Enfield Town is located in the heart of Enfield and is the largest town centre in the borough and is a historic market town, home to a market that was first established in 1303 and is still operational today.

Enfield Town is also home to 7% of the borough’s jobs and 8% of businesses, making it the largest economy of our five priority town centres. Employment is predominantly in the retail and public administration sectors, driven by the large number of high street shops and the Council offices.

Town Centre Vision

A focal point for the borough: the embodiment of the modern-day market town. A place with a strong identity which celebrates the diversity of the borough through commerce, culture and heritage.

Enfield Town will be undergoing an exciting transformation that will see a range of improvements delivered in the coming years.

Enfield Council is focused on working with the community to create a healthy town centre that encourages more people to visit and enjoy their time in Enfield Town. As such, we are bringing forward proposals to deliver new and improved public spaces, alongside better pedestrian, bus and cycling facilities that will mean people can arrive to and get around the town centre by foot, cycle, bus or car.

We have engaged the community since 2019 to hear the views of residents, businesses and other stakeholders to shape the vision for the future of Enfield Town. We have heard from over 3000 people through the Let’s Talk Enfield Town engagement activities and events.

From our early conversations with the community, five Design Principles were established to shape the vision for future of Enfield Town, which is that Enfield Town is:

  • Is safe for all;
  • Has a vibrant economy;
  • Is a great place to be;
  • Offers transport choices; and
  • Celebrates its heritage

In late 2020 we published and consulted on an earlier proposed plan to improve Enfield Town. This included the introduction of a 20-mph speed limit in the Town Centre, improvements for public transport users and introducing a series of facilities to make it safer to walk and cycle to and around the Town Centre. A series of co-design workshops were also convened on four public spaces in Enfield Town including the Library Green and Town Park entrance, Fountain Island, Enfield Town Station Plaza, a proposed new public square at the junction of Little Park Gardens and Church Street (near Nationwide Building Society). Developed proposals for these public realm spaces were then shared in 2021.

The input from the community across engagement activities and events since 2019 has been used to inform the proposed designs for Enfield Town that are available to view here.
