Regeneration cash boost from London Mayor

Published Wednesday, 18 January 2012

Enfield has scooped £1.9 million from the Mayor of London to regenerate and improve North East Enfield.

The money, from the Outer London Fund, will be used to regenerate Ponders End High Street, improve the Enfield Business Centre in Enfield highway which provides support and space for local businesses and create attractive public realm improvements to the High Street shopping areas from Ponders End to Enfield Lock.

It will also help bring together the Ponders End Business Forum and provide a website for companies to use, while improving the look and feel of the area to encourage people to visit and shop in the high streets.

A further use for the money will be to work with the London Outdoor Arts Festival to hold a series of events in Enfield Lock, Ponders End and Enfield Highway in the Olympic year to celebrate the diversity of the area.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Business and Regeneration, Cllr Del Goddard, said: “This money will provide a real boost for Ponders End and enable us to regenerate the area to boost businesses there and encourage more people to visit and shop.

“We are absolutely committed to making our town centres more attractive, viable and competitive and we will work with businesses in our borough to make sure we get the maximum benefit from this money.

“Enfield is open for business and we will be working with all our partners to help guide companies in our borough through the current difficult financial period to ensure that we can take advantage when the economy starts to pick up again.”

"Unfortunately our bid to develop the railway arches at Edmonton was unsuccessful. This is a blow to the regeneration of that area."
