Southern Grove reveals plans for £7m Enfield residential development



Southern Grove has announced plans for a £7m project to create a series of mews houses in Enfield, north London.

The Powys Grove scheme — which will be designed by Dowen Farmer Architects — will offer a two-bedroom house, seven three-bedroom homes, and one four-bedroom property over three storeys, on a site currently occupied by a row of disused garages.

James Burke, associate director at Colliers International, is advising Southern Grove on this asset and others in the pipeline.

The announcement comes just a month after the company secured planning approval for another development of mews houses on a similar infill site in Finchley.

The business began assessing the feasibility of developing infill sites across the capital last year, and aims to continue to expand the use of these alongside its other large-scale residential developments of apartments.

Southern Grove said it would be redoubling efforts to identify a large pipeline of suitable sites that fit this description.

Tom Slingsby, CEO at Southern Grove, said: “The infill site we have selected is a classic example of land that has sat poorly used for many years, ignored by developers who too often prefer larger, more generic sites. 

“If our approach is replicated at scale across London, thousands more family homes will spring up, dramatically increasing the pace of building. 

“As an industry, we must make better use of infill sites, the transformation of which are usually very well received by planning departments and residents. 

“We have another two infill sites in the pipeline and our eyes on many other opportunities that show similar potential.”
