Improvements to Page Green Common, Page Green Terrace and Rangemoor Open Space
Haringey Council is working with muf architects and members of the local community on improvements to 3 green spaces near Seven Sisters station: Page Green Common, Rangemoor Open Space and Page Green Terrace.
Page Green Common
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.
Following engagement with the local community in 2018-19 and 2021, we are pleased to inform you that we are delivering the first phase of improvements to Page Green Common, which are currently onsite will complete in early March 2023. The improvements will celebrate the history of the Common, improve safety, and create a welcoming environment for local residents, families and schoolchildren.
The improvements are shown within the red line in the sketch below.

Rangemoor Open Space
As an outcome of discussions with the local community, we 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.
The improvements started on site and are expected to take around 6 weeks to complete.
They have been designed together with Earlsmead Primary School, Priscilla Wakefield Nursing Home, and the Page Green Residents Association, as well as broader members of the local community. They aim to invite the widest range of residents to use Rangemoor for play, rest, socialising, or gardening, by making it welcoming and accessible to those of all ages and abilities.
The below plan shows the final design, which includes:
- Three new lighting columns positioned at the entrances
- Basket swing play equipment
- New benches
- New brick planters for gardening, designed to be accessible to all members of the community
- Repairing the pavement
- Replacing the entrance gates with bollards to enable easier access for wheelchairs, prams and other users
- Replacing the bins
- New sensory planting and crown lifting the trees to improve biodiversity
- New, accessible entrance to the games area (MUGA) close to Rangemoor Road.
Page Green Terrace
The improvements - which have been designed through our work with the local community in 2021 - focus on care and repair. Page Green Terrace will be planted as a biodiverse corridor, bringing colour to the High Road and supporting local ecology.
The first stage of improvement works was completed in early July 2022:
- Removal of broken fence
- Pavement resurfacing to improve accessibility
Stage 2 works will be carried out in winter/spring 2022/23 and include:
- Trimming of hedges (November)
- New meadow planting (November), including temporary fencing to protect the seeded meadow, to be in place until late spring/early summer 2023
- Repairs to hedges (March)
- Replacement of benches (March)
We will also be installing new signage for Page Green Terrace at a later date.
