New Avenue, Oakwood

New Avenue forms a key part of Enfield Council’s Estate Renewal Programme. The redevelopment of Beardow Grove, Coverack Close, Oakwood Lodge and Shepcot House will see over 400 new mixed tenure homes built by 2023, as well as associated community facilities and estate wide improvements to the external environment. The Council, developer, architects and residents are currently progressing designs and working towards enabling works commenced in Autumn 2017 and the first homes are due to be completed late 2019.

Joyce Avenue and Snell’s Park Estates, Edmonton

We are looking into opportunities on the Joyce Avenue and Snell’s Park Estates in Edmonton. In 2017 HTA Design LLP was appointed to study the two estates and to develop scheme proposals with the full involvement of the estates’ residents and stakeholders. Following on from this, there will be a report to the Council’s Cabinet later this year.

Small Housing Sites – Rolling Programme

The Council is continuing to bring forward smaller scale infill sites across the Borough for housing development. These sites include blocks of underused garages and various parcels of underutilised estate land which have capacity for new housing. The Council’s approach is to package these smaller scale sites together to achieve economies of scale.

The Council is working with architects to get planning consent and will be taking a mixed approach, by either funding development and procuring a building contractor, or also potentially disposing of sites to a development partner or registered provider. The Council will be posting some of these tender opportunities later this year.

Montagu Industrial Estate, Edmonton

This 11.6ha site, just north of the A406 in Edmonton, is set to be transformed into a business hub under plans agreed in September 2016. The site will provide over 680,000sq ft of mixed-use employment space under an informal masterplan. The Council has set up a partnership group to progress the projects and a development agreement has been signed.

Seven Small Housing Sites

The Small Housing Sites project consists of six former sheltered housing blocks and one former garage site (Parsonage Lane, Jasper Close, St Georges Road, Lavender Hill, Holtwhites Hill, Forty Hill, Tudor Crescent) which have now made way for 94 homes.

  • It will provide 37 affordable units (20 social rent and 17 shared equity).
  • A further 57 will be available for private rent.
  • All seven sites are expected to be completed in Summer 2018.
