      We are consulting on the Canada Water Area Action Plan (AAP). The AAP is a document that will ensure real change within the Canada Water area over the next 15 years. It aims to create a genuine town centre which is distinctive and reflects the area's heritage, an area which is renowned for its great open spaces and leisure facilities and a place with great schools and homes which are attractive to families. The plan area is focussed on the area where change will be the greatest. This core area includes the Surrey Quays shopping centre, Albion Street and the Hawkstone estate. To ensure that the impacts of development in the core area are addressed, the wider AAP area also includes Russia Dock Woodland, Greenland Dock, South Dock Marina and St Mary's Church and the surrounding conservation area.

      When it is finally adopted by the council, it will be part of our Local Development Framework (LDF) and will be used to make planning decisions in the area as well as guide investment.

      How to comment on the Area Action Plan

      We are now at the second stage of consulting on the Area Action Plan. We have taken the comments we received at the first stage into consideration and produced the Preferred Options which sets out our preferred approach to growth within the area.
