• 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.

    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.
