Get Involved in our Consultation

The consultation process is facilitated by Soundings and will involve the community at each stage of design development to help inform the proposals. From agreeing local priorities and masterplan principles at the start; right through to fine-tuning the masterplan before it is submitted for planning and making the Statutory Consultation locally accessible.

Please contact us if you have any questions or to register your interest in Canada Water Masterplan project updates.

Recent events & next steps

Over the last few months, the masterplan team has been developing the more detailed aspects of the masterplan and working on a number of strategies to inform a resilient masterplan; looking at its long-term economic and social legacy, youth engagement and continuing to work with the Greater London Authority, Transport for London, Southwark Council and other developers operating in the area to explore the transport solutions needed to unlock the Canada Water Opportunity Area and Housing Zone.

We’ve held a number of community consultation activities, working with local groups to gather more input to inform proposals for the uses, activities and design and inclusivity of the public streets and spaces. This has included Topic Discussion sessions in July, a case-study site visit to King’s Cross, a youth engagement ideas workshop, meetings with local residents and a special event for young people – Urban Exchange. Thank you to everyone who attended the consultation events, taking the time to share your ideas, to help inform the more detailed designs.

We’ve also met with local Tenants and Residents’ Associations to update them on our plans, discuss any questions they may have, gain a better understanding of their estates and discuss ways we can work together to maximise the benefits from the masterplan for existing communities. At the beginning of November, we meet with Silverlock Hall TRA and Osprey Estate TRA and we are keen to meet with more before the end of the year.
