Public Realm

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

As part of the Angel Edmonton Good Growth Fund project, a number of public realm improvements are proposed along Fore Street as high-impact placemaking interventions at key sites that have been identified through extensive consultation.


In an area which is undergoing vast amounts of change, we are looking to create a public realm that generates continuity of place, drawing together themes of past, present and future. The proposed plans aim to celebrate positive narratives and local conceptions of place.


Project Aims

  • Enhance the high street offer

  • Improve the perceptions of safety

  • Deliver a linked set of interventions that improve place and change local and external perceptions of Fore Street.

  • Celebrate the diversity of Fore Street.

  • Help to alleviate long standing concerns expressed by local residents; anti-social behaviour, crime, traffic.

  • Facilitate community engagement and build capacity.

  • Improve health and well-being.

  • Improve sense of belonging to Angel Edmonton.

Central to the success of the project will be how the public realm will be activated by residents of Angel Edmonton. As a local architectural practice, Fisher Cheng would love to hear from you if you would be interested in becoming involved. We would also welcome your views via this short quesionnaire https://forms.gle/cmzRnWPhDt6Y9Mro9

Your feedback will be invaluable in capturing a snapshot of the neighbourhood at the cusp of change and help us highlight and celebrate Angel Edmonton’s unique character within the forthcoming public realm works. If you have any specific questions, get in touch with us at towncentres@enfield.gov.uk

Action Days: 21st & 22nd May

We want the community to shape the public realm around which they live, work and spend time. Come and visit one of our pop-up Action Days or complete your feedback online where you can participate in the submission process for some of the proposed artworks.

Friday 21st May

2pm - 6pm:

Join us outside Fore Street Library, 109-111 Fore Street to discuss our design proposals for the Living Room Library and garage workspaces, and how these spaces can respond to the needs of local businesses, residents and community groups.

Saturday 22nd May

10am - 2pm:

Come find us in the Trafalgar Place and Joyce and Snells alleyways just off Fore Street during the day.

8pm - 9pm:

Meet outside Fore Street Library to join us for a night walk where we can share in our collective experience of the street at night and hear your ideas on how this can be improved.

Your feedback will inform the proposals for the public realm, and it is expected that these will begin to be delivered in Autumn 2021.
