Experts are being sought to help the £1.5 billion Meridian Water mega development forge ahead.
Enfield Council is putting together a team to complete the next phase of the project which will create up to 8,420 new homes, 3,000 new jobs, better public transport links and infrastructure including schools, shops and a health centre in a waterfront Edmonton setting.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Estate Regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, said:
“The Council is currently putting together an expert team including architects and planners to drive the delivery of Meridian Water, and this work will guide the final shape of this exciting development.
”This is a fantastic scheme which will regenerate a key site in our borough and bring jobs and homes to the area which will in turn help to drive growth and prosperity in Enfield and beyond.
The architects first task will be to prepare a Design Code which will set out the high quality of development which developers will be expected to meet. The Design Code will give residents and businesses in the area the chance to comment on the design quality of the scheme to make sure that Meridian Water fits in with existing communities.
