The Enfield Business Centre has reopened after an extensive refurbishment programme.

The launch was attended by business leaders in the borough, where the council laid out its vision to attract industrial occupiers into Enfield, help businesses flourish and prosper and pledged to create 40,000 new jobs.

The Business Centre was given £500,000 of funding from the mayor’s Outer London Fund for the renovation work.

Enfield Council leader, Doug Taylor, set out how the authority wants to tap into the heritage of the borough to attract new entrepreneurs.

He said: "Enfield’s history is steeped in technology and innovation and there is no reason why Enfield could not be a hub for industrial pioneers once more, which is why through initiatives such as Enfield Business Centre, Enfield Council is committed to encouraging new businesses to flourish and prosper. We are here in a light, airy and contemporary space and I think it symbolises that Enfield is open for business.

“Enfield Council is committed to creating 40,000 new jobs in Enfield by helping people access and sustain employment, supporting local businesses to recruit, and by helping people increase their skills and qualifications.

“We’ll do that by continuing to create great conditions for business, help people find and keep jobs, support our local businesses to employ local residents, raise the skills and qualification levels of our population so businesses can find the experts they need in our borough and attract additional investment to Enfield and increase the number of jobs available.”
