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 2025, as well as associated community facilities and estate wide improvements to the external environment.

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 this, it was decided that the full redevelopment proposal favoured by residents can be delivered, and we have some initial ideas for the new homes and estate. The aim is to provide over 2,000 homes through the project.

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.

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 site, to be rebranded as EN406, will become more easily accessible and will be redeveloped in four phases. Planning for the first phase has now been approved covering eight units for general industrial, storage or distribution use.  Works are due to start Summer 2020.
