Milestone reached as first homes set to be constructed on Meridian Water

Plans for the first 300 homes at Meridian Water have been given the green light by Enfield Council’s planning committee.

Regeneration specialist Vistry Partnerships is working in partnership with the council to bring forward the proposals which form part of Meridian One, the first phase of this major regeneration scheme.

In total, the Meridian Water masterplan is earmarked to deliver 10,000 new homes.

In addition to the first 300 homes, Vistry Partnerships will be working with the council to bring forward a planning application for up to a further 700 homes within phase one later this year, including 50% affordable housing across the Meridian One site.

Enfield Council Leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, said: “This is a huge moment for Meridian Water and a giant leap forward for housing provision in Enfield. Meridian Water will provide thousands of good quality affordable homes in our borough and will play a major role in tackling the housing shortage here.

“Enfield Council is at the forefront of major infrastructure and house building schemes in our borough delivering affordable housing for residents”

Commenting, Matthew Taylor, Managing Director of Vistry Partnerships London Developments said:

“We’ve worked closely with Enfield Council to develop these plans and these new homes will play a significant role in revitalising the area for local people. Designed by Hawkins\Brown and HTA Design with Fisher Cheng and Urban Projects Bureau, Meridian One is a huge opportunity to transform this area into a vibrant place for people to live.”

Construction of the new homes is due to start in July 2021 and the first homes are due to be completed by September 2022.
