logoThe exhibtion at the Fox last weekend marked the start of the 12-week consultation period during which members of the public are invited to give their views on the plans for cycle lanes between Enfield Town and Palmers Green.

Unfortunately, it's not as easy as it should be to find the relevant information on the Enfield Council website, so here's a short guide with direct links.

The start page for consultation is, where you can watch the short video shown below.

The same page has a link to a huge PDF file with detailed drawings of the entire route.  Laptops or desktop computers should have no difficulty handling this file, but there have been complaints that the file is too big for some tablet computers.

The actual online consultation is divided up into questions about the entire scheme and questions about each leg of the route.  An online scrollable drawing is included for each section - but again, there are problems with tablet computers.  Tablet users can download each drawing separately, but the best advice would be to use a laptop if possible.  You don't need to complete the consultation in one go - you can answer some of the questions, save what you've done, then come back to it later.  You can also contact the Council and ask them to send you paper drawings and a hard copy questionnaire.

The fact that there is so much time to complete the survey means that you don't have to do it immediately.  There's time to talk to others about the scheme, visit the further exhibitions planned for the Triangle and the Palmers Green Festival, and generally mull over the radical ideas that are involved.  Naturally, we welcome contributions to our discussion forums, whether pro or anti.  The Cycle Enfield discussions have their own category - visit this page to read the messages.

The scheme is also being discussed on the Bowes & Bounds Connected website.  Richard McKeever, who runs B&B Connected, has kicked off with a very thoughtful post.

Joining forces to challenge local politicians to create My Liveable London
