Planning Permission Granted for Canada Water Eastern Dock Edge
Part of a larger redevelopment of Canada Water in London’s Docklands, Southwark Council have approved the plans to transform Canada Water’s eastern dock edge. Features include two deck levels with accessible stairs encouraging people to explore the entire north-south promenade, a terraced amphitheatre, a young anglers’ area and small seating pockets, floating islands with shrubs as well as the refurbishment and reprovision of fishing pontoons for use by the angling society. We have worked hard to increase the biodiversity in the area while taking care to source plants from local provenance.
The reinvigorated eastern dock edge forms part of the wider regeneration of the public realm to make it into a place where people can connect with nature, enjoy being close to the water, and come together as a community.
We are working together with Art-Invest on this project.
“We are extremely excited about this new public realm which marries so many of the key aspects which define our practice. People, ecology and biodiversity are at the heart of everything in this special waterside scheme.”
