The Canada Water Master Plan is about to change our area forever.

A pre-action protocol letter has been submitted to London Borough of Southwark as part of the process of setting in motion a Judicial Review of Canada Water Master Plan - 18-AP-1604.

Details of the grounds for the Judicial Review application and the costs can be found:

The Judicial Review is being driven by local residents and stakeholders group including representatives from Friends of Stave Hill, Friends of Russia Dock Woodlands, parents and school governors, and local residents/tenants groups. We encourage residents and visitors to look at the website

British Land submits planning application for the Canada Water Masterplan

British Land have submitted an outline planning application for the Canada Water Masterplan to Southwark Council which also includes a detailed planning application for the project’s first three buildings (A1, A2 and K1).

A1 - overflow car park near CW library 35 storey tower, 186 homes
A2 - petrol station leisure centre 5/6 storeys 
K1 - Roberts Close  / Russia Dock Woodland 186 homes , 5/6 storey

This follows over four years of community engagement on the Masterplan with more than 110 public consultation and local outreach events, with a total recorded attendance of over 10,000 people. The statutory consultation period is the opportunity to view all the planning documents, which will be available on Southwark Council’s online planning register. All representations on the planning application should then be directed to Southwark Council’s Planning Division via the online planning register for their consideration in their determination of the planning application.

See for all updates and the masterplan details on a PDF (very large file).

Here is the only place online where you will find the Planning Applications for Sites A&B, Design Code and the Arup Transport Assessment and EDCO Public Realm documents.

The community aspiration is for a "low, clean and green" waterside development, preserving and enhancing the attractions of Canada Water itself but also becoming a community focus. The community - through the Canada Water Campaign and the Forum - has been fighting hard to preserve the dock and to prevent overdevelopment whilst achieving the facilities that are badly needed.

A British Land/Canada Quays consortium was chosen as the preferred developer-led team to masterplan development at Canada Water following extensive public consultation. This followed Southwark Council's adoption of the Master Developer Brief and the Planning & Design Principles & Technical Appendices which the Canada Water Consultative Forum worked so hard on.
