Framed by the £6bn regeneration programme at Meridian Water this event will explore how large-scale regeneration and infrastructure is financed and what important implications this has for development strategies and outcomes. Whilst long term approaches to financing can facilitate the creation of long term economic, social, and environmental value, the challenges in accessing and understanding such finance, and subsequently value capture can lead to more short termism approaches with suboptimal outcomes.
Attendees will have an opportunity to hear from the leaders of the Meridian Water development and the London Borough of Enfield, which will be followed by a thought leader roundtable debate with senior representatives from the development industry, from both the public and private sectors.
Meridian Water is a £6bn, 20year regeneration programme in Enfield, north London adjacent to the Lee Valley Regional Park. The development will create a mixed-use community with 10,000 homes, a range of employment opportunities and a creative start-up culture.
