The Edmonton Leeside Area Action Plan (ELAAP) was adopted by Enfield Council on 29 January 2020. The plan is now part of the development plan, and planning decisions within the Edmonton Leeside area must be taken in line with the plan, subject to other material considerations.
The Planning Inspector concluded it to be a sound basis for planning along this section of the A406. This is an area-specific plan that responds to challenges and opportunities in this part of Enfield.
The NCAAP is part of our Local Plan and will be used alongside the adopted Core Strategy, the adopted New Southgate Masterplan, and the emerging Development Management Document (DMD) to determine planning applications in the area.
Below are links to the core documents that were referred to during the examination process. A document library (PDF) was prepared as part of the examination progresses.
Inspector Patrick Whitehead was appointed to examine the Area Action. The Inspector held a public hearing session and has now reported on findings (PDF).
We formally adopted the North East Enfield Area Action Plan (NEEAAP) and Policies Map (PDF) on 8 June 2016. Refer to the formal Adoption Statement (PDF). The Inspector formally delivered his report (PDF) into the soundness of the Plan to the Council on 1 March 2016 and concluded the NEEAAP meets the criteria of soundness set out in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and is an appropriate basis for planning in the north east of the borough. This is an area-specific plan that responds to challenges and opportunities in this part of Enfield.
The NEEAAP is part of our Local Plan and will be used alongside the adopted Core Strategy, and the Development Management Document (DMD) to determine planning applications in the area.
The Area Action Plan (AAP) covers the area stretching from the M25 southwards to Ponders End. It includes Enfield Lock, Enfield Highway, Ponders End, Turkey Street and Southbury. Enfield's adopted Core Strategy (2010) identifies the North East of the borough as a strategic growth area with a focus on change and regeneration.
The AAP will provide a comprehensive planning framework and identifies opportunity sites for redevelopment and key infrastructure in North East Enfield. It will be used to direct investment, redevelopment proposals, inform key infrastructure discussions and guide estate renewal projects.
The role of the Area Action Plan is to coordinate this period of change and guide both public and private investment. AAPs can stimulate regeneration, resolve conflicts, and provide policies to help ensure future investment meets the needs of communities.
This AAP is needed to provide detailed and area-specific policies. It aims to ensure that new development proposals bring real benefits, particularly by delivering sustainable communities, high quality environmental improvements, housing, affordable homes, jobs and community facilities.
