Haringey Council is working with muf architects and members of the local community on improvements to three green spaces near Seven Sisters station: Page Green Common, Rangemoor Open Space and Page Green Terrace.
Read on for more information and latest updates to the 3 spaces.
We are pleased to inform you that the improvement works will be starting in September 2022. Please scroll down for more information.
Page Green Common is a green space at the junction of High Road and Broad Lane. Haringey Council appointed muf architects in 2018 to improve the physical environment of the Common whilst celebrating its history, making it feel safer and more welcoming, and encouraging people to stay there longer and more often.
Following engagement with the local community in 2018-19 and 2021, we are pleased to inform you that we are delivering the first phase of improvements to Page Green Common, starting in September 2022. The improvements will celebrate the history of the Common, improve safety, and create a welcoming environment for local residents, families and schoolchildren.
The improvements are shown within the red line in the sketch below.

As an outcome of discussions with the local community, we decided to look into small-scale improvements to Rangemoor Open Space and Page Green Terrace, which are seen as valuable but underused green spaces in the area. Following work with the local community to develop designs in 2021, we are pleased to confirm our funding to deliver the improvements.
Rangemoor Open Space
The improvements have been designed together with Earlsmead Primary School, Priscilla Wakefield Nursing Home, and the Page Green Residents Association, as well as broader members of the local community. They aim to invite the widest range of residents to use Rangemoor for play, rest, socialising, or gardening, by making it welcoming and accessible to those of all ages and abilities.
The below plan shows the final design, which includes:
- Three new lighting columns positioned at the entrances
- Basket swing play equipment
- New benches
- New brick planters for gardening, designed to be accessible to all members of the community
- Repairing the pavement
- Replacing the entrance gates with bollards to enable easier access for wheelchairs, prams and other users
- Replacing the bins
- New sensory planting and crown lifting the trees to improve biodiversity
- New, accessible entrance to the games area (MUGA) close to Rangemoor Road.
The improvements will be delivered by spring 2023.
The improvements - which have been designed through our work with the local community in 2021 - will focus on care and repair. Page Green Terrace will be planted as a biodiverse corridor, bringing colour to the High Road and supporting local ecology.
The first stage of improvement works was completed in early July:
- Removal of broken fence
- Pavement resurfacing to improve accessibility.
Stage 2 works will be carried out in September (after bird nesting season) and include:
- Trimming of hedges
- New meadow planting
- Replacement of benches.
We will also be installing new signage for Page Green Terrace at a later date.
