Improvements come to town

Published Tuesday, 12 November 2013

Christmas lights in shopping centres, installing hanging baskets and planting poppies are among the projects funded as part of a £200,000 package of improvements to the borough’s town centres.

In partnership with Enfield Business Retailers Association. Enfield Council is spending £200,000 in areas including Palmers Green, Enfield Town, Green Lanes, Edmonton and Lavender Hill to improve the appearance of the borough and tackle locations where minor improvements can help pedestrians and improve vehicle access.

Projects include:
•        Planting poppies at the Edmonton War Memorial
•        Removing hedges, installing lighting and planting new shrubs around Enfield Town Library
•        Providing new Christmas Lights in Enfield Town Centre
•        Installing seating at Palmers Green Triangle
•        Putting hanging basket brackets on lamp posts in Palmers Green

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “This money forms part of our regular maintenance plan which helps us keep the borough moving smoothly and enables us to improve parts of the borough in need of a bit of tender loving care.

“We are constantly looking for new ways of improving the quality of our town centres and these relatively small scale schemes mean we can improve shoppers experiences when they come to this borough and therefore give our businesses a boost as well.”
