The Town Centre Development Team manages the three town centres in the north of the borough: Nag’s Head, Archway and Finsbury Park. Angel is managed separately through a Business Improvement District known as Angel.London.
The Town Centre Development Team works to create a coordinated and integrated approach to service delivery across the town centres. Working closely with local Town Centre Management Groups (TCMG’s) and other local business fora the team plays an important function in the council’s broader place-making, skills, employment and business support agendas. Core functions include:
Support, facilitation and capacity building of local business/town centre networks
Partnership working with a range of internal and external partners to promote cleaner, safer and greener town centres
Identifying and facilitating business support packages to encourage economic growth and local employment
Partnership working with planning departments, Transport for London and developers to co-ordinate infrastructure improvements and manage developments within our town centres to create a balanced commercial, social and recreational offer for the local community.
