Schemes to build 263 new homes in Edmonton and Ponders End have moved a step closer to delivery after Enfield Council appointed a constructor partner to deliver the Council led schemes.

As well as the new homes in the Upton and Raynham Road and Exeter Road development projects, the schemes, worth more than £126 million, will see improvements made to the estates to improve residents’ quality of life and tackle anti-social behaviour.  The majority of homes built will be affordable and homes for sale will be prioritised for local people.
Existing estate residents will be the primary beneficiaries of the schemes and will have priority in purchasing the new homes or moving into affordable properties on the new developments.
The Leader of Enfield Council, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, said: “We will be providing affordable family homes in the areas where they are desperately needed and improving our estates to improve the quality of life for our residents.
“Local people will be the primary beneficiaries of this project and existing estate residents will be given priority on moving into the new homes through a local lettings plan. People currently living on the estate will also be given first priority to purchase the new properties.
“In addition to the new homes, this development will also improve the supply of housing in the area, however the scheme will also boost the local economy and create 40 apprenticeships for local people.”
