Enfield Council is calling for people to submit details of sites that could be used for development as part of its local plan.

The council wants anyone with an interest in land, potential sites and broad locations for development in the borough to get in touch.

Sites that could be used for employment are a priority for the council, as it needs to provide an extra 50 hectares of land for industry and logistics up to 2036.

The local authority also wants to hear proposals for small and medium sites for housing, particularly in the built-up areas of Enfield, to help meet a target of providing 1,246 homes per year.

People have been asked to respond by Friday (February 26) by filling in a call for sites submission form and emailing it to localplan@enfield.gov.uk, quoting ‘call for sites’ in the subject line.

The form is available here.

The call for sites forms part of the preparation for the new local plan, which will shape development in the borough over the next 15 years.

Local plans are drawn up by councils to address housing needs and other economic, social and environmental priorities.

Enfield Council says its new plan, due for adoption in 2022, will shape growth and development while protecting the environment and heritage.

Council leader Cllr Nesil Caliskan recently stressed the importance of completing a new local plan to ensure the Government does not step in and take direct control of housing delivery.

More information on the plan is available here.
