THE NEW developments at the Ordnance road and Enfield Lock have now been completed.
THE NEW developments at the Ordnance road and Enfield Lock have now been completed. The project includes 15 family homes, the homes will consist of bedroom homes and one bedroom bungalows up for council rent, with two of the properties fully wheelchair accessible. The new tenants will be able to move into their new homes early February.
The project Small Sites Scheme was started by the Enfield Council in a bid to improve the housing crisis in the area and make use of unused sites. It is the first time in 30 years Enfield Council has built new homes in the borough for its residents.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Housing Regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, said: “We’re building strong communities. In common with most other London boroughs Enfield has a rapidly growing population and a shortage of family homes for the people who desperately need them.
“We are pursuing a number of creative and effective ways of meeting the housing need in our borough, both through major regeneration projects, estate renewal and working with landlords but we can’t afford to be complacent and we need to continually find new ways of providing additional housing in Enfield.
“We are determined to increase the supply of family housing in Enfield and the redevelopment of our smaller sites to provide Council homes is an important complement to our larger regeneration schemes and means we are using the space we have available in creative ways to meet our resident’s needs.”
