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.
Thank you to everybody who came to the Developed Masterplan and First Detailed Plots exhibition in January.
We had around 1600 people through the doors and another 500 at outreach events, with really helpful discussions and feedback.
Feedback is currently being analysed and will be incorporated into of the Statement of Community Involvement. This is a public document that will be issued alongside the planning application, which is anticipated to be submitted this spring.
Please join us at a Topic Session in March to discuss how we can ensure that the physical changes brought about by the Canada Water Masterplan go hand in hand with long term social, economic and health benefits for those who live, work or spend time in the Canada Water area. We are developing a Canada Water Charter which will set out how we will work, together with the council, community and stakeholders to do this. The charter so far has been informed by ongoing work and many years of local input and discussion and we would like your input in developing this further.
Community input and insight sits at the heart of the charter. As part of this first stage to help us better understand local social and economic conditions, research has been undertaken by Social Life, a Southwark-based social enterprise company. Their findings will be shared during the session.
We’ll also be holding local pop-up events ahead of the Topic Session where British Land will be on hand to discuss your thoughts on the priorities and ideas so far. Please find full details below.

Community consultation started in Spring 2014. We’ve held over 40 events to date and over 3,000 people have been involved. We will work together with the community up to and beyond submitting a planning application, continuing to involve the community in the development of the masterplan.
