A new restaurant and residential flats are being proposed to be built on top of a Turkish supermarket in Edmonton Green.

The plan to partially demolish the existing single-storey TFC supermarket at 361-363 Fore Street and construct a new four-storey building on the site has been submitted by developer Myra Developments Limited.

The site will retain the supermarket and its operators at ground level, but on top, add a restaurant to the first floor and nine residential units on the second and third floors. 

The proposed nine new residential dwellings will comprise four three-bed flats, three two-bed flats, and two one-bed flats. However, they do not include any affordable housing.

Planning policy states developments with less than ten residential units should offer a financial contribution to deliver off-site affordable housing instead.

The TFC scheme will have private outdoor amenity space either in the form of a balcony or terrace and include 40 cycle parking spaces, but there are no car parking spaces planned.

The entrance to the supermarket and restaurant will be at the front of the site facing Fore Street. The residential entrance will be located along Warriner Drive, the street adjoining the site, and comprise a lift and stairs. A wheelchair accessible entrance has been proposed.

Previous plans for the same site proposed 17 residential units but the scheme was considered “too high” according to the planning statement for the new design, which is one storey smaller.

The balcony and terraces were also added to the plans as there were concerns over a lack of private amenity space. There was also concern over a lack of cycle parking provision which is why current plans have proposed 40.

More information on the scheme can be found via Enfield Council’s planning portal, using reference number 23/03988/FUL.
