Developer St. Modwen has won planning permission to build 77 flats at Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, overturning a council rejection in 2016.

The proposed development site is located at the north end of the shopping centre and will occupy an underused section of the North Car Park, comprising a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments.

Senior development manager at St. Modwen, Gary Morris, praised the successful appeal: "We are very pleased with the outcome of the appeal. The decision gives the opportunity to provide much-needed privately rented housing in the area, and helps fulfil the long-term aspiration for Edmonton Green to become one of the most successful and diverse centres in North London".

The flats are part of the developer’s ongoing regeneration at Edmonton Green, which includes a new public square at the northern gateway to the shopping centre, the improvements to pedestrian areas in the surrounding area, and the delivery of new shops and leisure facilities.
