The 2020 programme is now past. We will be launching the 2021 programme mid August 2021
The tour will be available online, a virtual tour of the site led by Enfield council officers. Starting at Meridian Water train station, the tour shall expand exploring the first phase of the development, Meridian One, which is adjacent to the station. Panning through the Ikea site and the link road, the tour shall discuss development on phase two and more as well as meanwhile usage at The Drumsheds. Discovering the south site further, the tour will conclude along the Lee Valley with a final stop at Building Bloqs.
On the 19th of September, a panel discussion will take place online. Viewers will have the chance to virtually interact with some of the Meridian Team and partners.
Meridian Water is a major £6bn, 20-year London regeneration programme led by Enfield Council, bringing 10,000 homes 6000 permanent, high quality jobs to Enfield, north London, next door to the beautiful Lee Valley Regional Park. Meridian One will see approximately 1000 homes with associated commercial space built at Willoughby Lane, which will be delivered by our development partner Vistry partnerships.
These homes will be delivered around the new Meridian Water station, which will serve up to four million passengers each year at its peak. A development partner is also being progressed for Meridian Two at Leeside Road, which will deliver 250 affordable homes. There will be 30,000 square feet of space on the ground floor aimed at housing creative industries. The transformation will represent a step-change away from industrial warehousing and logistics type uses, which are relatively plentiful in the Borough, offering higher skilled, higher paid employment opportunities for local people.
A new series of employment offers will be developed across the site, attracting major employers as well as start-ups, including new meanwhile uses and the creation of workspaces for makers, creators and artists.
Local social-enterprise Building Bloqs contribute to our employment aspirations. You will see that we are working on a new home for Bloqs for them to move into in the spring of next year this has been funded by the Council and the GLA.
The Council will also work with a number of operators to deliver temporary projects across the site, making efficient use of land, creating short to medium-term employment opportunities and bringing life and activity to the area early. An example of this is the Drive-in Cinema on the East Bank of the river.
