Enfield estate regeneration approved

Words: Laura Edgar
Elements phase 2A, Enfield / Countryside

Enfield Council has granted planning approval for 303 homes at the £300 million regeneration of the former Alma estate in Ponders End.

The scheme is being delivered by developer Countryside Properties and Enfield Council.

The permission is for phases 2A and 4 of the scheme, known as Elements. They will be built on South Street and Alma Road.

Of the homes, 104 will be available for shared ownership and affordable rent. Alongside housing, the phases feature a public park, sports and play facilities, communal gardens and around 700 square metres of commercial space. Work on these phases is expected to begin later this year.

Kevin Delve, managing director, East London, Countryside, said: “Throughout the regeneration of the Alma estate our priority has been working with the local community and Enfield Council to deliver new homes and community facilities that reflect the needs of residents. Therefore, we are delighted that our proposals for the next phases of Elements have been unanimously consented, paving the way for the next stage of our regeneration – delivering high-quality new homes with a new park and improved public realm.”

Nesil Caliskan, leader of Enfield Council, added: “The development is an important part of our housing and growth strategy, where we are working with the local community and partners like Countryside to develop more and better homes together.”

The scheme in its entirety comprises 1,000 new homes and over 71,000 square feet of new community facilities within 10 years. Three phases of the Alma regeneration project have so far been completed, including 310 homes, a medical centre and a youth centre.
