Seven small council-owned sites across the borough will provide 94 new homes. 47 will be affordable rent, 31 private sale, 14 shared equity and two wheelchair-adapted for shared ownership.
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 proposal is to demolish 746 properties and erect 993 new homes, shops, a gym, medical centre and community facilities. This will link the surrounding streets to the new development and improve the open green space. It will include homes for private sale, shared ownership and council rented homes for the remaining secure tenants. There will also be a provision for construction apprenticeships, job opportunities and a minimum requirement for local labour during the development.
A public inquiry into the compulsory purchase of property and land at the Alma Estate was held in July 2017. Two objectors appeared at the inquiry but did not provide evidence.

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 Montmorency 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. The new homes will be connected to the Arnos Grove heat network, with low carbon heating and hot water supplied by our energy company Energetik.
Phase one of six completed and handed over in October 2017 delivering 23 affordable homes and 17 private sale homes, which are all occupied. The fit out of the development's basement energy centre is also complete. Our energy company Energetik have had their first customers due to the completion of phase one.
This phase started on site in May 2016 and has been progressing well. All utility diversion works, as well as bulk excavations to form the basement car park, are complete.
The superstructure for the building in this phase is complete and is now progressing the internal fit out.
Completion is anticipated for May 2019 which will see delivery of:
This phase also started on site in May 2016 and is progressing well. It is programmed to complete in March 2020 and will consist of:
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 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.
Vacant possession of the existing blocks for phase one was completed in January 2018 and Greater London Authority planning approval was received on 16 April 2018.
Construction enabling works, hoarding and site accommodation set up for phase one of the project are all complete.
