The Council has delivered a new agenda with working to deliver a lifetime of opportunities for all our residents, including launching the most ambitious Council-led house building programme in the history of the borough, securing investment for community initiatives to help young people make positive life choices, bringing new businesses that provide high-skill jobs into Enfield and securing investment in our town centres.
