Enfield Council has unveiled a master plan for the regeneration of an 82-hectare area alongside north London’s Lee Valley Regional Park to be known as Meridian Water.
The proposals are for a new mixed-use waterfront community and represent one of the capital’s largest regeneration opportunities.
The master plan, developed by design, environment and energy consultancy LDA Design, sets out a framework for building 5,000 new homes and creating 3,000 new jobs, alongside three schools and a range of supporting community facilities, a new high street retail core and a diverse parkland landscape.
The proposals include provision for a comprehensive district heating network supplied by waste heat.
The development is also planned to deliver improvements to public transport including a central transport hub linked to Angel Road Station, redirected bus routes and proposals for improved rail services on the line connecting the area to Liverpool Street and Stratford.
Enfield Council's cabinet member for business and regeneration, Councillor Del Goddard, said: "Meridian Water is the most significant contribution to the transformation of Edmonton and it will play a significant role in driving the expansion of North London for decades to come. It will overcome years of decline and will create a fantastic waterfront development.”
