Canada Water

The exciting Canada Water regeneration programme is delivering a vibrant new town centre for Rotherhithe.

We're providing a mix of high quality homes, community facilities, employment, shops and a new public realm.

This is a unique opportunity to transform a historic London docklands location into a distinctive, new waterside town centre. So far we've delivered:

  • 900 homes, of which 236 are affordable
  • a state of the art library with over 40,000 books, learning spaces, meeting rooms and a theatre
  • a new plaza designed to accommodate a street market and other events

We've been working closely with local community to understand their aspiration for Canada Water.

Our shared vision is to ultimately deliver at least 4,500 new homes, 35,000sqm of additional retail spaces and generate around 2000 new jobs.

You can find further details of our shared vision and how it'll be delivered in the Canada Water Area Action Plan (CWAAP) (PDF, 2.5mb).
