Get Involved in our Consultation

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.

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


In May 2018 we submitted a hybrid planning application for the Canada Water Masterplan to Southwark Council. Following a period of statutory consultation, and having carefully reviewed Southwark Council’s comments, in October 2018 we submitted amendments to the planning application to Southwark Council.

In March 2019, we submitted additional minor changes to the Canada Water Masterplan planning application following further detailed design work by the project team. These have been received by Southwark Council, who are undertaking statutory consultation between 14 March and 3 April 2019.

You can find out more about the background to the project here.


Southwark Council has started 21-days statutory consultation period which is the opportunity to view all planning documents and make comments. Southwark Council’s statutory consultation period will last from 14 March to 3 April 2019. All formal comments on the resubmitted planning application should be directed to Southwark Council’s planning division via the online planning register.

Anybody can comment on a planning application and Southwark Council has a duty to consider all comments relating to material planning issues. Please ensure that all comments reference the case number 18/AP/1604.

How you can submit your comments:


By Email: Via the form on Southwark Council’s website here.

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.


Beyond the statutory consultation period, we will continue to work with the local community to discuss key themes, Reserved Matters, community involvement and more. British Land will also continue 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.
