Invest in Enfield

A great place to do business

There has never been a better time to do business in Enfield. The massive regeneration projects in the east of the borough will create a wealth of business opportunities and increase the supply of modern, high quality and affordable commercial land and property.

Our location and transport infrastructure provides easy access to markets in London, the UK and Europe.

Enfield's proximity to the M25 provides road access to every major city and business centre in the UK. There are five international airports, serving every major world destination, all within one hour by car.

Most of our 20 industrial estates are in the A1055 corridor and provide the commercial facilities today’s business people require to grow and succeed. The largest of these estates, Brimsdown, is the second biggest industrial estate in London, covering around 140 hectares. It provides premises for around 240 companies, which employ over 8,000 people.

Our industrial estates are home to organisations operating in a variety of sectors. Many food and drink companies choose Enfield, including Coca-Cola Enterprises, Arla Foods, Warburtons and Greggs.

Supporting local business

We offer comprehensive support to retain and develop existing businesses in Enfield while providing help to those who are considering relocating to the area.

Our ability to work closely with the private sector helps create economic growth by retaining jobs and creating new employment opportunities. Whenever possible, we buy goods and services locally and endeavour to encourage local businesses to bid for council contracts.

We recognise the importance of strong business networks in the area and sponsor the local online business directory connectdirect. We also provide access to the Business Ambassadors Forum, which meets to discuss issues that affect businesses, such as regeneration and infrastructure development.

Affordable commercial property

There is a good supply of reasonably priced commercial property in Enfield that compares favourably to other areas of London. Our links with agents and developers mean we can assist with enquiries of all sizes about the availability of business premises.

London location with a rural feel

With over 6,000 acres of green space, including parks, golf courses and farms, Enfield is a unique London location. It has a rural feel, yet still offers all the advantages of a borough in the capital.

Skilled local labour

Over half of Enfield’s residents work in the borough. As such, there is a good supply of labour at all skill levels, and excellent support networks to help businesses recruit.
