Fri 11 May 2012, 11:42 am
Enfield Council is asking residents to help it draw up a development vision for Edmonton Green.
The council is starting work on developing a masterplan for the area following work already done by the council with business partners.
It hopes the new plan will attract more shoppers to the area, while providing a wider range of leisure facilities, restaurants, shops, open spaces and arts and cultural facilities.
The council's cabinet member for business and regeneration, Del Goddard, said: "We want to give the area a massive boost and dramatically improve the facilities available for the people who live there.
“This is a massive undertaking and before we outline firm proposals in the draft masterplan we want people living in the area to tell us how they think we should improve the area.
“They are the people who are intimately aware of the areas shortcomings and they are the ones that we want to help us improve the area they live in and around."
The masterplan will put forward plans for improving Edmonton Green through development and regeneration, and will include:
- Identifying sites for development or a different use;
- Plans to improve the town centre;
- Addressing traffic and transport issues;
- Providing requirements for services and community facilities to serve the area and any new development within it;
- Considering opportunities for funding and investment to improve the area;
- Identifying improvements to the town centre and other places and spaces;
- Identifying conservation and public realm improvements to make sure that development and change fits in with the history of the area and enhances important places and buildings.
The masterplan, which will provide a strategy for developers to deliver improvements over the next 10-15 years.
Residents who want to have their say on the issues and options phase of the masterplan will be able to view copies at Edmonton Green Library throughout the consultation period, which closes on 16 June.
