Exeter Road Estate, Enfield

About:

The Exeter Road Estate forms a key site as part of LB Enfield’s development programme to provide new council homes for rent and improve facilities for residents on existing estates. Our proposals include a comprehensive masterplan for the estate to provide 129 additional affordable homes in a range of new buildings, rooftop and side extensions to existing buildings. We have also designed extensive landscape improvements throughout, including better lighting to promote safety, new cycle parking and play and amenity spaces accessible to both new and existing residents.

The sustainability of the estate will also drastically improved. New homes will feature super-insulated walls to a Passivhaus standard, communal air source heat pumps and roof-mounted PVs. Existing low-rise homes will be fitted with high-performance windows and will be thermally upgraded as part of new brickwork cladding to match the new buildings. Extensive native planting will be incorporated throughout the scheme to improve biodiversity, including 125 new trees and sustainable drainage systems (SuDS), featuring a new planted wetlands drainage basin which will serve the wider area.
