Permission to develop new homes and retail at Canada Water approved

Southwark Council has granted planning permission to develop new homes, retail and green space as part of the Canada Water Masterplan, enabling the creation of two zones of the development, which will provide new affordable homes, helping to meet local housing need, alongside new public spaces, play areas, shops and cafés.  

Zone G, located off Redriff Road and across a portion of the Surrey Quays Leisure Park, will deliver a brand-new Tesco Extra supermarket, including a large new Tesco café and below-ground public town centre car park.

There will be five residential buildings situated above this, with some smaller flexible retail space at ground level. In total Zone G will provide 384 new homes with a 42% affordable provision (by habitable room). The proposals also include a large new residents’ podium garden and play space.

Phil Tait, Director of Development for Canada Water at British Land, said: “The vision for Canada Water is to deliver a new town centre, connected with the local community; a place where everyone living, working, and studying in the local area truly belongs and can access the opportunities that it will bring, sharing in its success. Zone G and the park will bring new green space for all to enjoy, along with homes, shops, cafés and public amenities that will all add to what Canada Water has to offer.”  

The new park will be located across a portion of Surrey Quays Leisure Park and part of the car park of the former Printworks building. 

British Land also remain in regular discussions with cinema operators to establish the ability to deliver an appropriate facility within the Masterplan.
