Meridian Water Development in Enfield to meet the Secured by Design ‘Silver Award’

A £6bn, 20-year development of 10,000 homes at Meridian Water, Enfield, North London, is another development benefiting from partnership working by the Metropolitan Police and Secured by Design, the national police crime prevention initiative.

Designing Out Crime Officers (DOCOs) working for the Metropolitan Police have ensured that all the homes are going to meet the Secured by Design ‘Silver Award’ standard to ensure that doors, windows and locks will be of sufficient robust quality to reduce crime and help residents to be safe and secure.

This security standard has been written into the respective local authority planning conditions.

Construction work on the first phase of 750 homes is due to be underway in 2020 with the first completions expected during 2022.

The development features a new railway station, which opened on 3 June, 2019 to serve up to four million rail passengers a year.

Enfield Council, which is leading this regeneration project, has funded £40m of the £46m cost of the new station. The Council believes the new station underpins the whole development and is now pressing ahead to deliver new homes.

The first phase of homes are next to Meridian Water train station and will be complemented by new public squares, shops and leisure facilities. Phase 2 of the development will have 100 per cent affordable housing.

Enfield Council Leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, said:
“Meridian Water will be a transformational development providing 10,000 homes and 6,000 jobs in a fantastic waterfront setting.
“We’re committed to making Meridian Water a place where people are proud to live and happy to raise families. That means taking an enormous amount of care in getting every aspect of the development right - down to the tiniest details and that includes a sharp focus on both making the entire development safe but also ensuring individual properties are as well so that residents feel safe, contented and secure in their new homes.”
More than one million new homes have been built around the UK to SBD crime prevention standards over the last 20 years.

Lyn Poole, SBD Development Officer, whose remit includes Greater London and the South East, said: 
“This is one of many large residential developments around London that will offer homes that are safe and secure. We are delighted that the Metropolitan Police is investing in officers who are specially trained in crime prevention and designing out crime to ensure that developments that are being designed and constructed today will provide safe and secure homes long into the future.”
SBD is a police initiative that improves the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live, work, shop and visit - find out more at www.securedbydesign.com .
