We have launched a survey for all residents of and visitors to Enfield Town to hear your views of the proposed Palace Square development. The survey is being independently run by Civic Voice. Your views count so please use this option to share them with Civic Voice, the national charity which engages communities with planning issues which affect their lives.
If more than one person wishes to complete the survey from the same household, each person should use a different device. The survey can be completed using a phone, tablet or desktop computer.

Forty Hall was built between 1629 and 1633 for Sir Nicholas
Rainton (or Raynton), who was Lord Mayor of London in 1632. Forty
Hall was owned by members of the Meyer family from 1799 and by
members of the Bowles family from 1895, before being sold to Enfield
Council in 1951. The house is usually open to visitors from Wednesday
to Sunday, free of charge.
