Area action plans

Area Action Plans (AAPs) set out area-specific visions, planning policies and masterplans for our key regeneration areas. These are part of the council’s wider development plan and are used to make planning decisions on development proposals in the area.

Draft Old Kent Road Area Action Plan

The Mayor of London has designated the Old Kent Road as an Opportunity Area in the London Plan. We consulted on the first draft of the Old Kent Road Area Action Plan (AAP)/Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF) between June and November 2016. We consulted on a set of new and amended policies between June – September 2017. The final plan will help provide the planning framework for new development in the area including new homes, jobs, open space and infrastructure.

The council is currently preparing a ‘further preferred option’ draft of the Old Kent Road AAP. We are intending to launch a 12 week consultation in December 2017.

Canada Water Area Action Plan (2015)

The Canada Water Area Action Plan (pdf, 3.5mb) (CWAAP) provides a planning framework and planning policies for a new town centre master plan. The plan also has policies on employment sites, shops, housing, schools and community places and links to the surrounding communities. The AAP was adopted in 2012 and updated in 2015, following the Daily Mail’s decision to vacate their printworks site in the area.

British Land are currently in the process of preparing a new masterplan for the area.
