Between Spring 2014 and Spring 2018, Soundings carried out four years of community consultation to inform the proposals for the Canada Water Masterplan. We held over 120 public consultation and local outreach events, with a total attendance of over 11,000, people. We would like to thank everybody who has contributed their valuable time and ideas to the discussions so far.
In May 2018 we submitted a hybrid planning application for the Canada Water Masterplan to Southwark Council. Following a period of statutory consultation, we submitted amendments to the planning application in October 2018, to reflect discussions with Southwark Council and to take on board feedback received from local residents, community groups and other interested parties. Further minor changes were submitted in March 2019 following further detailed design work by the project team.
You can find out more about the background to the project here.
You can make a comment on the planning application by visiting the Council’s website https://planning.southwark.gov.uk/online-applications/ and entering ‘18/AP/1604’ and selecting ‘make a comment’. Southwark Council has a duty to consider all comments relating to material planning issues.
All planning documents are available on Southwark Council’s online planning register and can also be viewed at Canada Water Library.
Here’s how you can submit your comments:
Online: Directly on the Canada Water Masterplan planning application.
By Email: Via the form on Southwark Council’s website.
By Post: Send your comments by post to 5th Floor Hub 2, Southwark Council, PO Box 64529, London, SE1P 5LX.
Information regarding the planning application documents and how to make formal comments to Southwark Council can be found here.
As the project progresses, and should planning permission be consented, there will be other forms of communication and discussion. There will be engagement on the detailed designs of future buildings as they come forward, and we will continue to work with the local community to discuss key themes, community involvement and more. Further details of planned ongoing engagement will be available on our website and through future project updates.
During the planning determination period British Land continues to meet with statutory bodies including Southwark Council, the Greater London Authority and Transport for London during the determination period to discuss key areas of the Masterplan and we will provide updates on these.
Please do get in touch with the team if you have any questions about the plans or would like to discuss anything in further detail.
Community consultation started in Spring 2014, and between then and spring 2018 we held over 110 public consultation and local outreach events, with a total attendance of more than 10,000 We’re committed to maintaining local involvement in the long term and community engagement will continue through the planning application period and beyond.
