Turkish developers have three weeks to express interest in a massive home and business development in North London worth £1.5 billion.
The Meridian Water project, which will provide 8,000 new homes and create 3,000 jobs over the next fifteen years south of Edmonton, presents opportunities for contractors in a range of areas, particularly construction.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Housing Regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Öykener, cabinet member for housing and regeneration, said the project was a “great opportunity” for developers.
“This is an ambitious, innovative and exciting project which will make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of families in Enfield and demonstrates the council’s commitment to large scale regeneration schemes which provide a tangible benefit to both individuals and the wider community,” he said.
A new Meridian Angel primary school has been approved and will open next year, and the Angel Gardens park will be completed by the end of the year.
Plans for the new Meridian Boulevard are underway with construction due to start in 2015 and the Lee Valley Heat Network company has been established to supply heat and hot water to homes at Meridian Water in 2018.
The Council said it is also in the process of creating the Meridian Water multi-disciplinary team to manage the project.
The team will be made up of expert architects, planners, landscape architects, surveyors, engineers, transport planners and environmental consultants – all responsible for advising the Council throughout the project.
Enfield Council is advertising for developers to drive forward the delivery of the project in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and is seeking applications from interested parties ahead of a full tender process.
Interested bidders are required to first complete a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire, also known as a PQQ, by visit www.londontenders.org. The PQQ must be returned no later than Friday 3 July.
