WSP, London First and West London Alliance have come together to set out how West London can reach its full regeneration potential.

This report shows how business and local authorities can work together to unlock delivery of much-needed housing in the capital. Good transport connectivity is critical to success and the West London Orbital is a fantastic example of a truly transformative regeneration scheme.
Jasmine Whitbread Chief Executive, London First
There is an ambitious pipeline of projects which will support West London’s future growth, and our identified success factors could support the delivery of significant developments which will provide housing, jobs and social infrastructure, including the potentially transformative West London Orbital.
Ian Liddell Managing Director, Planning & Advisory
WSP’s and London First’s study is a timely call to action for public and private sector leaders to continue to raise our game – focussing on critical success factors from attracting patient capital to ensuring land ownership issues are resolvable. This will ultimately ensure West London’s wealth of opportunity is realised in a timely manner and the benefits maximised for all.
Andrew Dakers Chief Executive, West London Business
