Queens Park Rangers football club has begun a consultation on its plans for a new 40,000-seat stadium.

The west London Premier League club said the development at Old Oak Common in north-west London, would create 55,000 jobs and 24,000 homes.

The stadium will be part of a regeneration of the area, which is provisionally called New Queens Park.

The venue would replace the club's current Loftus Road ground in Shepherd's Bush.

The redevelopment also include plans for a station to connect to the Crossrail link and the London to Birmingham HS2 rail link.

QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes said: "We are looking to deliver much more than just a stadium.

"We want to create a new destination that we propose to call New Queens Park.

"It will serve as a catalyst for regeneration, creating thousands of new jobs and homes for local people."

A website for the project has been created for people to read about the plans and to have their say.

The consultation will run until 17 October.
