Enfield Town. Palace Square Survey.

Palace Square Enfield

The lease-holders of Palace Gardens and Palace Exchange shopping centres, DWS (Deutsche Bank), propose a major redevelopment of this complex, which stands in the Enfield Town Conservation Area, on land owned by Enfield Council.

The Palace Square phase 1 scheme includes: new retail and catering outlets, leisure and evening venues (including a gym, cafes, restaurants and a boutique cinema), residential units, co-work spaces, enhanced landscaping and improved access to, and through, the shopping centre. 

To fund these improvements, in phase 1 the developer proposes to build 350 residential units to rent; a further 250 will follow in phase 2. They will stand above the shopping centre in 6 blocks, ranging from 7-26 storeys. You can view further information about the development and consultation via:

Dear friends,

I am writing this short message less than a day after the Tier 4 restrictions, and the curtailment of many Christmas plans, were announced.  Many of us are now of course feeling upset, isolated, and bewildered; if there is anything I can do to support you at this time, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

In terms of our Christmas services: we are currently discerning how best to offer worship in the current climate: whether to offer services both in our churches and online, or to share these services online only.  If services do go ahead in our church buildings, you will need to apply for space via our

In such a fast-changing situation, we may need to make decisions at short notice, so please go to our website, or visit our Facebookand Twitter pages, for the latest information on our Christmas plans.  At such a difficult time, there are no easy decisions, and certainly no perfect ones, but we, along with so many, will try to take as much care, and draw on as much wisdom, as possible.

You all remain very much in my prayers.  I hope that you have a safe and peaceful Christmas.

Every blessing,

W10 BUS CHANGE delayed again

November 6th2020

After being told that the W10 bus route would be renumbered as the 456 and have an extended route to the North Middlesex Hospital, Enfield Council has just issued an update. The changes are now expected to start “sometime in February 2021”, and not on November 9th this year as we had previously been told. There will be public consultations (check the council website) on the locations of fixed bus stops on those parts of the route, including Crews Hill, where it is currently Hail-and-Ride. A public consultation is also to be held regarding the proposed right turn from Carterhatch Lane into Willow Road, although the gap permitting this has already been made in the central island. The turn will be for buses and cycles only. The new service will now run 7am-7pm half-hourly Monday-Saturday, and hourly on Sundays. The change was originally scheduled to happen on October 17th this year.




Over the past few weeks there have been a number of cases of parked vehicles being broken into in Crews Hill. At the latest count seven cars and vans had been burgled, with two stolen. Lock your vehicles at night. Krook-Locks which connect the steering wheel to foot pedals are a good anti-theft device. If you have one of the coded remote keys linked to the vehicle on-board computer you can buy special security pouches to put them in which prevent anyone hacking into the fob and getting the unlocking and engine starting codes. Don’t leave any items on show on the car seats, or any valuables anywhere in the vehicle. Tradesmen should remove their tools from their van at night. Don’t become another statistic.




In the Crews Hill area

There are currently a number of issues in Crews Hill regarding unlawful use of Land. the Enforcement Team are issuing notices, but it’s a slow process. Many of us know what and where they are, but probably not a good idea to publish.


Notices regarding burning of waste and plastics

This practice has been going on for years and can contain noxious particulates causing asthma attacks, weeping eyes, difficulty breathing. Prolonged exposure is bad news for everyone – please report it to Environmental Health at Enfield Council through their website.

And please let the Committee know by informing us.

Thank you.








Any questions please address the Chairman through the following address…






New Enfield Local Plan 2036 Have your Say

Enfield Council has put its draft New Enfield Local Plan 2036 on its website as part of its public consultation process. The plan will come into force in 2021 and will be the planning framework policies and sites in the borough to guide decisions on future development, investment and infrastructure.

It is important that as many Crews Hill residents as possible inform the council of their views on the plan and contribute, where possible, alternative ideas. It is very important that we do have our say, because the council says a strategic plan-led approach to the Green Belt will be a major part of the NLP.

The council is carrying out a total review of all of the borough’s land resources and the uses to which they are and could be put. Brownfield (previously developed) sites will be a major focus, and all garden centre and other commercial sites in Crews Hill are termed “brownfield sites”.


The NLP aims to meet the target of building 2,400 homes a year, a lot more than are currently being built. They must be built somewhere in the borough, so please try to influence the council in its decision-making.
