On 18 May, we meet with landowners to discuss the regeneration of the Enfield Town station area.
Landowners and Enfield Council will be holding preliminary talks on Wednesday 18 May about proposals to regenerate the station part of Enfield Town to identify ways of taking advantage of the areas huge potential.
Enfield town in the borough’s primary town centre and the Council is currently working on the production of a masterplan for the wider area which will help guide planning and investment decisions for years to come. The area is also earmarked for significant investment through the £42 million Cycle Enfield scheme which aims to revitalise and transform the borough’s town centres.
The Enfield Town Station area and its immediate surroundings have been recognised as an opportunity for great change for a number of years and the work in this area will form the first phase of the Council’s master planning work. Further discussions with interested parties, businesses and residents will also take place as plans are developed.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration and Business, Cllr Alan Sitkin, said: ““Enfield Council is fully committed to doing all it can to support and improve our borough’s town centres, which are facing difficult times. The best and indeed only way to overcome the very real challenges faced by high streets nationwide is by sharing intelligence among local businesses, consumers, land owners and other stakeholders.
“Hence the massive consultation that this pro-business Council is organising to ensure that the Town Centre Master Plan reinvigorates local trading conditions, increasing consumer footfall and ultimately profitability.
“The successful town centres of the future will be the ones that have adapted their business model to the preferences of 21st century consumers, many of whom do a large part of their shopping nowadays online, and visit large retail parks when engaging in big ticket comparison purchasing.
“Enfield Council is determined that the Master Plan help our town centres evolve positively to meet the needs of all our high street stakeholders for many years to come. The upcoming event is the first stage in this ongoing change process.”
