Residents are due to move into 15 new homes built on disused sites as part of efforts by Enfield Council to increase the number of family homes in the borough.
The development at Ordnance Road, Enfield Lock, will consist of three bedroom family homes and one bedroom bungalows for council rent, including two fully wheelchair accessible properties and residents were due to move into the last set of properties in early February.
The project is part of Enfield Council’s Small Sites scheme which aims to redevelop abandoned sites to provide dozens of high quality residential homes. They are the first homes built by Enfield Council in 30 years.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Housing Regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, said: “We’re building strong communities. In common with most other London boroughs Enfield has a rapidly growing population and a shortage of family homes for the people who desperately need them.
“We are pursuing a number of creative and effective ways of meeting the housing need in our borough, both through major regeneration projects, estate renewal and working with landlords but we can’t afford to be complacent and we need to continually find new ways of providing additional housing in Enfield.
“We are determined to increase the supply of family housing in Enfield and the redevelopment of our smaller sites to provide Council homes is an important complement to our larger regeneration schemes and means we are using the space we have available in creative ways to meet our residents needs.”
