Pheonix canariensis

    hi and welcome to the Forum. 
    I'd say they're fine in a bigger plastic pot. You see them for sale in specialist nurseries in plastic pots with roots bulging around them so it should be fine and will "tell" you when it needs moving again.

    Many thanks for your kind reply, is there a suggested size for this type of poem to be reported? Or should I re-put it in stages?
    I have put up a photo of it so people can see it

    thank you for letting me know! 
    I was meant to be asking is it okay to re pot  this palm and should I do it in stages, or can I go just to a much larger pot? And if so what recommendation of size would there be?

    Impressive specimen. As you can see , they're happy in a tight pot, don't go mad and move it into something much bigger, as tempting as it might be
