Enfield: City Hall seeks partner to build homes and offices on NHS hospital site

City Hall is seeking a development partner for its land and property subsidiary to build new housing and NHS Trust office space within the North Middlesex University Hospital site in Enfield.

Greater London Authority Land and Property (GLAP), a private company under the control of the Mayor of London formed in 2012, wants to see a mixed-use, primarily residential project on the 1.77 hectares (4.37 acres) in Upper Edmonton.

At least 50 per cent of the housing will have to be of the “affordable” types defined in Sadiq Khan’s affordable homes programme – namely social rent, London living rent or shared ownership – and an adjoining 3,000 square metres of office space will be leased to the NHS Trust which runs the hospital and local community services. The number of homes GLAP would like to see built is not publicly specified.

City Hall says the scheme will be “integrated within the wider hospital site, demonstrating how how high quality, net zero carbon homes can be delivered on NHS sites.

Tom Copley, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development said the development showed his and Mayor’s determination to “upscale existing spaces to create a better, greener, more prosperous London for us all”.

GLAP was created under the coalition government’s Localism Act (2011) to inherit land assets previously owned by the London Development Agency, one of the previous Labour government’s regional development bodies, and others.

It holds roughly 635 hectares (1,56 acres) across London in all, including Greenwich Peninsula, Beam Park, Silvertown Quays and the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.
