Enfield Council has appointed Barratt London as the master developer of the Meridian Water scheme, which will create 10,000 new homes and 16,000 jobs for the area.

The flagship £3.5bn development, one of the largest in Greater London, has already been granted housing zone status by the government, easing and speeding up the planning and construction of the new homes.

It will see Barratt London working with industrial developers SEGRO on the scheme, which will also see infrastructure improvements including a railway station community facilities and shops. Six thousands permanent jobs will be created at the development in addition to 10,000 during the estimated 20-year construction process.

Enfield Council’s cabinet member for housing and housing regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, says: “It is incredibly exciting that we have appointed Barratt London and SEGRO to make Meridian Water a reality. Now we can start getting boots on the ground and proceed with this transformational project for Edmonton and the wider area and create a truly world-class development which will improve the quality of life for tens of thousands of people.

“Meridian Water will play a huge part in helping to ease the housing crisis in London and will provide fantastic quality accommodation to thousands of families. It is a truly huge project which demonstrates Enfield Council’s commitment to improving the quality of life for its residents.”

The council’s cabinet member for economic regeneration and business, Cllr Alan Sitkin, adds: “I’m delighted we have appointed Barratt London & SEGRO to deliver this exciting project given their strong track record of delivering major regeneration schemes in the UK.

“The growth and prosperity Meridian Water will create will give our residents, some of whom live in the most deprived parts of London, an unparalleled opportunity to benefit from the jobs and training opportunities we will be creating. Our challenge is to make sure that both our existing communities and future generations of Enfield residents benefit from this once in a lifetime scheme to transform North London economically.”

Alastair Baird, Barratt London’s regional managing director remarks: “Barratt London and our partners SEGRO are delighted to have been selected by LB Enfield as their preferred development partners for one of the most exciting regeneration opportunities in London.

“We look forward to collaborating with the council in the coming months and years to ensure that we deliver the right mix of housing, infrastructure, jobs and public services to create a sustainable new community that will benefit existing and future residents of the area.

“Our combined project team has an unrivalled pool of experience in delivering complex mixed-use regeneration projects that deliver both jobs and much needed new housing.”
