Fifteen new homes built on disused sites are ready for families to move into.

Enfield Council’s three-bedroom family homes and one-bedroom bungalows at an Ordnance Road development include two fully wheelchair accessible properties.

The last set of homes will be occupied from early next month.

The 100 percent council housing project is part of Enfield’s Small Sites scheme which aims to redevelop abandoned sites.

The residential homes are the first Enfield Council has built in 30 years.

Cllr Ahmet Oykener, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for housing and housing regeneration, said: “We’re building strong communities.

“In common with most other London boroughs Enfield has a rapidly growing population and a shortage of family homes for the people who desperately need them.

“We are pursuing a number of creative and effective ways of meeting the housing need in our borough, both through major regeneration projects, estate renewal and working with landlords but we can’t afford to be complacent and we need to continually find new ways of providing additional housing in Enfield.

“We are determined to increase the supply of family housing in Enfield and the redevelopment of our smaller sites to provide Council homes is an important complement to our larger regeneration schemes and means we are using the space we have available in creative ways to meet our residents’ needs.”
