Enfield's housing chief has visited the Ladderswood site to view progress on the estate's exciting regeneration.
Enfield’s housing chief, Councillor Ahmet Oykener has visited the Ladderswood site in New Southgate to review progress on the exciting major regeneration of this estate ahead of the completion of phase one of the scheme which will see 40 homes on the site completed in the Autumn.
He toured the site, which will ultimately contain 517 homes, commercial space, a community centre, 80 bedroom hotel and an energy centre which will be operated by ‘energetik’ the local energy company set up and wholly owned by Enfield Council. The energy centre will provide heating and hot water throughout the new development.
The Ladderswood estate is being re-developed by New Ladderswood LLP, a joint venture between developer Mulalley and housing association One Housing. Once complete in 2019, it will create over 500 urgently needed new homes in the borough and a community centre. The site will also bring much needed job opportunities with a new hotel and 1,400 sqm of commercial space.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Housing Regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, said: “Ladderswood is a key regeneration scheme in Enfield which will provide first rate homes for hundreds of residents in a great setting.
“I’m delighted the first phase of the scheme is due to be completed in the Autumn, Enfield Council is absolutely committed to improving and increasing the supply of housing in this borough to tackle the current pressure we are experiencing and this development will play a key role in increasing the amount of housing stock available in Enfield for residents.“
