This website will be kept temporarily active to provide a record of the successful partnership and work between BL Canada Quays, the London Borough of Southwark, and the local community of Rotherhithe.
The original British Land Canada Quays partnership at Canada Water has now dispersed following the successful delivery of the area formally known as Sites A and B. This has delivered 900 new homes including 234 affordable, a new civic heart with the creation of the Canada Water Library and Plaza, and the creation of new spaces and accessible routes.
The final phase of residential housing on Site A continues to be built by Barratt Homes scheduled for completion by 2014. Canada Quays Ltd is continuing in partnership with Southwark Council to deliver in the area. British Land as joint owners of Surrey Quays Shopping Centre is bringing forward plans to refurbish and extend the shopping centre.
As part of the Canada Water regeneration programme we are working with local education providers to engage pupils and teachers, aiming to work with them to raise aspirations, and create a greater understanding of the Canada Water development, its history and future, and its potential impact on local people.
This exciting new development will bring new homes, retail and office space to the area, with a library and the creation of a new civic plaza at the heart of Canada Water. Local school children have already played a part in the project by participating in consultation and design workshops in the early stages; they remain keen to learn more. We have commenced a series of projects that are fun and educational to inspire local school children. These projects will be profiled on this website in an area developed with them.
