Work to pave the way for the £270 million regeneration of Enfield's Ponders End neighbourhood has begun.
Demolition teams have started taking down the area’s former police station as a precursor to the creation of new homes, the relocation of Ponders End library, and the transformation of the High Street to boost business as part of the “Electric Quarter” scheme.
Del Goddard, Enfield Council's business and regeneration lead, said the authority was working to attract investment to the borough and promote local businesses to the widest possible audiences.
“We want to improve our town centres so they continue to be vibrant, successful additions to the borough and provide the jobs, services and products our residents need,” he said.
