The regeneration of Joyce and Snell’s presents a unique opportunity to transform the lives of residents in Upper Edmonton. Comprehensive regeneration led by Enfield Council will transform an estate suffering from crime and antisocial behavior into a welcoming place to live. Over a 15-year period, 800 homes will be replaced by approximately 2,000 homes, with at least half affordable. There will be high quality new homes for all existing Council tenants and a variety of intermediate and private homes. The development will feature parks and a new square with community hub that will become the focal point of Upper Edmonton. Residents have supported the Council’s proposals through a strong ‘Yes’ vote in the recent GLA ballot.
