about meridian water

Meridian Water is Enfield Council’s £6bn 25-year regeneration project which will create 10,000 homes, helping to ease the London housing crisis and provide homes for local people in Edmonton and the rest of Enfield; Generating thousands of new jobs benefiting the local, regional, and national economies.

Our vision is to create a special part of London

Wide-reaching transport links and high-speed internet connections in a riverside location will attract major employers alongside growing start-ups. Offering high-skilled employment opportunities for local people in a mixture of different industries.

Led by Enfield Council, Meridian Water showcases the

public sector at its pioneering best.

“Going forward we will be in control and we will be the custodians of the place Meridian Water will become; investing council money and resources to ensure that local people are the principal beneficiaries of the new homes and jobs that will be created.”

Leader of Enfield Council

On 13 August 2020, a Compulsory Purchase Order was made to assemble all the land required for the delivery of the Strategic Infrastructure Works. All lodged objections have been subsequently withdrawn and the Secretary of State confirmed the CPO on 22 July 2021.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 in 2023.

Two new development sites

Meridian One and Two, will be delivered through a Development Agreement, allowing the Council to retain control and ensure the quality of design and build, accelerate delivery, as well as prioritise the sale of new homes to local people first.

As one of London’s biggest regeneration zones, Meridian Water is backed by the Mayor of London, Enfield Council, and local residents in Edmonton.

The Council is committed to continued consultation and engagement throughout the life of the regeneration programme and maximising the benefits for those people who already live and work in the area.
