Dujardin Mews, named after Enfield born triple Olympic equestrian Gold medallist, Charlotte Dujardin, is the first phase of Enfield Council’s ambitious Ponders End Regeneration programme.

The 38 town houses, flats and maisonettes  at the mews will be made available to tenants and leaseholders from the Alma Estate, which is being demolished and rebuilt.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing & Housing Regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, welcomed the firsts resident to move in, Andrew Bailey and his family, in an historic moment for housing in Enfield on Thursday (9 February).

Cllr Oykener, said: “Dujardin Mews marks the completion of the first phase of the redevelopment of the Alma estate. It is a hugely significant moment in the regeneration of Ponders End and sends a clear message that Enfield is building for the future by investing millions of pounds into improving and transforming housing in the borough.

“Developments such as Dujardin Mews and the Alma estate will increase our stock of social housing, help tackle the housing crisis locally and provide good quality housing for residents.

“These regeneration schemes also bring jobs to the area, help rejuvenate some of the poorest parts of the borough and provide benefits that run far beyond simply providing new homes.

"We are proud of these Enfield schemes and we are committed to improving the quality of life for all of our residents now and in the future.”
