Enfield Council's regeneration of the Joyce and Snell’s Park Estates

The funding from the Mayor of London will aid the massive development in Upper Edmonton which comprises of more than 2,000 new homes, of which 50 per cent will be affordable in one of London’s most deprived wards.The Land Fund will help to unlock the regeneration by supporting buyback of leaseholders’ interests across the Joyce Avenue and Snell’s Avenue estates. The commitment is the Mayor’s recognition of the transformational potential of the project.Alongside new homes, the project will deliver a new civic hub including a nursery, a library, a community centre and flexible community space as well as two green spaces through the estates.

Enfield Council’s Deluty Leader, Cllr Ergin Erbil, said: “"This is an exciting and truly ambitious project that will deliver more, better, and affordable homes with facilities that will help to enhance the lives of the community living in and around the estates. The design will not only provide homes desperately needed in Enfield. We have also incorporated green spaces to create a truly inclusive environment to  boost the wellbeing of all who live near the estate. We are committed to delivering these transformational projects in Enfield.”

Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, Tom Copley said: “Building more of the homes that Londoners need is a top priority for the Mayor, who last year successfully met the ambitious target of starting 116,000 affordable homes across the capital.

“I am proud to support Enfield Council through the Mayor’s Land Fund as we continue working together to build a fairer and more prosperous London for everyone.”

The grant will be funded from the Mayor’s Land Fund, which was secured from the government’s Land Assembly, Small Sites and Accelerated Construction Funds.

The Joyce and Snell’s Park Estates currently contain 795 homes but their design is ageing and the area has been marked in recent years by a rise in anti-social behaviour. In December 2021, a ballot saw 78.5 per cent of residents voting in favour of Enfield Council’s masterplan and regeneration proposals.

All of the new homes will meet quality standards for security, fire safety, energy efficiency and space. Existing secure tenants and resident leaseholders will be offered a home on the redeveloped estate and access to construction jobs and training will be embedded throughout the project lifetime. 

The area will further be boosted by the provisional £11.9 million pledged to the Upper Edmonton area from the third tranche of the government’s Levelling Up Fund. This will build on the work being delivered by the Council and supported by the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund with an aim of increasing footfall, creating local jobs, reducing crime, encouraging active travel and creating a more attractive environment.


In November 2018, the Mayor secured £486m from the government’s Land Assembly, Small Sites and Accelerated Construction Funds to help unlock and accelerate delivery of 8,000 housing completions in London by 2030. 

The Joyce Avenue and Snell’s Park estates were built between the late 1950s and the 1960s, and provide housing for a diverse community. Most residents have lived on the estates for many years and are proud of their neighbourhood. However, there has been a gradual rise in antisocial behaviour, the designs of the estates are outdated and the buildings are ageing.
The opportunity area of the proposed redevelopment for Joyce Avenue and Snell’s Park totals circa 27.5 acres and consists of 795 existing dwellings. Enfield Council has developed a masterplan to deliver circa 2,000 homes, including an additional 1,100 net new homes on the estates through a whole estate regeneration.
The scheme will cater for all Enfield residents through a mixture of affordable homes at social rents; affordable home ownership; private sale; and build-to-rent at market and discount market rents for Enfield key workers. Additionally, the redevelopment will offer homes for Enfield’s ageing population, with opportunities to downsize for existing residents on the estates.
