Apartment buildings on Shepcot House, Coverack Close and Beardow Grove will be demolished to make way for 311 private sale homes and 140 units to be developed as affordable units.

The properties are planned as a combination of apartments, maisonettes and houses. A pre-school nursery and a multi-purpose community centre will also be incorporated. 

Richard Cherry, chief executive at Countryside, said: “We look forward to working with Enfield Council to deliver much needed new housing. We are working closely with local residents and award-winning architects HTA to develop the designs for a scheme that will better serve the local community.

“We will also build upon the successes of our two other current schemes in Enfield – Highmead in Edmonton and Alma in Ponders End.”
