Housing renewal schemes

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.

Artist impression of Alma Estate properties

The Alma Estate scheme

The proposal is to demolish 746 properties and erect 1,009 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.

Project update

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. After hearing evidence from the Council, the inquiry has been closed. The Alma Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) has now been fully approved by the Secretary of State. You can view the CPO documentation by visiting Alma Estate GVA.

Construction of phase one is well underway which will provide 228 new homes. This includes 97 council homes which are expected to be delivered in three lots:

  • 43 homes by July 2019
  • 26 homes by August 2019
  • 28 homes by February 2020

Countryside Properties has successfully secured planning consent to start works on phase 2A, 2Ai and 2Aii, including Falcon Road Spur. This will deliver 340 homes and the works as detailed below:

  • Phase 2Aii - The site includes existing Welcome Point and Youth Centre and is expected to be delivered in two sub-phases. The first sub-phase will see the demolition of Welcome Point (anticipated spring 2018) and construction of the new youth centre in its place. The second sub-phase will see the demolition of the existing youth centre and construction of the new block containing a new community centre, community office space, 66 residential units for private sale by Countryside Properties and affordable home ownership by Newlon Housing. During the works we aim to maintain continuity of the community facilities.
  • Phase 2Ai – The site includes the vacant pub site next to the railway track and Silver Birch Court block. The new development will deliver a new medical centre, new energy centre for the entire estate and 82 units for private sale. The works are expected to start this year.
  • Phase 2A – The site includes existing Cormorant and Merlin towers and works are expected to start after existing residents have moved to the new homes being built in phase one. Handovers in phase one are anticipated from the start of next year and will be delivered in phases through to March 2020. This site will deliver 192 homes for Enfield Council, Newlon Housing and private sale by Countryside Properties and will also provide the new retail shop space to replace the existing retail space on South Street. The existing retail space is currently under phase 2B which is not part of the recent planning application and will be dealt with separately.
The new homes will be connected to the Ponders End heat network, with low carbon heating and hot water supplied by our energy company Energetik.

Re-housing residents

Existing secure council tenants on the estate will be able to move into a new build home in the new development or can bid on the Choice Based Lettings System to find a new council home in the borough. The housing office is at the base of Curlew House and is open from Wednesday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. Monday and Tuesday evenings and weekend meetings can be made by appointment. Council officers in Housing Development and Renewal are available to assist Alma Estate residents with any queries.

The Dujardin Mews scheme

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.

Dujardin Mews has been awarded a RIBA London Award 2017, RIBA National Award 2017 and RIBA London Client of the Year Award 2017 (sponsored by Tobermore). To find out more visit RIBA Architecture.

The redevelopment of the Ladderswood Way estate and adjoining New Southgate industrial estate is a project of major importance for us and our regeneration ambitions.

Ladderswood Way estate in New Southgate was built in the 1970s and consisted of 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 and will be marketed as Montmorency Park.

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 deliver the new site.

Lousada Lodge
Avenue Road
Avenue Garden

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 and community centre, community amenity space and parking, will help create a vibrant environment for the estate and wider community.

A sustainable urban drainage system has been created to control storm water run-off, making the area free from flood risk in future.

Countryside Properties won the tender to develop the site in 2014. As part of planning consent, they are making financial contributions to the local community for educational and transport improvements. They are also supporting local apprenticeships and training during the construction stages.

This regeneration project involves three construction phases, with planning consent for 268 private sale properties and 140 affordable homes. Vacant possession of the existing blocks for phase 1 completed in January 2018, and demolition of the old blocks, Beardow Grove, Oakwood Lodge and the garages behind Lousada Lodge followed shortly. Greater London Authority planning approval was received on 16 April 2018.

Residents already moved from the demolished blocks for phase one are living temporarily in vacant flats in Shepcot House and Coverack Close. Other vacant flats have been let as temporary accommodation for others in need.

In phase two Shepcot House and some of Coverack Close will be vacated for demolition, and eligible residents moved into their new homes completed in phase one. Phase three will see the remaining residents in Coverack Close move into the new homes completed for phase two.

Phase one construction of the first new blocks by Avenue Road is complete, with all twenty homes now sold. The construction of blocks in the former Hood Avenue open space are well underway. Phase one comprises 127 new homes, including 53 affordable homes, and is due for completion in early 2020.

To see the fully developed masterplan and design proposals for regenerating the New Avenue Estate, view the exhibition boards (PDF) from our September 2015 drop-in event.

View the information boards for phases two and three (PDF) from our resident consultation held on 5 February 2018. 

For more information, see:

The new homes will be connected to the Oakwood heat network, with low carbon heating and hot water supplied by our energy company Energetik.

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 carefully with tenants and leaseholders to obtain vacant possession of buildings as necessary for phases two and three during 2019/20, to assist with moving into their new homes and to consult with them to ensure their views are heard
  • Following a planning consultation event with the local community in February 2019, the architects are producing redesigns for phases two and three. This will increase the total units on the site and produce more affordable housing. The aim is to keep the height of the buildings within the existing consented roofline. A full planning application is expected in late summer/autumn 2019.
  • The whole project is scheduled for completion in early 2025
