Meridian Water is Enfield Council’s £6bn 25-year regeneration project which will create 10,000 homes including 4,000 affordable homes, to help to ease the London housing crisis and provide homes for local people in Enfield.
With excellent transport and internet connections in a high quality environment, Meridian Water will attract major employers in fast-growing sectors alongside growing start-ups. It will represent a step-change away from industrial warehousing and logistics type uses which are relatively plentiful in the Borough, offering higher skilled, higher paid employment opportunities for local people.
All lodged objections have been subsequently withdrawn and the Secretary of State confirmed the CPO on 22 July 2021. Commencement of the Strategic Infrastructure Works is scheduled to commence at the beginning of 2022.

With the Council as the master developer, Meridian Four is the fourth development opportunity within the 85‐hectare Meridian Water site and falls within Phase 2 of the Meridian Water scheme,
