triangle clock
Residents of Palmers Green are being consulted about the design of the clock which the Green Lanes Business Association (GLBA) intends to erect at Palmers Green Triangle.

There are two methods by which members of the public can voice their opinions:

  • by completing a brief online survey on this website - the questions refer not only to the planned clock, but also more generally to the future of the Triangle
  • by sending an email to the GLBA.

All survey responses on this website will be forwarded to the GLBA, but any information identifying the sender will first be removed. However, there is no reason why people should not use both methods.

Earlier today the GLBA published details of the "clock monument", stating that the design has almost been finalised. The design is the result of collaboration between GLBA Chairman Costas Georgiou, Mark Leaver of Enfield Business and Retailers Association and local graphic designer Kareen Cox. It is to be manufactured by Dave Plummer of Triangle Metal Works.

triangle featuresThe design uses architectural features of buildings surrounding the Triangle:

  • the shell detail at the top of Triangle House
  • the hexagonal/octagonal shaped column detail which joins each building to its neighbour
  • a scroll pattern which is found in many local buildings
  • the date shield on the front of the former Midland Bank building.

As we have already pointed out, the erection of the clock does not mean that the future shape or even continued existence of the triangular traffic island is guaranteed. If necessary, the clock could be moved. However, a new tree will not be planted until the definitive layout of the Triangle is clear.

The GBLA consultation ends on 31 January. You should send comments to Costas Georgiou and Mark Leaver. The GLBA consultation document can be downloaded from this link.

To respond to our own survey, please visit this page. Please note that we will not pass on email addresses to any third party. In addition, you can of course discuss the plans publically in our forums.
