The approach taken by Enfield Council is unprecedented. The Council is taking control of the vision for Meridian Water and overseeing its delivery, selecting development and other partners to bring forward specific parts of the regeneration, whether that is for housing delivery, new employment spaces or meanwhile uses.
The Council is also investing money and resources to ensure that local people are the principle beneficiaries of the new homes and jobs that will be created.
An additional 10,000 construction jobs
A new employment hub, two skills academies and thousands of new high-quality jobs for local people
10,000 new homes including 4,000 affordable homes, to help ease London’s housing crisis and provide homes for local people.
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.
Faster rail connections at the new Meridian Water Station. The brand new station has unlocked the area for commuters, taking millions of passengers per year directly south to Stratford, with onward connections to Liverpool Street, City Airport and Heathrow and north to Stansted and Cambridge.
Super high-speed broadband across the site matched by a pioneering approach to digital infrastructure to maximize the benefits of the sharing economy
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.
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.
Attractively designed public open spaces providing lively welcoming spaces for all to enjoy.
A pioneering approach to regeneration with Enfield Council actively leading the entire project to ensure maximum benefits for residents and ratepayers.
