Southwark Council has agreed a strategic plan to regenerate the area around Canada Water.
The Canada Water Area Action, which sets out a vision for development in the area up to 2026, was adopted at the end of March. It aims to link new homes, a plaza, library and shops with public realm and transport improvements, as well as encouraging retail growth.
Fiona Colley, council cabinet member for regeneration, said: "This latest step sets in stone the council’s commitment to make Canada Water a destination for those seeking high-quality, affordable housing with impressive local facilities nearby, such as a brand-new super-library.”
An art gallery dedicated to science has launched its first exhibition after opening in September.
