Housing renewal schemes

Seven small council-owned sites across the borough will provide 94 new homes. 37 will be affordable housing (20 social rent and 15 shared equity and two wheelchair-adapted for shared ownership), and 57 will be for private rent.

Enfield Council authorised the demolition of the blocks to provide quality affordable homes quickly and economically. We have secured a Greater London Authority grant to support the scheme.

The sites are in Parsonage Lane, Forty Hill, Lavender Hill, St George’s Road, Tudor Crescent, Jasper Close, and Holtwhites Hill. Kier is the council's development partner for the project.

The redevelopment of the Alma Estate will boost the profile of Ponders End, one of the council’s priority areas for investment. This £150 million project is the council’s largest housing estate renewal scheme and together with other projects in the area will help wider regeneration of Ponders End.

Dujardin Mews

Dujardin Mews is a development of 38 homes for local people in Ponders End. The scheme was built for the Council by Durkan Ltd and completed on 6 February 2017. The street is named after Enfield double gold medallist, Charlotte Dujardin and is the first Council developed and managed scheme in the borough since the 1980s.

Designed to a very high standard it is a modern interpretation of a traditional London residential street. It includes a mixture of spacious town houses, flats and maisonettes built to Lifetime Homes and higher than GLA minimum floor areas. Nineteen of the homes are for affordable rent and nineteen for shared equity sale and they have been made available for tenants and leaseholders from the Alma Estate, which is being demolished and regenerated.

The homes meet either Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 or 5 with either rooftop courtyard terraces or traditional gardens. Other features include sustainable drainage, green roofs, excellent daylighting, efficient ventilation, solar PV panels and high insulation standards to save on running costs and reduce their environmental impact. Furthermore, some of the homes have been specially adapted for wheelchair users.

The redevelopment of the Ladderswood Way estate and adjoining New Southgate industrial estate, will now be known as Montmerency Park. Ladderswood Way estate in New Southgate was built in the 1970s and had 161 homes. It's one of the first projects to be delivered out of the New Southgate Masterplan and will provide great benefits to the area.

In February 2014, planning permission was granted for the project, designed by Pollard Thomas Edwards architects. It will create 517 new homes, new commercial space, a community centre and an 80-bedroom hotel, bringing employment and training opportunities for Enfield.

The New Ladderswood Limited Liability Partnership, a joint project between One Housing Group, Sherrygreen Homes and building contractors Mulalley, were chosen to create the new site.

Homes will range from one bedroom flats to four bedroom houses, and will be both private and affordable. The scheme will meet Code Level Four for Sustainable Homes and have a new energy centre to provide the development with heating and hot water.

Progress

Phase one

Handover of the 23 affordable homes and 17 homes for private sale is due to be finalised in March 2017. The structure of the building, and external and internal work are now complete. The fit out of the development's basement energy centre is near completion.

Phase two

Curtis House and Danford House have been demolished. The first phase of work to relocate existing drainage, gas, water and telecom utility services is now complete and construction work to phase two has commenced.

Next steps

  • Construction of the foundations and a 2500m2 basement car park.
  • Part two of the utility diversion work on Upper Park Road started on 20 June 2016. Upper Park Road will be closed to vehicles for at least 14 weeks, but pedestrian access to Garfield School and existing residential blocks will be maintained.

New Avenue is in Southgate, N14, in the Cockfosters Ward of Enfield. The area includes Beardow Grove, Coverack Close, Oakwood Lodge, Shepcot House, Hood Avenue open space and the garage site to the rear of Lousada Lodge.

The New Avenue Estate regeneration programme will see the existing blocks (with 171 homes, including 130 council homes, 41 leasehold properties and a pre-school nursery) demolished and redeveloped along with the Hood Avenue open space and the garage site to the rear of Lousda Lodge.

The 400+ new homes, multi-purpose nursery/community centre, community amenity space and parking, will help create a vibrant environment for the estate and wider community.

In April 2016 a detailed planning application was submitted.

On 10 August 2016 a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) application was submitted to the Department of Communities and Local Government. For more information, see:

You can also view these at the Enfield Town Library and Civic Centre.

People living in Enfield will have the first opportunity to purchase the new homes, and tenants will keep their secure tenancies if they choose to remain on the estate. Locals will also be prioritised with jobs and training opportunities.

Next steps

  • We will continue to work with tenants and leaseholders, to get vacant possession of each block.
  • Greater London authority planning approval and discharge of planning conditions will be in December 2016.
  • All associated work will be undertaken to help construction enabling works to start in Spring 2017.
