The deal will see a combination of one, two and three bedroom private and affordable flats built, potentially a new doctors’ surgery , improvements to the public area and a refurbished public library.

Building work is expected to begin in the summer of 2014, and completed in late 2015.

Cllr Andrew Stafford, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance and Property said “Southgate Town Hall is an important local landmark for many residents, and this deal allows us not only to provide much needed affordable housing, but to give local people a much better Palmers Green Library and potentially a new medical centre.

“We are delighted to work with Hollybrook Homes to deliver this ambitious and exciting project which is the right deal at the right time for Enfield Council and the community in Palmers Green.”

Nicholas Langley from Hollybrook Homes said “The proposed development will see Southgate Town Hall carefully restored and converted into apartments with a new build block at the rear.

“We are looking forward to working with Enfield Council to deliver what we hope will be a successful scheme of private and affordable homes on this historic site.”
