• Palace Square Survey

    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. The survey closes on 18th March 2021.

    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.

LBE publish detailed proposals for Enfield Town

The Let’s Talk Enfield Town process, which began in September 2019, has now produced a detailed set of proposals for the Town Centre.

You can access the files from the Council web-site. On the right of the page is the document library. Start with the Information Boards, as these are probably more straight-forward to digest. All the documents are PDF.

The main point which stands out is that Church Street remains open to traffic and Cecil Road remains one-way as at present. However, two-way cycling is proposed for Cecil Road.

The web-site says:

The proposed plan includes a range of measures to improve the Town Centre for the community for generations to come. Key aspects of the proposed plan include:

  • Increasing the number of formal signalised pedestrian crossings throughout the Town Centre
  • Increasing the width of footways where possible to prioritise space for pedestrians
  • Introducing a formal 20 mph speed limit on all roads in the town centre
  • Placing a particular focus on improving the pedestrian connection between the Market Square and Pearsons shop front / shopping centre entrance
  • Improving the pedestrian arrival at Enfield Town Station
  • Introducing a series of facilities to enable safer cycling through the town centre and creating connections with other cycle routes
  • Creating a better connection between the Library Green and Enfield Town Park
  • Creating a new public square at the junction of Little Park Gardens and Church Street (outside Nationwide Building Society)
  • Introducing 15 formal blue badge disabled bays throughout the Town Centre
  • Collaborating with the Old Enfield Charitable Trust and Vicar of St Andrew’s Church to enhance the Market Square as the heart of the Town Centre
  • Creating an improved public space on ‘Fountain Island’.

Feedback on the proposals

Due to COVID-19, LBE is holding three online presentations to explain the proposals in detail which will take place using Zoom on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 4th November, 12pm – 1pm
  • Saturday 7th November, 10am – 11am
  • Monday 9th November, 6pm – 7pm

You will need to register to attend by using the form on the web-site. Invitations to join these sessions will be sent by email, a day in advance of them taking place.

Feedback on the proposed plan can also be left using a survey on the Let’s Talk web-site, which will remain open until 15th November 2020.
