North Circular Road
Notting Hill Housing acquired a number of vacant sites and surplus properties along the A406 (North Circular Road) in Enfield in 2009. We have taken a multi-phased approach to regenerating these sites, building or refurbishing 554 homes through four phases of development.

In the 1970s the Department of Transport purchased a number of parcels of land and homes along the A406 with the intention of widening the road. The plans were eventually rejected for a smaller road improvement scheme, but the houses remained unoccupied and fell into disrepair. Transport for London, who had inherited the sites, approached us to purchase thesurplus properties.

About North Circular Road, Enfield
Our regeneration work along the North Circular Road consists of four different phases and four different approaches to construction, including:
- Refurbishment of derelict houses
- Regeneration of small infill sites
- Three large-scale new build developments
- Comprehensive redevelopment of blighted commercial sites.
Phase 1: The refurbishment of 257 social rent properties.
Phase 2: Included in the purchase from TfL were 10 vacant plots and garage sites where properties had been previously demolished, which when combined with neighbouring land were ideal for small-scale development. They now consist of 59 new homes for social rent, with sites ranging in size from one new 4 bedroom house to an apartment block containing 15 new flats.
Phase 3: Three new build sites located on the larger parcels of land, redeveloped to provide 56, 62 and 120 new homes plus space for community use.
Phase 4: Working up a proposal for 47 and 39 new homes respectively on two additional parcels of land, along with commercial/ community spaces on the ground floors, dedicated parking and landscaping.
