Ponders End has a rich industrial of innovation and technology. The Electric Quarter acknowledges and celebrates this and is an integral part of regeneration plans.
The Electric Quarter is a two-hectare (five acre) development on Ponders End High Street that will see the construction of 167 new homes and over 1,000 square metres of commercial and community space in two phases. The first phase will deliver 61 homes (comprising of 40 private sale town houses and 21 affordable rent homes). The second phase will deliver 106 homes, a nursery, a communal rooftop play area, a library and commercial units.
We are working in partnership with Lovell Partnerships Ltd to deliver the Electric Quarter.

Ponders End Qube
Going into its second year, The Qube is going from strength to strength. Over the last 12 months there have been meetings, parties and community activities for local people. Exercise classes run four evenings a week with more on the way. This great facility is loved by the local community who find it affordable, convenient and a joy to use.
The Ponders End Community Development Trust (PECDT) is working with other organisations and businesses to ensure that the community offer continues.
In the coming months, there will be events for everyone.

Ponders End Partnership (PEP)
What is now known as the Ponders End Partnership (PEP) started in 2001, when an interested group of local people gathered to articulate a vision of how Ponders End could improve. We built on this work by gathering a wider range of community stakeholders to think about their visions for Ponders End. The stakeholders include, local schools, the police, CONEL, housing associations and the business retail association.
As many of the projects are about to begin construction, the PEP is on the verge of another stage in its evolution and Ponders End regeneration. Development now includes the design for the regeneration of the High Street. The PEP will now work with the Ponders End Ward Forum to enable a wider cross section of our public to become involved with this new and exciting stage in the transformation of Ponders End.
