People in Edmonton Green are being invited to submit their vision for the area for the next 15 years in a major regeneration project.

Enfield Council is coming up with a masterplan on how to develop the area, focussing on redeveloping Fore Street and Church Street and making the A1010 an attractive place for shopping.

The plan includes the huge £1.8billion development at Meridian Water, a 90 hectare site in the south-east of the borough where 5,000 new homes, three schools, parks and a police station will be built.

Other schemes already underway include the refurbishment of Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, flood prevention work on Salmons Brook, the rebuilding of Craig Park Youth Centre and the installation of lifts at Edmonton Green Station.

But now the council wants people living in the area, one of the most deprived in the borough, to give their ideas on how to attract more shoppers and businesses, improve leisure and arts facilities, and places to go in the evening.

Cabinet Member for regeneration, Councillor 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.”

Consultation will be open until June 16, will the aim for the final plan to be adopted next year. To take part click here, or meet planning officers at one of the following meetings:
