Small sites set for great new homes

Published Thursday, 27 March 2014

An important Enfield Council project that will help to solve the urgent need for family housing has moved a step closer with the appointment of Kier PLC as the Council’s development partner.

Demolition at Parsonage Lane

This project identified seven Council-owned sites across the borough to develop 94 new, high quality residential homes, the first Council housing to be built in Enfield for several decades.  

Over the last year all but one of the sites has been cleared and the developer will start work on the Parsonage Lane site in Enfield by June of this year.

All the homes will be mixed tenure developments including two, three and four bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments with some properties for shared ownership.

The housing will integrate into the existing street scenes improving the attractiveness of each area.

Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “We have taken an innovative approach to the planning and funding arrangements providing 37 affordable rented council-owned homes.
“A wholly owned Council property company will be able to use the income generated from the remaining 57 homes to fund the whole development.

Dennis Seal, Kier’s Residential Investment Director, said: “The provision of 37 new affordable rental homes in Enfield and the retention of the income from the remaining 57 properties will ensure that the initiative delivers homes to the highest standard.

“We will be using appropriate and sustainable materials to create attractive new homes that will fit into their surroundings across the seven very different sites, adding value and reducing running costs.”
