Devonshire Square

    What has happened in Devonshire Square to date?

    Following an experimental traffic order and road closure in 2022, Devonshire Road underwent a temporary redesign, to create a more welcoming, flexible community space. Over an eighteen month period, different communities and local businesses tested out the versatility of this space by delivering community markets, outdoor dinning, greening, public art and play areas. This was to explore Devonshire Road's potential to become a permanent community 'square' and open air cultural space.

    The statutory consultation on the Experimental Traffic Order TG52/1503 began on 8 September 2022. Anyone could make an objection or representation in writing within a period of six months.

    Following a review of the feedback received throughout the six months from residents, businesses, key local partners, and emergency services, a decision was made to make the Experimental Traffic Order permanent. Please see Traffic management orders (TG52s) | Enfield Council. This came into force on 28th February 2024.

    Are residents being consulted?

    Yes. Residents and all interested stakeholders have been able to provide their comments and suggestions through a series of community events and online surveys.

    Please continue to check the Let’s Talk Page for upcoming engagement events.
