Have your say
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.
As we move to the next stage of design during summer 2021, we would like to update the community on the delivery of the improvements to Page Green Common and provide the opportunity to help shape the design of Rangemoor Open Space and Page Green Terrace.
We invite you to say hello at our drop-in session on Page Green Common on 7 July 3-7pm or fill out our short online survey (external link) *Closing Friday 16 July 2021* to tell us your views on Rangemoor Open Space and Page Green Terrace.
Read on for more information on the three spaces and how to get involved.
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.
We held events on the Common where we spoke with local residents and businesses, Earlsmead Primary School, Page Green Residents Association and local creatives to understand what improvements they would like to see. Their views informed a concept design that was approved by the Council in 2019.
Following delays to the project, we are now developing a detailed design for Page Green Common improvements that will be delivered in early 2022.
We have also identified elements that respond to the priorities of the local community and can be delivered this year, in advance of the rest of the works to the Common.
- Light and visibility across the Common have been improved by crown lifting the trees along Broad Lane carried out in June 2021
- A new zebra crossing on Wakefield Road to make the journey between school and the Common safer and more pleasant. The zebra crossing will complement the School Street on Walton Road to the east of Earlsmead Primary School and contribute to the Council’s broader objectives of promoting walking and cycling and improving air quality
- Removing the central shrubbery on the Common, which members of the local community told us attracts anti-social behaviour and littering and contributes to low feelings of safety – we will remove the shrubbery in September 2021, following an ecological survey to ensure that biodiversity is protected. Measures to protect biodiversity will be identified by the ecological survey, and may include retaining plants for relocation on the Common. The shrubbery will be replaced with planting grass or meadow
The latest designs are presented in the sketch below.
How to get involved
If you would like to find out more about the plans for Page Green Common, please come along to our drop-in session on Page Green Common on Wednesday 7 July 3-7pm or get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
As an outcome of discussions with the local community, we have 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. We would like to understand the community’s views, which will help us to develop designs for the two spaces and seek funding to deliver the improvements.
How to get involved
There will be two rounds of engagement during summer 2021. We invite you to come along to our drop-in session on Page Green Common on Wednesday 7 July 3-7pm or fill out our short online survey(external link) *Closing Friday 16 July 2021* to tell us your views on Rangemoor Open Space and Page Green Terrace.
After this, we will be working with members of the local community to develop proposals for Rangemoor Open Space and Page Green Terrace, and will present our ideas online and at further drop-in sessions in August/September for feedback from the local community.
Please email email@example.com if you would like to be informed about future opportunities to get involved.
