Improving Palmers Green

on Wednesday, 28 July 2010. Posted in N21 Community


Improving Our Place is a community group, centred around Palmers Green, which is starting to make a positive impact on the local area.




 

Here's how they describe their remit on their website, which is still new:

IMPROVING OUR PLACE is a campaigning group keen to improve the quality of life in and around Palmers Green, and which believes it could be a better place in which to live, work and study. Whether it's a greener environment with more trees and planted areas, better managed and safer traffic, a stronger sense of community and belonging, a thriving cultural life, or better local facilities and shopping, we think there is scope for improvement.

The group is working alongside local residents associations, local councillors and other local interest groups, to kickstart community initiatives.  It is focusing its attention on 4 main areas:

 

Traffic calming and improving the high streets, including Green Lanes;

 

The new Broomfield Community Orchard, in conjunction with The Friends of Broomfield Oark and the protection of street trees

 

Arts & Culture;

 

Biodiversity and open spaces

 

Supporting local business

 

The Improving Our Place team also did a great job in kick starting the Big Lunch in Palmers Green, leafleting in the area and co-ordinating planning and street closure applications.

 

Moving forward, the IOP team are keen to build on the arts and cultural events which are already taking place in Palmers Green, which already has an established annual Green Lanes festival and the Palmers Green Festival, held in Broomfield Park.

 

The group meets informally at The Woodman (backroom) on the second Monday of the month at 8.30pm and guests are welcome.

The objectives of Improving Our Place are very similiar to those of n21online and we are looking at ways of sharing expertise and resources to have more clout and reach out to more people inthe local area.  Areas of particular interest include ways of supporting our local traders, exploring the idea for a local loyalty card.
