OUR VISION IS TO CREATE A TRULY SPECIAL NEW PIECE OF THE CAPITAL
The aspiration of Enfield Council is to create a truly special new piece of the capital – a place with character and edge, where beautiful homes and world class public spaces are enlivened by a rich mix of growing industries in an environment which welcomes surrounding communities.
Meridian Water will deliver:
10,000 new homes
- including thousands of affordable homes, to help ease London’s housing crisis and provide homes for local people.
A new employment hub and thousands of new high quality jobs
- across a range of industries, a cluster for fashion manufacturing, and London’s largest open workspace for makers, creators and artists.
An additional 10,000 construction jobs
- during the 20-year regeneration period.
A new station for Meridian Water
- unlocking the area for commuters, taking four million passengers per year directly south to Stratford, with onward connections to Liverpool Street, City Airport and Heathrow and north to Stansted and Cambridge.
Building new homes faster
- with construction on the first 725 homes at Willoughby Lane alongside shops and facilities, expected to start by 2020, and a new Meridian Water station opening in 2019.
A beautiful waterside environment
- with the River Lea and Pymmes Brook passing right through the site to create an idyllic canal-side environment for residents, workers and visitors.
Super high speed broadband
- across the site matched by a pioneering approach to digital infrastructure to maximize the benefits of the sharing economy.
Significant investment into the Cycle Enfield PROGRAMME
- linking with the wider Enfield network and providing supporting footpaths to make a safe and welcoming environment for all.
Beautifully designed public open spaces
- providing lively welcoming spaces for all to enjoy.
A new Primary school for Enfield, Meridian Angel School
- already delivered and fully open.
Supportive infrastructure and local facilities
- with major investment into schools, health services, transport infrastructure and community facilities throughout the regeneration programme
A pioneering approach to regeneration
- with Enfield Council actively leading the entire project to ensure maximum benefits for residents and ratepayers.
An attractive boulevard through the site
- linking the railway station in the West to the 10,000 acre Lee Valley Regional Park in the East, passing over the waterways and through a series of public spaces to create one cohesive neighbourhood.
