Sarah Cary (Executive Director Place) and Helen Murch (Head of Strategic Planning and Design) left the meeting at this point.


The members of the scrutiny panel discussed the work programme.


The following suggestions were put forward: 


·         Economic Development Strategy

·         How local businesses can survive and/or respond to the Covid Crisis in town centres

·         Local Plan and the proposed Government changes to planning policy

·         Taking forward the work of the Meridian Water Scrutiny Workstream.  The Overview and Scrutiny Committee was due to make a recommendation that this panel should monitor the recommendations from the workstream review.  The 8 December would be an ideal meeting for a first report. 

·         Standing item on Meridian Water – there was confirmation that this would be included on the agenda for at least two meetings, the first at the December meeting’

·         Joyce and Snell’s Estate Redevelopment

·         Other estate redevelopment schemes including Ladderswood, Alma, New Avenue and Electric Quarter. 

·         Regeneration of the High Street – the digital impact and the need to redesign community space.

·         The Improving Enfield Shopping Areas Scrutiny Workstream report was close to completion.  The recommendations from this could be monitored by this panel. 

·         Housing Needs Assessment – types and sizes of proposed new homes. 

·         Culture Strategy

·         Economic Development Strategy

·         Skills and Training

·         Redevelopment of Enfield and Edmonton Green shopping centres. 


The Chair summed up by saying that a work programme would be put together incorporating the above together with the suggestions from Sarah Cary.  The panel would also leave space for some flexibility to enable other issues to be added, if necessary, as they arose over the course of the year.
