Canada Water Masterplan, London Borough of Southwark, London, SE16

Herbert Smith Freehills LLP


Canada Water was one of the largest planning permissions granted in the UK in 2020.

We helped British Land secure a flexible permission supported by a 600+ page planning agreement that will deliver huge local community benefits.

Permission was granted at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. We had to pivot quickly to the challenges of virtual working to avoid delays to the project, which frequently required our team to go the 'extra mile'.

Defeating a judicial review without a full hearing demonstrates our ability to manage risks and deliver exceptional outcomes for our clients on their most ambitious projects.
