Following success in attracting a music festival to the area businesses are now being sought after to help transform a multi-million pound development.

Meridian Water is Enfield Council’s £6bn, 20-year London regeneration programme which the council says will provide 10,000 homes and 6,000 jobs.

Enfield Council’s Leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, said:

“The council is committed to providing world class housing, community and employment at Meridian Water and we are keen to get partners who can offer good quality jobs and opportunities to our residents as the development takes shape around them.

“These are incredible opportunities for businesses to set up within a location which has great transport links, a highly skilled and well trained workforce on its doorstep and the opportunity to help shape one of London’s most exciting developments.

"We want to achieve amazing things at Meridian Water and we want the partners we select to show passion, flair and creativity in transforming unused industrial land into thriving business environments.”

Applications for businesses to apply for a space at the two sites, which make up 0.83 and 7.5 acres can be submitted until March 15 and Enfield Council hopes to have finalised the details of leases by May which will be for a period of 12 years.

The first stage of the development, Meridian One, will see the first 725 homes built at Willoughby Lane, alongside new public squares, shops and leisure facilities. Outline planning permission is already in place and construction enabling works started in January 2017.

These homes will be delivered around the new Meridian Water train station, which is due to open in summer 2019 and will serve up to four million passengers each year at its peak.
