Enfield is Open for Business

Published Thursday, 13 October 2011

Investors, politicians and industry experts are attending a reception at the House of Commons designed to promote growth opportunities in Enfield and show the borough is Open For Business.

The event today will showcase growth areas in Enfield and lobby for improvements to the transport infrastructure.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Business and Regeneration, Cllr Del Goddard, said: “We want to show the world everything that is good about Enfield and demonstrate how good an area it is for businesses to come to and set up here.

"Enfield is in pole position to drive the growth of London over the next 20 years because of the wide range of exciting development opportunities within its borders, and we are urging industry leaders and politicians to come and see what we can offer them and the country as a whole.

"Enfield is open for business, has a fantastic record of delivering on the promises it makes to business and we're working really hard to build a sustainable future for our residents."

Enfield expects significant population growth in the next 20 years and with regeneration sites such as Meridian Water, Ponders End and Edmonton Green moving forward there are significant opportunities for businesses to help drive the developments or take advantage of purpose built industrial areas in the borough.   

The Meridian Water project will be one of the largest green developments in the UK when completed. The £1.3bn development aims to deliver 5,000 homes, 3,000 jobs and schools, parks, doctors’ surgeries and a police drop in centre in a spectacular waterfront setting. It will also help the regeneration of Edmonton and drive the future growth of London.

The reception will aim to position the borough as a key player in redeveloping the south east of England.

Cllr Goddard said: ”We have a golden opportunity to build a prosperous, successful and thriving Enfield and we want to encourage industry leaders and politicians to join with us and help us turn our borough into a place of opportunity and wealth.”
