Answered By: 
The Mayor

Canada Water was previously an Intensification Area. Its redesignation as an Opportunity Area is to reflect the significant amount of development that has taken place there in recent years and to plan strategically for its continued growth.  As well as new residential and retail development, there is also the potential to develop a new science cluster by Kings College.
