Waltham Cross New Town Square


Broxbourne Council has awarded a contract to transform the vehicle turning area south of the Eleanor Cross monument in Waltham Cross and create a new, high quality, family-friendly town square. The scheme will include seating, new landscaped green spaces, and will be used to hold special community events and markets. The opportunity has been taken for the  New Square to tell the story of  Queen Eleanor's funeral procession to her final resting place in Westminster Abbey. 

The first stage will involve diversions to the underground utility equipment.  Once this is complete, the main paving work can start.  When the contractor's  programme is confirmed, the Council's communication plan will be implemented to ensure that all key stakeholders, businesses and residents are kept fully informed of what is happening and when, in order that disruptions are kept to a minimum.
