£6m boost for Enfield Town Centre

Thu 27 June 2019, 4:31 pm

A successful bid for £6m to help transform Enfield Town Centre has been won through the Liveable Neighbourhoods programme.

The scheme, run by the capital’s Mayor and Transport for London (TfL), provides money to transform streets around the city to make them both pedestrian and cycle-friendly and revamp public spaces. Enfield Council leader, Councillor Nesil Caliskan, said the aim is to build on the Enfield Town Master Plan to turn the area into “a bustling and thriving market town and to create a vibrant, evening economy.”

Cllr Caliskan recently met with the Enfield Town Traders’ Association to encourage them to share ideas and discuss views on how to help support their businesses.

She said: “Enfield has huge potential for business which we plan to unlock by significantly increasing its connectivity. We have already begun talking to traders and businesses to understand what we can do to generate real and lasting changes to the area which will encourage the thousands of residents living nearby to visit more often.”
