    Brownfield site redevelopment with social housing to be operated by the London Borough of Enfield.


    Under the Framework Loan operation "London Green Fund Co-financing Loan", it is proposed to allocate funding to a large sub-project above the EUR 50m equivalent threshold: The Meridian Water redevelopment and regeneration project is located in the London Borough of Enfield, situated in North London. The sub-project comprises Brownfield site redevelopment to provide rental social housing to be owned by the borough. It occupies a strategic location within the London-Stansted-Cambridge Corridor. Situated within the Upper Lee Valley, it is designated as an Opportunity Area within the Mayor of London's strategic plan (the 'London Plan'). The development will bring under-utilised Brownfield land back into productive economic use.


    The project is still subject to necessary clearances/approvals.
