Development in the heart of Enfield
NEAT Developments, and BlackRock Real Asset UK Property Team, have submitted a hybrid planning application to Enfield Council for the redevelopment of Colosseum Retail Park.
If approved, the plans will create a new pedestrian friendly development in Enfield, that will provide new homes, jobs and public spaces. The development is anticipated to take place in phases, starting in 2022.
Since consultation began in Summer 2018, we have held four public exhibitions to display our proposals for the development site, which includes the B&Q, Dunelm, Gala Bingo, and KFC in Enfield. We would like to thank everyone who has come to our consultation sessions and given their feedback. Once validated by Enfield Council, you can view and comment on the final plans on the Council’s website here.
In addition to new housing and homes, of which 35% will be affordable, the Enfield development is expected to support over 325 jobs on site once fully operational, together with 155 jobs during the construction process. A significant amount of new public realm and open green space for pedestrians will also be created, including two new parks, equivalent to the size of 65 tennis courts, and amounting to over a third of the site area.
We have actively sought to engage and consult with the local community, with hundreds of residents attending public consultation events held between November 2018 and July 2019. The feedback provided by the local community has helped to shape the designs and drive them forward to this proposal. We continue to seek information and opinions from the local community about the Enfield development site, which includes the existing B&Q, Dunelm and Gala Bingo to ensure that we take these thoughts into account.
