Countryside beat rival joint venture bidder Laing O’Rourke/Keepmoat with plans to demolish the four existing tower blocks with 800 homes council-owned, private and shared ownership homes to be owned by Newlon Housing Trust.
The £150m redevelopment is the council’s largest housing renewal project, and is part of the wider redevelopment of Ponders End that has already seen completion of a new school and upgrades to transport and a nearby park.
Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing said, “This investment will revive this part of Enfield, providing first class affordable family homes and state of the art facilities.
“The appointment of Countryside Properties takes us a big step forward towards rebuilding the estate; creating a greener, safer and brighter neighbourhood.”
Richard Cherry, Deputy Chairman at Countryside Properties said, “We are very excited about continuing our involvement in Enfield and working with our partners Enfield Council and Newlon Housing.
“We look forward to engaging and involving residents and the wider community to create a successful new development in Ponders End.”
