Enfield is one of the largest London Boroughs, occupying 30 square milesof outer north London between the A406 North Circular Road and the M25motorway. However we face major challenges. These include significantlevels of social deprivation, environmental concerns, a rapidly growingpopulation with broadening diversity and increasing demands on the
borough‟s infrastructure and services. Enfield is an area of contrasts
between the relatively affluent west and pockets of extreme deprivationparticularly in the east, including wards in Edmonton and Ponders End. Wehave a growing and changing population. Our 285,000 residents nowinclude an ethnic minority population of almost 40%, (up almost 10% in the
last 10 years), including 13% of „white other‟ residents. 62% of the pupils at
our schools are from ethnic minorities. Tackling social disadvantage,
promoting social cohesion and ensuring that all of Enfield‟s services reflect
the diverse needs of our changing communities are important themes
running through Enfield‟s approach to community leadership.
Enfield achieved 4-star status under the CPA assessment system. Five ofthe 27 key performance indicators that contributed to the EnvironmentBlock score relate to transport, three of which fell with the upper thresholdand two in the medium threshold.
