Construction works across the Canada Water development
The below plan provides more information about each work site location.
Minimising disruption during the construction process
We’re committed to managing the impact of construction works so that disruption to the local area is minimised.
Before construction work begins, a Construction Management Plan for the work site is agreed with Southwark Council. The plan outlines how our construction works will take place as well as what mitigations will be put in place to minimise the impact on the local community during the works. This includes site operating hours, noise and vibration mitigation measures, and traffic measurement. To download the Masterplan Framework Construction Management Plan please click here.
We also require all our contractors to be signed up to the Considerate Constructors Scheme, which is a not for profit independent organisation founded to raise standards in the construction industry. All constructors signed up to the scheme must make every effort to ensure their site teams care about the appearance of the site, respect the local community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety, and value their workforce.
Throughout the construction process we will also ensure that the local community has access to the latest information on the key works taking place across the Masterplan through regular meetings and updates, so that you can easily get in touch with the team with any questions or to raise any issues relating to the construction works.
Dedicated Construction Neighbourhood Liaison Manager
British Land has appointed a dedicated Construction Neighbourhood Liaison Manager to honour our commitment to minimise disruption for local residents, businesses and people who work and visit the area.
The Construction Neighbourhood Liaison Manager is working with all contractors on site, ensuring that neighbours are kept regularly updated and will respond promptly to any issues or questions that arise. If you have any questions about these works or would like to speak with the Construction Neighbourhood Liaison Manager, please get in touch with us.
Keeping you updated
Construction Liaison Forums
Since July 2021 we have held Construction Liaison Forums for near neighbours of Plots A1, A2 and K1. These Forums provide an opportunity to hear from our contractors on upcoming site activity via a presentation and ask any questions you may have. Details of past and future forums can be found below. All dates for future forums will be available on this webpage, once organised.
Upcoming Construction Liaison Forums
Plot K1 and surrounding area
Date: Tuesday 31 May 2022
Location: Canada Water Library (you’ll be directed to the room on arrival)
Please register your attendance in advance using our email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or freephone number (0800 470 4593). A Code of Conduct document will be available to view at the meeting. This has been produced to ensure clarity on what attendees can expect from those presenting/answering questions at the Construction Liaison Forums which includes contractors, the Construction Neighbour Liaison Manager appointed by British Land and members of the British Land team. It also sets out what we expect from attendees, so that we can continue to ensure our engagement is accessible and inclusive to all involved.

Since November 2021, Wates, who are building Plot A1, Mace, who are building Plot A2, and McAleer & Rushe, who are building Plot K1 have held construction drop-in sessions to provide an opportunity to speak with those who want further detail or have questions about the construction works in these locations.
Future drop-in dates will be advertised on this page and via our communications channels.
In addition to the above event(s), we also send regular updates as construction progresses via our e-newsletters, web updates, social media posts and site signage.
Neighbours living near locations where construction activity is taking place will receive regular newsletters and have regular opportunities to speak with the Construction Neighbourhood Liaison Manager and relevant contractor.
As part of our commitment to provide local employment opportunities during the construction period, there will be a number of roles from our contractors available to apply for. More information on the latest roles available and how to register your interest can be found on our Jobs and Training Opportunities page here.
We are very aware that due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are at home during the day when construction work generally takes place. Standard construction working hours as permitted by Southwark Council are:
Monday – Friday 8am-6pm
- Saturday – 8am-2pm (no noisy works before 9am)
Our contractors are using every measure possible to reduce noise impact from their sites and continue to use noise monitoring equipment to continuously monitor noise levels to ensure they are at an acceptable level, as permitted by Southwark Council. When necessary, excessively noisy works take place on a 2 hour on/off basis to minimise disruption. This generally relates to demolition works. However, this does not mean that there are 2-hour periods of inactivity in between.
In the event that working hours change, or as and when overnight works are required, we will update this web page.
