Some £1.3 billion worth of development could be created under a masterplan for one of London’s largest regeneration sites.
The London Borough of Enfield has launched a consultation on the masterplan for Meridian Water, an 82 hectares site in Edmonton currently occupied by former industrial buildings. The consultation runs to 3 August.
Its proposals include 5,000 homes and employment uses to create 3,000 jobs, plus schools, a new retail centre and transport interchange.
Meridian Water sits on the River Lea and would also be linked by new parkland to the Lea Valley Regional Park.
Under the masterplan written by LDA Design, a central causeway would serve as the development’s backbone linking its employment and residential sections.
LDA Design’s director of urban design Colin James said: “This masterplan is the first step towards bringing forward Enfield council’s vision for creating new high quality, energy efficient housing and breathing new life into employment areas
