Plans submitted for Montagu Industrial Estate redevelopment

A planning application has been submitted for Phase One of the Montagu Industrial Estate redevelopment in Enfield, North London.

Phase One works, if granted planning permission, will kick-start regeneration plans for the whole 27-acre estate, delivered in a joint venture between the landowner Enfield Council and Henry Boot Developments (HBD).

If planning permission is granted Phase One will significantly enhance the built environment along Montagu Road, being the most prominent site on the estate and could see the creation of many new jobs.

Phase One is expected to begin Q2 2020, subject to planning permission being granted. The cleared site covers 2.45 acres and has already seen the demolition of Unecol House, which was dilapidated and had stood empty for many years.

Phase One will provide a multi-let scheme totaling 55,353 sq ft made up of eight high-quality, modern industrial, warehouse units with associated offices. The units will range in size from 3,562-8,374 sq ft with the flexibility to combine units to meet occupier needs. The premises are an ideal size for local SMEs.

Harry Bunbury, Senior Development Surveyor at HBD London, said: “We are pleased to be working alongside the landowner Enfield Council, to complete the redevelopment of Montagu Estate, and look forward to getting started on site once planning permission has been granted. The first phase will help kick start the regeneration of the 27-acre site and will provide modern, high-quality industrial premises and business space to support small companies.

“Future phases will include larger units which will allow business to grow, contributing to a thriving industrial estate and in turn strengthening the local economy in Enfield. The redevelopment [if granted] will also offer significant improvement to the local environment, socially, aesthetically and environmentally.”

Part of the Henry Boot Group of Companies, HBD is one of the UK’s most active property developers, with offices in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Glasgow. It has a strong track record in partnering with local authorities on the successful delivery of employment sites, including Markham Vale, its flagship industrial scheme in Derbyshire. HBD’s London team has several such projects currently underway, including Airport Business Park in Southend and Butterfield Business Park in Luton.
