Our Public Consultations

We are pleased to have received high levels of engagement and positive responses throughout all of our stages of consultation, from our first round for the RMAs in July 2022 and second round in October 2022. In January 2023 we held our third consultation stage, with hosted three public events at Decathlon Surrey Quays where the local community were able to view our updated proposals for the RMAs and Canada Dock eastern dock edge and provide their input.

What is an Outline Application

The Outline Planning Application for Canada Water Dockside determined at Southwark’s planning committee in March 2022 was supported by a series of plans known as ‘Parameter Plans’, a Development Specification, and a Design Code: these set the future design standards and control what can and can’t be done, such as:

The range of uses

Areas which can be built upon

Areas protected for public space

Key routes and connections through the site

Maximum building heights

What is a Reserved Matters Application

Following the approval of the Outline Planning Application, further detail will be submitted as a series of ‘Reserved Matters’ applications.

Whereas outline planning applications approve the principle of development and set the guidelines and parameters, ‘reserved matters’ applications will provide details such as appearance, access, landscaping, layout, and design. The reserved matters application will be in line with the outline planning permission, and we will continue to seek feedback from residents on the next stages of the plans.
