Green Light for Building Construction Work in South London

Planning permission has been granted to develop a 111,000 sq.ft. extension to a shopping complex in South London, the Construction Enquirer reported today.

The joint venture between British Land and Tesco is also going to refurbish an existing 309,000 sq. ft. shopping centre at Canada Water, Rotherhithe Peninsula. The renovation, which is part of the £30 million investment plan for the area, will improve existing facilities and is expected to create new jobs.

The Construction Enquirer reported that improvements worth up to £4 million will be carried out around the centre. These are expected to improve connexions between Surrey Quays station and Canada Water tube and bus station, it was revealed.

Retail Development Manager at British Land, David Pollock, welcomed the extension of the shopping centre and emphasised the importance of the wider regeneration plan for area of Surrey Quays.

Mr Pollock said: “The extension and refurbishment will create additional space that will allow us to attract and accommodate new and exciting retailers, ensuring that Surrey Quays remains competitive in today’s market.”

Mr Pollock commented that the shopping experience in the area will be significantly improved for both existing and new customers

Construction work will start in spring 2013 and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2014.
