Business

The Council wishes to ensure that Meridian Water provides high-quality commercial workspace and high-quality jobs, whilst delivering our placemaking pillars:

mixing uses and animating streets, park life on your doorstep and your place to make and create

The Meridian Water Employment Strategy sets out high level principles of the vision for workspace, and these include

  • supporting local entrepreneurs and independent businesses,
  • supporting creativity,
  • high quality, ethical, sustainable, inclusive, and public health oriented.

This will inform targeting of occupiers, along with multi-dimensional considerations including placemaking benefits, local benefit, economic impact, and resilience. Work on Meridian One has already begun which will include 2,300 square metres of leisure, retail, employment and community spaces.

PROCUREMENT

As part of the Council’s Social Value objectives we are keen to ensure local residents and local businesses are the main beneficiary of the Meridian Water Development.

As part of procuring development partners and consultants to help deliver Meridian Water, we are looking to embed benefits through main contractors and consultants through their supply chains to their sub-contractors. We are ensuring that the sub-contractors are local firms and are embedding this through our contractual relationships. All our partnership opportunities are advertised on the London Tenders Portal at https://www.londontenders.org/

If you are interested in working for Enfield Council on the Meridian Water project please register on the Portal. We will also be working with partners and the Job Centre Plus to ensure that other opportunities are widely publicised on their sites and on our social media.

OFFICES

Evidence on economic trends within the local area and London suggests knowledge and creative economic sectors as the most resilient, high growth and high value.

With improved rail service, Meridian Water will attract a new range of businesses that will help diversify the local economy and multiply jobs. The demand will come from both outside and within the Borough, including from smaller businesses and start-ups, as low office vacancy rates in Enfield demonstrate. Meridian Water seeks to accommodate this growth by providing high quality space with adequately high ceilings, finished frontage standard, weathertight envelope, and incoming utilities. Size will vary to reflect the mix of potential occupiers and their business models. The workspaces will include typologies beyond traditional offices to include co-working spaces, small studios and maker workshops.

We are always happy to explore opportunities for businesses to move to Meridian Water. When space becomes available we will advertise this widely. To stay up to date with the latest news sign up to the Meridian Water newsletter.

We are also happy to talk to big business, our Strategic Occupiers.

If you are looking to move your business to new premises, well located next to excellent transport networks in a business-friendly environment please get in touch.
