Fore Street is at the heart of Angel Edmonton, a dynamic local town centre but one which also suffers from high levels deprivation, serious crime, and a shortage of opportunity and employment.


Enfield Council have secured £2.2 million in funding from the Mayor of London to improve spaces along and around Fore Street, including:

  • Upgrading the existing library into Fore Street's Living Room Library, supporting a range of additional community and cultural activities
  • Transforming existing underused garages into affordable workspaces
  • New street furniture and artwork to the public realm along Fore Street and in key alleyways
  • A clean air route which will include improved around St. John & St. James Primary School

We spoke with stakeholders throughout the preparation of our funding application, and each of these ideas has been developed in response to specific local needs and aspirations. Together, they will aim to highlight and strengthen the existing identity of Angel Edmonton, while working towards the objectives set out in Enfield's Local Plan.

Enfield Council have appointed Jan Kattein Architects and Fisher Cheng to design and deliver these improvements, see the overview video to introduce the projects.
