Preferred developer for Enfield project announced

Countryside Properties has secured the position of preferred bidder for the ambitious regeneration of the Alma Estate in Ponders End, Enfield.As part of the improvement scheme for the estate, Countryside Properties will now be tasked with the construction of 800 new residential properties, replacing the existing 717 homes that are now longer fit for purpose.Set to be made available under a range of affordable home ownership programmes, including private sale and shared ownership, the new properties will be sold on to Newlon Housing Trust once completed.Councillor Ahmet Oykener, Enfield Council's cabinet member for housing, stated that the £150 million investment will play a crucial role in the revival of 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 ... Our vision is to significantly improve Ponders End and strengthen the sense of community so that it becomes one of the most family friendly and desirable places to live in London," he commented.Forming part of a major redevelopment of Ponders End, the new homes will complement the creation of a new school in the area that was completed earlier this year.A range of models and artistic impressions of what the Alma Estate will look like are currently on display for residents and the local community at the council's Curlew House office, with the scheme also set to feature the creation of a number of shops, community facilities and outdoor play areas for children to enjoy.Richard Cherry, deputy chairman at Countryside Properties, added his company is extremely excited to have been named preferred bidder on this ambitious scheme and the firm looks forward to engaging and consulting with the wider community over the coming months to ensure the new regeneration works deliver a successful new development for Ponders End.
