At its meeting on 15th November Enfield Council's Cabinet agreed to continue negotiations with Metaswitch Networks about the possible construction of a new headquarters building for the IT firm on the land currently occupied by the Genotin Road car park in Enfield Town.

Metaswitch, located in three buildings in Enfield, wishes to consolidate on a single site.  As well as Enfield, it has been looking at the possiblity of moving its HQ abroad.

Metaswitch, described as "the world’s leading cloud native communications software company", was founded in Enfield thirty years ago with seven employees, but now has more than three hundred in locations on three continents.

Questions which complicate the issue include whether Enfield Town would retain sufficient car parking space without Genotin Road and whether the proposal is consistent with the new Enfield Town Master Plan.
