The attached flyer has been distributed to local residents – please take the opportunity to go along and have your say on the future of Palmers Green. 

We have also been advised that this issue will be discussed at the Bowes/Palmers Green & Southgate Green Area Forum on Thursday evening 20 March at 7.30pm at Trinity at Bowes  Methodist Church, Palmerston Road, N22 8RA .

You may have seen that the Council was successful in its ‘mini-Holland’ bid for around £30million to enhance cycleways etc. from Enfield through Palmers Green. This could have major effects upon roads, businesses etc in Palmers Green and could affect the future of the Triangle. Hopefully this issue will also be discussed at the Forum at the same time.”

A meeting was held at Southgate College on Thursday 18th July to advise and discuss Enfield’s outline proposals to invest and redevelop areas of Grovelands Park

A presentation was given by Gary Barnes, Assistant Director, Regeneration, Leisure & Libraries. Jenny Tosh, Assistant Director for Education also took part.

The Council has commenced a commissioning process to appoint external consultants to undertake an historic parks survey and to develop a management plan for the park, which will be used to develop options both in terms of introducing a two form entry primary school and improving the current sporting facilities.

The area in question is within the boundary of the original Repton designed estate however, it is not within the boundaries of the current park. It is an eight acre site in the south west corner, off the road leading to The Priory and land currently owned by Thames Water. Much of the land is currently overgrown and poorly maintained.

It was advised that this is still a ‘concept’ at this stage. In order to progress, the Council must initially gain English Heritage approval because the land is part of a designated two star park designed by Repton & Morson. A fuller public consultation process will not commence until there has been a historic parks survey and a full management plan.

Apparently, initial discussions with English Heritage have been reasonably positive.

Whilst there is, and will be, some hostility towards these plans, it is encouraging that our concerns over the provision of primary school places in this area has been noted by the Council and action is being taken. It was also encouraging to note that there were some positive contributions being made by members of the audience who felt that it was time that something was done about this area of land.

PLANS/DRAWINGS – outline concept drawings should be available soon and we will put them on this site.

If you would like further details at this stage please contact Andy Barker –
