Overview

At Linden Homes, we are committed to consulting local communities in those areas in which we seek to develop.

As you are likely to be aware, outline planning permission was granted in March 2015 to redevelop Chase Farm Hospital with a mixed-use scheme comprising 32,000sqm of replacement hospital facilities, a three-form entry primary school and up to 500 new homes.

Award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes acquired an interest in the first phase of the scheme (Parcel A) at the former Chase Farm Hospital.

As part of our pre-application engagement with the local community, Linden Homes arranged a public exhibition in October 2016 before submitting a Reserved Matters planning application.

In June 2017, the London Borough of Enfield granted planning permission for:

  • an attractive mix of 138 new homes;
  • vehicular access to the site from The Ridgeway and Hunters Way / Lavender Hill, in accordance with the outline planning permission;
  • car parking, which will be provided in accordance with the outline consent; and
  • a landscaped area of public open space.

Of the 138 homes, Linden Homes will provide an attractive mix comprising:

  • 1 bed apartments x 6 homes
  • 2 bed apartments x 15 homes
  • 2 bed houses x 6 homes
  • 3 bed apartments x 3 homes
  • 3 bed houses x 62 homes
  • 4 bed houses x 46 homes

Of the 138 homes, 26 are proposed to be classified as affordable housing, in accordance with the outline planning permission.

The development will also provide economic investment and new jobs for Enfield. The planning application reference is 14/04574/OUT. You can view all of the application documents on the London Borough of Enfield's website here.

Benefits

The development of Linden Homes’ scheme would deliver a number of important benefits to the local community, including:

  • Significant investment into the local economy through the development of the site.
  • The provision of much needed market and affordable housing for local people.
  • New Homes Bonus payments to the London Borough of Enfield totalling £873,536 over a six-year period. The money is provided un-ringfenced.
  • A comprehensive Section 106 package towards local infrastructure and services would be made in accordance with the outline planning permission.
  • The creation of a number of new jobs during the construction period. A development of 138 homes would require a workforce of 207 people.*
  • Opportunities for local people seeking apprenticeships in the building industry.
  • Highly energy efficient homes using the fabric first approach, helping to reduce the cost of utility bills.

Next Steps

  • A Reserved Matters planning application was submitted in February 2017.
  • Demolition work is already underway to clear and prepare the site.
  • Statutory consultation will now be undertaken by the London Borough of Enfield which will run for 21 days.
  • Linden Homes will continue to liaise with the Council and statutory consultees on an ongoing basis.

Spring 2017:

  • Expected determination of Reserved Matters planning application.

Summer 2017:

  • Expected start on site, subject to approval of Reserved Matters and discharge of pre-commencement conditions discharged.
