Following consideration of responses to statutory consultation, Enfield Council will be implementing an amended version of its proposals for the Fernleigh Road Quieter Neighbourhood. It will also be going ahead with measures to provide safer access to the Salmons Brook Quietway from the A105 at Bush Hill Parade.

The decision to go ahead with both schemes was announced on the Cycle Enfield website at the beginning of August.

The "Fernleigh Road" scheme actually encompasses a large area to the north of Green Lanes, stretching from the Bourne Hill end of Hoppers Road as far as Station Road in Winchmore Hill.  In response to objections from residents, several important features in the original proposals have been dropped:  one-way traffic in Eaton Park Road and Meadowcroft Way, carriageway narrowing affecting several roads, and banned turns into Radcliffe Road and Ringwood Way.

Bury Street west cycle improvements

The features that are retained are an area-wide 20mph limit; speed humps and speed cushions in Fernleigh Road, Woodberry Avenue and Compton Road; and a point no-entry feature in Stonard Road - though this last feature will be implemented on a trial basis initially.

The scheme around the Bury Street West/Church Street junction at Bush Hill Parade will go ahead, again with some changes in response to objections.  Its function is to improve safety for both cyclists and pedestrian wishing to access the new Quietway running towards Edmonton along the Salmons Brook.

The reports prepared by council officers in support of decisions about these two schemes are included in a document on the council website - the Reports Pack for Publication of Decisions List No 9 dated 20 July 2018.  The report on the Fernleigh Road scheme starts on page 7 and is followed immediately by the report on the Church Streets scheme.  Both reports contain information about objections to the schemes and the corresponding responses from council officers.

Fox Lane campaigners welcome response to low-traffic neighbourhood consultation

Following the publication by Enfield Council of a report on its engagement with the public over its proposals for a low-traffic neighbourhood (LTN) in the Fox Lane area, a residents' group which has been campaigning to remove through traffic from the area has commented on its findings, which showed considerable variation in attitudes between the different streets, reflecting the volumes and speeds of traffic using each street.

Residents say Yes to Low Traffic!

As people living in and around Fox Lane await a revised low-traffic neighbourhood proposal from Enfield Council, support for a scheme which would completely rid their streets of the plague of rat-running is growing. At last week's meeting of Fox Lane & District Residents' Association (FLDRA) it was confirmed that the 'Red Poster' group, originally sceptical about excluding through traffic, are now in favour. And on Sunday residents used the opportunity provided by the monthly play street in Amberley Road to gather in the road and say 'Yes to Low Traffic'. Read more

Fox Lane low-traffic neighbourhood: Working towards a compromise

Ahead of a debate at its meeting on Thursday, Fox Lane Residents' Association has published information and views from Enfield Council's Healthy Streets team and the working group of residents that was set up after the January Burford Hall meeting. A new proposal by the working group is largely based on a scheme previously proposed by pro-low traffic neighbourhood campaigners, though the group favours using automatic number plate recognition rather than physical barriers.

FLDRA AGM to be asked to adopt position on Fox Lane low-traffic neighbourhood proposals

While Enfield Council continues to analyse more than 700 consultation responses and work on developing a revised scheme, the plans for a low-traffic neighbourhood (LTN) in the Fox Lane area are likely to be the dominant topic of discussion at next week's Annual General Meeting of the Fox Lane and District Residents' Association (FLDRA). At the meeting, on Thursday 20th February, the FLDRA Committee will be proposing that the Association adopt a formal position calling for a revised plan which, while incorporating traffic calming, would keep as many roads 'open' as possible.
