The lists below are based on data collected by Enfield Council in late November/early December 2018 - baseline data for comparing with data which will collected after implementation of the Fox Lane Quieter Neighbourhood scheme and be used to judge its effectiveness.

The data was collected in three separate batches at ten (or in one case eleven) points, as shown on the maps.  The numbers shown are totals for vehicles in both directions over the week-long collection period, maximum speeds for the week etc.

What next for the Fox Lane quieter neighbourhood?

It was standing room only at last week's open meeting of Fox Lane & District Resident's Association (FLDRA) as people from the Association's catchment area (and some from further afield) flocked in, hoping to discover what Enfield Council has in mind for the Fox Lane Quieter Neighbourhood scheme, now that the planters experiment has been officially declared a failure.
