An industrial estate in Edmonton is set to be transformed under major regeneration plans, making it into a modern and bustling business hub.
The Montagu Industrial Estate, just north of the A406, currently has a number of structures of varying ages and quality.
Now Enfield Council has drawn up a state-of-the-art plan to help breathe new life into the area. It aims to pave the way for a mixture of brand new fit-for-purpose industrial and commercial facilities. The Council will be setting up a partnership group to take forward the project.
The proposals, which were agreed at Full Council on the 21 September, will see more jobs being created and an increase in business opportunities.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration & Business, Cllr Alan Sitkin, said “This exciting new project will see new life and vibrancy breathed into one of our older industrial estates, making it fit for the future and able to support high tech industries in the 21 Century.
“It is very exciting. Our vision for Montagu is to create a mixed use environment that will offer a range of accommodation within a well-planned, accessible and vibrant estate. We will look to group similar businesses in buildings or zones that are designed to meet the specific needs of the occupiers and in this way support occupational needs and business growth.
“Enfield Council is the council of growth and regeneration. From our flagship Meridian Water project, which will provide 10,000 homes and 10,000 jobs and significant infrastructure improvements, to the building of 167 new energy efficient homes, together with a replacement library and a high quality commercial space in Ponders End, we are a local authority of action, not talk.
“This work will bolster our aim which is to help lift the wards in the area out of the most deprived in the United Kingdom; we will do this by stimulating industry and creating jobs.”
