The London Borough of Enfield had a demand for new school places to be delivered in a constrained timescale. The ambitious plan proposed to deliver 2100 new primary places in 16 months as part of the Councils Primary Capital Expansion Programme.
What we did
Following a feasibility study across 13 sites, a development plan was proposed to extend 7 primary school sites. The project was part funded by the sale of a surplus transport depot site.
The council were able to meet their demand for new school places were able to support their social housing policy with a solution for affordable housing delivered on the surplus site.
Cornerstone acted as broker in the sale of the surplus site, taking planning risk and ensuring that the school expansion programme was not contingent on the sale. Cornerstone also acted as an advisor to both the PEP undertaking feasibility studies, developing planning to RIBA stage 3, supporting the planning applications and in the procurement processes.
Helping to deliver 9 new forms of entry (2100 primary places) and 63 new affordable homes.
