A developer has submitted a planning application to Enfield Council to regenerate a retail park in the borough to create a thriving new community.

NEAT Developments want to redevelop the Colosseum Retail Park, located at the junction of Southbury Road and the A10, to include 444 new homes in the first phase and up to 1,356 homes in later phases. 

As well as the new homes, of which 35% will be affordable, the proposals will provide a Work Hub offering space for new and growing companies to be based in Enfield.

The development is aiming to support 325 jobs on site once it is fully-operational, and 155 jobs during construction. The scheme will have two new parks, commercial space, shops, cafes and a creche.

Paul Ward, of NEAT Developments, said: “We have a truly unique opportunity to create a new neighbourhood in Enfield, which will deliver new homes, affordable housing, jobs, and new commercial and retail spaces.

“Our plans will deliver a truly new offering to Enfield, from space for independent retailers, to events space and flexible workspace. Throughout the whole process, we have sought to work with local people, politicians and community groups to formulate a proposal which delivers an exciting place for Enfield.”

If approved, construction will begin on the first phase of the project in 2022.
