Site of the week: Meridian Water
Thu 13th February 2014, 4:23 pm
Enfield Council will present its Meridian Water regeneration scheme at the next Sitematch London event in April.
Merdian Water is one of London’s key development opportunities.
The £1.5 billion scheme covers an area of 85 hectares and will provide up to 5,000 new homes and 3,000 jobs. Between Edmonton town centre and the Lee Valley, the site has great connections to central London, the M25 and Stansted Airport.
In July 2013, Enfield council adopted the Meridian Water masterplan, and work is already under way to design an integrated rail and bus transport terminal for Angel Road Railway Station. The new hub will combine four trains an hour with bus services to provide better access for businesses and residents, and be completed in 2017.
To fundamentally transform the accessibility and permeability of Meridian Water Halcrow has been appointed to undertake the detailed design of the Causeway, a revitalised east/west route through the heart of the area that will ultimately link to Edmonton and Central Leeside.
The first phase of the overall scheme to be implemented will be on Glover Drive between the IKEA and Tesco stores, with high-quality public realm to set the standard expected for rest of the development.
To firm up delivery timescales for the scheme the council is engaged in early strategic land purchases, in particular to ensure residential development is co-ordinated with rail infrastructure and investment in education. The first new homes will be built in the west of the masterplan area, while other key projects include a new £8 million primary school and a £14 million decentralized energy network.
More information can be found on the site profile.
