Shoppers, residents and businesses will have the opportunity to comment on a groundbreaking plan which seeks to equip Enfield Town Centre to deal with the challenges ahead.

The Enfield Town Centre Masterplan aims to help the borough’s main shopping centre remain competitive and cope with the challenges posed by retail parks and the explosion in online shopping.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration & Business, Cllr Alan Sitkin, said: ““Our masterplan’s central premise is to embrace the changing functions of town centres across the United Kingdom while preserving the beauty of Enfield Town’s historic market town identity.

“We want to do everything we can to help Enfield Town Centre adjust effectively to a changing retail environment and respond to our population’s evolving aspirations.  We are looking at a future where town centres play a very different role.

"Towards that end, this plan will propose a range of ideas such as providing more diverse types of employment, better transport connections and bringing in residential developments with work spaces while focusing more on leisure and cultural activities.

“This new vision will help to promote growth and sustainability in our borough and therefore bring enormous benefits to our businesses.

“The challenges that town centres face are many and varied but we at Enfield Council are committed to doing whatever is needed to navigate them successfully. We will achieve this working hand in hand with present but also future business, as well as all partners looking to guide Enfield Town Centre towards an a vibrant, exciting and profitable future for everyone.”   

The consultation on the Enfield Town Centre Masterplan runs until Monday 25 September and can be viewed here.
