Enfield Council has announced its plan to bring millions of pounds of investment into Enfield and drive major regeneration, digital infrastructure and house-building schemes.
The council's corporate plan aims to build "strong, healthy and vibrant communities" and increase the supply of affordable homes over the next four years. It was debated and ratified by cabinet on 12 September.
Leader of Enfield Council, Nesil Caliskan, said: "By prioritising our objectives, continuing to manage our resources effectively and exploring new and innovative ways of providing services, we will deliver real improvements to the lives and wellbeing of our residents.
"Over the next four years we will continue with our regeneration programme and seek new ways to accelerate our affordable housing provision and council homes to create vibrant new communities.
"Running through everything the council is going to do is a commitment to reducing the inequality experienced by people across the borough. We will protect our most vulnerable residents and work to improve the health, education and skill levels to enable everyone to fulfil their potential."
The council also proposes to work with police and City Hall to reduce crime, encourage diversity and push for investment in rail, road and cycling infrastructure to improve connectivity and support the borough’s economic development.
Caliskan added: "We want to make Enfield a place where people feel safe in their homes and when they are out and about in the borough. We will work with the mayor of London, the Metropolitan Police and other partners to deliver initiatives that increase feelings of security, tackle crime, and develop community resilience."
