What is Let’s Talk Southgate?

    Enfield Council is committed to continuous improvements in Enfield that will benefit the community now and into the future. We invite the community in Southgate to share your views on current issues and your ideas for improving the Town Centre.

    We want the community to shape the future. We are seeking your views and ideas on topics such as safety, leisure, transport and the environment.

    The views and ideas we hear throughout this engagement programme will inform the Southgate Town Centre Action Plan. This will include short, medium and long-term actions to improve the area and work with the local community. 

    Why has Council launched the project now?

    Enfield Council is in the process of developing Town Centre Action Plans for each town centre in Enfield, and will soon prepare the Southgate Action Plan. To make sure the Plan reflects the current needs and aspirations of the community, we have launched Let’s Talk Southgate to collect your views and ideas. Findings from this engagement programme will inform short, medium and long-term plans for Southgate.

    This is just the beginning of the conversation and we hope to hear from as many residents, visitors and community groups as possible.

    What kind of changes is the Council considering?

    This is just the beginning of the conversation for the future of Southgate. We are particularly seeking your views and ideas on:

    • Culture and Community
    • Leisure
    • Environment
    • Transport
    • Public spaces
    • Safety
    • Local Economy
    • Health and Wellbeing

    Your views and ideas will go into developing recommendations for short, medium and long-term actions to improve Southgate.

    Is there funding to support changes to the Town Centre?

    Enfield Council is committed to improving Town Centres and is developing Town Centre Action Plans with local communities. It is important to understand what the community wants and needs before we allocate any funding and it is hoped that through this process we will have a better idea of what improvements are needed to ensure Southgate continues to prosper now and well into the future.  

    How can I share my ideas?

    You can contribute by completing the mapping exercise (available online and in person) or attending a pop-up event to learn more and speak to the project team.

    In the online mapping exercise, you can let us know what issues you currently experience and what your ideas are for improvements in the Town Centre. This exercise will also be available in person at our pop-up events.

    The engagement period will close in the autumn with the findings published before Christmas.
