The site is located in Deptford in the northern part of the LB Lewisham.
The area has historically been occupied by docks and canals supporting busy industrial activity. Most of these waterways have since been filled in and the area is now dominated by residential development with pockets of
industrial and employment uses.
There are three key development areas in the area. To the west spreads the New Bermondsey regeneration area, which proposes to rejuvenate the area around the Den Stadium and with the introduction of mixed use high density development. Further to the west lies the Old Kent Road Area Action Plan, including the Bakerloo Line extension.
To the north-east from the proposal site lies the Neptune Wharf development site, and to the south-east lies to Anthology development site, both with mixed-use high density proposals.
