Welcome to our
consultation website

Meridian Water is the largest regeneration project in the London Borough of Enfield. 

 

From 8 April 2019 until 31 May 2019, we are consulting on two important elements of the Meridian Water project:

  • New site wide infrastructure for Meridian Water, including a Central Spine Road, a new and improved parkland, and a new link road which will provide access to cyclists, pedestrians and cars.

 

  • Meridian Water Phase 2 – a proposal for over 2,000 new homes, business space
    and community facilities.

This website provides information on both proposals. Please have a look at this information and use the comments form to give us your views.

ABOUT MERIDIAN WATER  

Meridian Water is a major £6bn, 20-year London regeneration programme led by Enfield Council, bringing 10,000 homes and thousands of jobs to Enfield, north London, next door to the Lee Valley Regional Park.

 

Alongside beautiful homes and world class public spaces and community facilities, the development will have its own brand-new railway station, unlocking the area for commuters, with better connections south to Stratford and London Liverpool Street and north to Stansted and Cambridge. 

The regeneration will deliver:

 

  • 10,000 new homes

  • Improved infrastructure

  • A new employment hub and thousands of jobs

  • A beautiful waterside environment

Meridian Angel Primary School was completed in 2017.  Phase 1 of Meridian Water, which will deliver 725 new homes and associated facilities, has already been consented, and the new Meridian Water station is under construction and scheduled to open in Summer 2019. 

 

Improving Infrastructure

Meridian Water covers 82 hectares, with real potential to create a pleasant and thriving community. To unlock the maximum number of homes at Meridian water, the infrastructure on the site needs significant improvement.

 

To this end, Enfield Council has submitted an application to Homes England for £156 million for Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) monies, which will contribute significantly to the improvements needed to local infrastructure.

The HIF monies will fund:

 

  • A Central Spine Road, which will be a new, tree-lined boulevard connecting Meridian
    Water Station in the west to Harbet Road
    in the east and the Leeside Link Road,
    which will provide access for cyclists,
    pedestrians and cars from Leeside Road

 

  • Edmonton Marshes and Brooks Park, which
    will provide new public open spaces and
    flood alleviation capacity linking to the
    Lee Valley Regional Park

 

  • Remediation and earthworks to prepare the
    Phase 2 site for development

 
 

The plans for Meridian Water Phase 2

When completed, the proposed new infrastructure will enable future phases of the Meridian Water project to be brought forward.

 

In expectation of this, proposals for Meridian Water Phase 2 have now been prepared.  Meridian Water Phase 2 will be delivered on brownfield land, immediately to the east of Pymmes Brook and the current IKEA and Tesco stores.

 

The proposals for Meridian Water Phase 2 include:

 

  • Over 2,000 new homes, with 40% of these
    new homes being affordable

 

  • Up to 22,500sqm of workspace, unlocking affordable
    office space to serve London’s creative growth sectors

 

  • Up to 2,000sqm of retail and leisure space, forming
    the heart of the New Meridian Water Local Centre.  
    This retail and leisure area will be accessed via
    the Central Spine Road and provide an active new
    waterside frontage along the River Lee Navigation

 

  • Up to 5,500sqm of social infrastructure uses, including
    leisure and community spaces, and healthcare
    facilities such as a GP surgery

 

  • A new primary school, catering for the development,
    as well as a nursery provision

 

  • New parks and play spaces, including communal
    courtyards, pocket parks, playgrounds, a new square
    and a new towpath along the River Lee Navigation

 

 

In a separate, but linked initiative, Enfield Council is currently seeking a development partner to bring forward a mixed-use scheme with 100% affordable housing and workspace. This scheme, which is located on part of the Meridian Water Phase 2 site, will deliver 200-250 new affordable homes, together with workspaces that will help deliver a new economy for makers and creators and which will help transform the employment base within Enfield.
