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
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.
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.
