Industry

Enfield is already one of London’s most important business destinations. Its location offers easy access to the airports, the M25 and the A406 which has helped attract an enviable and diverse industrial base.

Positioned within the London Stansted Cambridge Corridor, Enfield is home to some of the capital’s most dynamic housing and jobs growth while the relatively low cost and availability of commercial floor space and land also makes Enfield an outstanding business proposition.

Significant large scale development and investment opportunities in the borough include the Brimsdown Business Estate, the second largest in London, Innova Park and Meridian Business Park.

Enfield also has five train lines across the borough and connections are set to be further strengthened now that two of the services into London Liverpool Street are incorporated into the London Overground network.

The Council is in discussion with stakeholders to provide a more frequent train service through Crossrail 2 by 2030.

Our Cycle Enfield scheme which has stemmed from the £30million Mayor Of London ‘Mini Holland’ fund will also improve transportation links and provide a first class cycling environment in the borough.

Enfield has a strong, established local economy with room for growth.

Existing growth sectors include:

  • Low carbon clean tech energy from waste – building on existing waste management operations, Enfield has space and infrastructure to lead London’s growth in the green and carbon reduction sector including ‘energetik’ (formerly the Lee Valley Heat Network).
  • Logistics, warehouse and distribution – facilitated with access to the M25, with recent investments by Tesco, John Lewis and Sony.
  • Professional, scientific and technical – Enfield is showing good growth in this sector which is expected to continue with its position in the London Stansted Cambridge growth corridor, which links one of the world’s leading universities and its high tech cluster with the world’s leading business hub.
  • Construction, food and health and social care are also significant sectors in Enfield expected to grow.

As an outer London borough, Enfield enjoys the best of both worlds combining locational advantages of being both a place in and on the edge of the city, attractive housing, excellent transport connections, excellent schools, stunning parks, top restaurants and vibrant town centres as well as property prices much less than the London average.

Enfield Council leverages these advantages to the benefit of businesses and delivers on time, works well with partners and is prepared to take managed risks to invest in Enfield’s assets for local benefit.

Our approach sets Enfield Council apart from other local authorities and makes us an excellent investment proposition.

Enfield Council has a track record of delivering large scale housing, infrastructure and community projects in partnership which have not only made good returns on investments but made significant improvements for local residents.
