Last week, Kanda achieved its 200th planning consent since we were founded in 2017, underlining our track record of delivery for clients.

One of Kanda’s longest running projects marked the 200th consent, with the latest stages of the Canada Water Dockside masterplan getting the green light from the London Borough of Southwark.

Managing Director and founder Karen Alcock says reaching this milestone shows how rapidly Kanda has grown and our record of success.

“We’ve come a long way since achieving our first consent as a company, which was the Crimscott Street scheme in Southwark, when we were just a handful of employees. 

“Since then, we have grown significantly into a fantastic team of 50 communications experts delivering large volumes of high-quality work across the built environment sector.

“Over this time, we’ve evolved to become a fully integrated communications agency – delivering everything from strategic and creative communications to political counsel, visual branding and placemaking”, says Karen.

Overall, Karen puts this success down to Kanda’s highly bespoke approach to working with our clients.

“We’ve always had a strong focus on providing highly tailored, expert advice and solutions for our clients, and the value of that shows in reaching this number of successful consents in such a short space of time.

Kanda has a strong presence in Southwark, so it’s particularly fitting that our 200th consent is in the Borough, just like our first.

“We look forward to contributing to many more ongoing and future schemes, and delivering success for our clients,” says Karen.
