Asda has not yet submitted its proposals for planning permission

Asda has revealed plans to create a “town centre” in north-west London, including 1,500 homes.

The proposals, which have not yet been submitted for planning permission, include a giant flagship superstore on its 10-acre Park Royal site, near Acton, replacing the current store.

The company said about 500 of those homes would be provided as affordable.

Asda said many apartments in the development would “utilise a landscaped podium” over the superstore.

Computer generated imagery of the proposals show a series of high-rise tower blocks on top of the redeveloped shop.

In 2015, the area was identified as a prime location to undergo the largest regeneration project since the London 2012 Olympic Games.

It would be the first time Asda has undertaken a mixed-use redevelopment of an established store.

The supermarket chain said if it goes ahead, it could be one of the largest land deals of the last couple of years – although the corporation did not disclose any specific figures.

A planning application would be submitted later this year, an Asda spokesperson said.

The plans will be decided by the department for regional development in London, the The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) which was set up by mayor’s office in 2015 to oversee the regeneration of Old Oak Common and the HS2 and Elizabeth line connections.
