Enfield's Growing and Dynamic Centre

Palmers Green is located in the southwest of the borough and is a relatively diverse town centre, primarily driven by a mix of food and beverage. Although retail is the largest employment sector for the town centre, there is also a strong concentration of knowledge economy and creative jobs, with a growing small and medium sized enterprises (SME) and start-up business community.

Town Centre Vision

"A town centre which grows and greens through involvement of its community, diversifying the economy, promoting cultural activity and improving the public realm. Empowering local people and businesses to take an active stake in their town centre."

Green, Community, Enterprise

Officers from the Journeys and Places team (formerly the Town Centres Development Team) have been engaging with the communities of Palmers Green to understand their aspirations for the town centre and to develop a Vision and Action Plan to support its future success.

The Town Centre Action Plan for Palmers Green was published in 2022, and is intended to be a live document which we will continue to refine and update through ongoing engagement with the community. We are commissioning a new update of this plan, which will be launched in early 2024.

Please find below a summary of the current action plan. A link to the full action plan can be found in links below and on the right hand side of this page.

Current Action Plan

Based on engagement with the community and analysis of town centre data, we have developed a series of priority actions which make up the Palmers Green Town Centre Action Plan. Over the short and long term, we will be delivering projects which include:

  • 'Devonshire Square' - an al-fresco dining, community space and public realm enhancements at Devonshire Road

  • Arbeit Creative Workspace and creative community engagement programme

  • Town centre greening and public realm improvements
