Enfield Council, working with the Homes and Communities Agency, the Greater London Authority, London Development Agency, Transport for London, Design for London and other key partners appointed LDA Design to prepare a masterplan for Meridian Water.
At some 90 hectares in size, it forms one of the largest brownfield regeneration sites in London. The proposals aim to deliver a new ecocommunity of 5,000 homes and create 1,500 new jobs. The masterplan is centred on dynamic waterscapes that aim to support a modern One Planet Living eco community. Our innovative low-carbon masterplan also seeks to realise the first leg of the new North London Decentralised Energy Network.
The transformation of Meridian Water has already begun with £80m of rail investment approved to provide a service to Angel Road and a new primary school to open in September 2014. Plans for a decentralised energy network are moving forward and a new £2million public open space, Meridian Gardens, is already being built. LDA Design is also exploring ways to remodel the River Lee’s urban landscape to create a healthy living corridor along the Lee Valley to link with the Queen Elizabeth Park to the south.
