Enfield seeks architect for £1.5bn Meridian Water housing scheme

  • Comment

The London Borough of Enfield is on the hunt for an architect for its £1.5 billion Meridian Water Housing Zone scheme

The council is seeking a firm with a ‘leading reputation’ to take forward the enormous 85 hectare brownfield regeneration next to Banbury Reservoir in the Lea Valley.

Masterplanned by LDA Design, the site has been earmarked to receive relaxed planning restrictions and a share of £400m-worth of funding as part of the London mayor’s ‘housing zones’ initiative.

Meridian Water is expected to deliver 5,000 ‘desirable and energy efficient’ homes, new schools, a library and 3,000 new jobs by 2026.

An additional 3,000 new homes are meanwhile planned for the neighbouring Edmonton Hinterland Area which is also included within the housing zone.

The winner of the £4.4 million contract will prepare a design code for the entire district and work up a detailed planning application forMeridian Water’s first phase. It will also advise the council throughout the housing zone’s delivery stages.

LDA Design defeated AECOM, Broadway Malyan and Urban Practitioners with Stock Woolstencroft in a competition to masterplan the site five years ago.

A planning consultant and landscape architect are also sought in separate lots.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 23 March.
