Edgware faces the challenge of high street decline, which is affecting shoppers attitude, as they are choosing alternative shopping centres. To mitigate against this, Edgware Town Team are keen to enhance the town centre by beautifying the high street with flowers and greenery. This will compliment and add value to St Margaret Church’s nature conservation project, which will create a new community sanctuary for all with beautiful and sensory flowers including a lavender border along the high street. We will add hanging baskets and flower boxes to make the high street welcoming and presentable to encourage people to feel positive and add civic pride. This will discourage Anti social behaviour and increase a sense of ownership and well-being. Being within a mile of beautiful parks and countryside, we are seeking to bring this atmosphere close to the town centre to gain rural benefits within the urban environment. We want to increase community participation and involvement.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install Hanging baskets, Flower boxes and planters along the town centre
  • Add solar lighting onto existing trees to add atmopshere
  • To extend the previous greening project further down the high street

Why it's a great idea:

This project will aim to increase interaction between residents and businesses within the Town Centre. It will counter act against ASB including littering. It will increase economic footfall, dwell time and make the Town Centre more aesthetically pleasing when people visit and encourage them to return.

Steps to get it done:

  • Spring/Summer planting
  • Autumn/Winter Planting

This is a tried and tested method which was successful in the past however due to lack of funds it had to be discontinued. Residents and businesses continue to to be nostalgic about periods when the flowers where in place and Edgware was a more vibrant place to visit.
