The planning application for construction of 162 flats on the Arnos Grove station car parks has now been submitted. The various documents can be viewed on the Enfield Council Planning Portal - reference 20/01049/FUL.

The application has been made on behalf of Connected Living London, which is a partnership between Transport for London (TfL) and Grainger plc, the UK’s largest listed provider of private rental homes. The intention is to provide quality homes for Londoners, whilst also generating revenue, which TfL will invest in the capital’s transport network.

The development would be car-free, providing car parking spaces for blue badge holders and London Underground staff only. Currently, there are 297 general purpose parking spaces.
