""It's astounding that despite several other options and in the face of fierce local opposition, Enfield Council has persisted in pushing on with this farce. I can only suppose that the reason is because they can undertake work on the main roads under the guise of the cycle scheme and use the money granted from the London Mayor to effectively finance maintenance rather than find the money out of their own highways budget.

SHAME ON YOU ENFIELD COUNCIL for your disgraceful undemocratic and unconstitutional behaviour.

Decoplast recently did some work for me - re-plastering part of an interior wall that was cracked and then redecorating the room. They responded promptly to my initial enquiry and visited me to understand what needed doing. The quote arrived when they said it would - and was very reasonable. They started the work quickly and finished when they promised. The work was done to a very good standard and Michael and his team were very professional and left the room in a very clean state, I am planning to use them again.

Proposed Parliamentary Constitency

Boundary Changes




"In Enfield, we noted that the borough

was too large for two constituencies. We

propose an Enfield constituency, which

retains seven wards from the existing

Enfield North constituency, and adds

Grange ward from the existing Enfield,

Southgate constituency. Our proposed

Edmonton constituency retains seven

wards from the existing constituency,

and includes the ward of Palmers Green

from the existing Enfield, Southgate

constituency. We believe that this

reconfiguration provides for improved

road connections within the constituency,

particularly with the Bush Hill Park ward

that lies to the west of the A10"

Trent Park Secret War Museum




"The beautiful Grade II listed mansion and heritage grounds at the heart of Trent Country Park (North London), used in WW2 by British Intelligence spies for its secret war against Nazi Germany, was recently purchased by the Berkeley Group and looks set to become a housing development within the Green Belt. Its future as a public asset is uncertain.

Support our campaign to ensure a museum is established within the mansion house to ensure future generations can learn about the critical role this place played in our nation's history".
