The current Museum of London is earmarked as the site for a new concert hall, so in this case it will be demolished.

Enabling work starts at £6bn Meridian Water scheme



Enabling works are officially launched today to prepare the way for the first 725 homes at the vast Meridian Water regeneration scheme in North London. Ultimately the £6bn Lee Valley scheme, led by Enfield Council teamed up with Barratt as its main development partner, will deliver 10,000 new homes.

Land remediation specialist Cognition Land and Marine are on site pioneering a new US method for removing oil and non-aqueous chemicals with limited groundwater extraction.

The NET method uses oil attracting fabrics running continuously in a loop on conveyors into ground wells to recover pollutants, reducing the need for expensive water treatment.

A soil remediation contractor will be named by Enfield Council for Meridian Water’s phase one by the end of February to start on site in April.

Once Barratt has achieved detailed planning for the first 725 homes later this year principal contractors will be appointed.
