Colin Younger wrote: So, here is an opportunity for someone to lead on a Palmers Green public realm improvement group, perhaps starting back with the 2014 Public Realm consultation which got buried by the cycle-enfield scheme and wasn't published. I thought we had published the draft report on that consultation, but I can't find it. I'll try to dig it out and post the link, unless Basil beats me to it.


Searching for "public realm consultation" will find information about the report referred to by Colin, or you can click on this link .

The article includes some longish extracts from the draft report, but doesn't link to the ful report, which I got hold of through a Freedom of Information Act request. I've probably got a copy on my computer. If I find it I'll put a copy on the website.

The series of comments that were sparked by the article about new trees at the Triangle immediately broadened the subject into a discussion about generally smartening up the "public realm" in PG town centre.

Since the title of the discussion topic is now misleading, I've set up this new topic and will be moving the earlier comments here.

I'm also posting a link to the draft version of a report about the 2015 Palmers Green Public Realm Consultation. PG residents were interviewed in a caravan parked in Green Lanes. The council officer who was writing the report went on maternity leave before it was finished and the report was never published.





Here are the relevant links:

Palmers Green Public Realm Consultation - draft report August 2014

Scanned copies of questionnaires filled in by members of the public

Scanned copies of maps annotated by members of the public

Well worth ploughing through the whole lot!

As well as information about the 2014 PG public realm survey, the website has the complete returns for a survey carried out in 2012. This predates my local activity and I don't know much about who carried out this survey or why.

Anyway, someone patiently typed out the contents of 139 survey forms and then somehow they came my way, so I uploaded them to PGC.

You can find them by navigating the menu structure: Planning & Development/Palmers Green Town Centre Improvements/Palmers Green Town Centre Improvement Project 2012: Survey responses

Or just click on www.palmersgreencommunity.org.uk/pgc/planning-all-subjects/pg-town-centre-improvements/survey-responses

Thanks for sharing, I'll have a read through these and come back to the question of forming a public interest group.

N Morris - I've also been trying to get Enfield Council to make some changes which hopefully would address some of the negative aspects of Palmers Green Town Centre. Not sure if you were part of the focus group which looked at the Triangle (part of Cycle Enfield) I was there and have been very disappointed that a lot of the suggestions have not been adopted. Happy to meet and have a chat re what more action we should take

As a matter of interest, some buildings on Green Lanes in Palmers Green are in the draft Local Listing awaiting final council approval. See:

new.enfield.gov.uk/services/planning/heritage-conservation-and-countryside/listed-buildings/planning-information-draft-enfield-local-heritage-list.pdf

See items 3, 106, 104 and 108. Personally I think No 379's attractive and unusual glass and bronze frontage should have been included, though I know nothing about it's history.

Its incredible to flick through that list and see such lovely architecture in the borough, and so much of it in Palmers Green.

Re earlier, Ibrar, sounds good. Will be in touch.

Wow the transformation of Leyton high street is astonishing, and really shows what is possible. Palmers Green high street looks unattractive, grim and unloved, but has so much potential. Just wish we had as much support and investment as other areas so that it's a pleasure, not chore, to shop in.
