The country's property press converged on City Hall last week to hear details about future regeneration in the Upper Lee Valley, part of which is in Enfield.

The launch of the Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF), which encompasses Enfield, Waltham Forest, Haringey and Hackney was organised by the Greater London Authority and 3Fox International and included the announcement of a £1.3 billion masterplan for Meridian Water, the development scheme which spans 85ha in the Upper Lee Valley.

The OAPF launch was covered in the Evening Standard newspaper and property publications Estates Gazette (link to the podcast and the magazine article) and Property Week.

It was attended by an audience of 164, made up of senior developers and investment executives from around the country, representing companies such as Arup, Bougyues Development, Network Rail, Savills and Lee Valley Estates. They heard about plans to build 20,000 homes and create 15,000 jobs in the area by 2031.

A comprehensive picture of regeneration and development schemes are covered in the latest edition of 3Fox’s Opportunity Enfield mag, which was also launched at the event.
