Kate Osamor MP is delighted with the news that Enfield Labour has won the area £1.35 million in Greater London Allowance (GLA) regeneration funding. This will be matched with the same amount in Meridian Water master developer money, making a total package of £2.7 million.
This money will be spend on Building Bloqs, a social enterprise already established in Southeast Enfield which will now be able to expand across the area.
Starting with Edmonton, it will help locals to learn additional employment skills and/or launch their own companies in growth areas such as construction, prototype manufacturing, and digital tech.
Speaking on the subject, Kate says:
“I am delighted by the news that we have won additional funding for Edmonton. It is a huge win for Enfield Labour.
This is a concrete economic development opportunity for Edmonton residents; it has the potential to create 300 new jobs for local people.
In December, I went on-site with local councillors to visit the Building Bloqs project. It was great to see such positive economic development in our area and I am delighted this can be expanded.
I want to thank everyone at Enfield Council who have been working heard on negotiating this deal for us.”
