Published Friday, 26 July 2013

Enfield Council has launched a new campaign to encourage investment in the borough and raise awareness of the massive regeneration projects taking place there.

regeneration, jobs, housing, economy Improving Enfield aims to promote the borough as a business friendly place, encouraging residents, businesses and other partners to take more interest and participate in the decisions affecting the future of their communities.  It will increase awareness of what is happening to regenerate local areas, and bring new businesses and jobs to the borough.  

The campaign was launched on Wednesday (24 July) with the erection of colourful advertising hoardings which outline regeneration schemes across Enfield, around the Joint Service Centre in Ordnance Road, Enfield Lock, which will provide a library, doctor and dentist surgery and community hall.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Business and Regeneration, Cllr Del Goddard said: "Improving Enfield is all about showing residents our ambitious plans for the borough and encouraging them to have a say in how it takes shape in the decades to come.

"We are encouraging growth and sustainability by building a stronger local economy supported by new infrastructure and working closely with residents, businesses and other partners to create housing and jobs for people living in our borough.  It is crucial that people know our plans and actively take part in the process of developing them so we can build an Enfield in which everyone is better off."

Key projects in Enfield at the moment include the £1.3 billion green Meridian Water development to create up to 5,000 homes and 3,000 jobs in Edmonton, the multi million pound rejuvenation of Ponders End, renewal programmes creating hundreds of homes on the Alma, Ladderswood and Highmead estates and the multi million pound primary expansion programme which aims to deliver hundreds of primary school places in the parts of Enfield where they are most needed.
