In March 2014 Enfield Council carried out a public consultation, using a vehicle parked in Green Lanes, with the aim of discovering what residents of Palmers Green thought about the town centre and what improvements they would like to see to the "public realm".
A hundred people attended the consultation sessions, filling in a questionnaire, annotating a map and using a "Planning for Real" model of Palmers Green town centre to focus their thoughts.
A report based on the consultation exercise.......

Enfield's Mini-Holland funding bid has been successful. The Borough is one of four that have been awarded up to £30 million from the Mayor of London to implement a comprehensive scheme to improve conditions for cyclists, with consequential benefits for everyone in terms of a reduction in traffic-related air pollution. In addition to the cycling improvements, some of the money will be available for enhancement of the "public realm" along the cycle routes - for example, smartening up the appearance of streets and pavements and improving conditions for pedestrians. However, an unpublicised consequence of the scheme's implementation may be the removal of the Triangle traffic island at the heart of Palmers Green.

If you've ever wondered what became of the railings around the public conveniences at the Triangle, we have now discovered that they are being stored by the Council's highways contractor at a site in Broxbourne. The Council is open to suggestions from residents' groups about suitable sites in Palmers Green to re-erect them. One suggested location is in front of the Conservatory in Broomfield Park. If you like this idea or have another suggestion, you can use our Forums to air.......

Later this month local residents will be invited to play a part in planning future enhancements to the "Palmers Green Public Realm", which we understand refers to redevelopment and public works along the stretch of Green Lanes between Bourne Hill and Broomfield Lane and to the eastern end of Aldermans Hill. The focal point of this area is Palmers Green Triangle, the future shape of which is uncertain - the last study carried out by the Council actually recommended completely removing the.......

Following the end of our online opinion survey about the proposed clock for Palmers Green Triangle, Costas Georgiou of the Green Lanes Business Association has provided us with further design documents, which include more details of some of the design features. The pictures in this article are just four of many large illustrations which can be viewed in the new documents which the GLBA has supplied.

The online opinion survey about the proposed new clock for Palmers Green Triangle has now finished. Many thanks to everyone who participated.
The survey revealed mixed views. Two out of three of respondents liked the idea of erecting a clock, though only around 50 per cent were keen on the proposed design. There was near unamiity, however, on the question of whether or not the triangular traffic island should remain - 59 out of 63 people would not like it to be removed, as recommended by a.......

Thanks to everyone who has filled in our online survey about the proposed clock for Palmers Green Triangle. If you haven't done so yet, you still have until the end of the month. In the meantime, some information about what people have said so far.
At the time of writing (11pm on Wednesday) 39 people have responded. There has been near unanimity about a wish to retain the triangle island, but opinions about the clock have been far more mixed........

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.......

Possible design for new clock at Palmers Green Triangle
01 December 2013
In August we carried a report about a meeting between local groups and the Council aimed at clarifying issues regarding the future of Palmers Green Triangle. At the meeting assurances were given about consultation prior to any changes. However, in late October, and without the promised consultation, the Council carried out works on the Triangle, covering over the underground toilets and removing the railings around them, and replacing concrete planters with hanging baskets.
Last week a.......

Local residents attending this week's meeting of the Bowes, Palmers Green and Southgate Green Area Forum were provided with information about the work which is currently under way at Palmers Green Triangle. However, representatives of Fox Lane & District Residents' Association (FLDRA) were unhappy about not being notified in advance about the work, let alone consulted about it, after having received assurances that they would be consulted at a meeting in August (see this earlier report)........

Enfield Council have promised to update the public on the future of Southgate Town Hall at the Area Forum meeting this week, and it is hoped that more information will be made available about work currently under way to improve the appearance of Palmers Green Triangle........

At recent Area Forums members of the public have not received clear answers from Enfield Council representatives to questions about the future of the Palmers Green Triangle and possible environmental improvements in the surrounding streets. In an attempt to clarify the situation, the chairs of two local residents’ groups recently asked for a meeting with Council officers to find out what was happening and to ask about future consultation. A record of the meeting is now.......
