Your feedback on the Angel Walk project

Enfield Council conducted early engagement on designs for walking and cycling improvements at Angel Walk from 13th August to 15th September 2019. The purpose of this was to share our designs with the public to help shape our plans. Leaflets were distributed to properties close to the area and the opportunity for wider comment was promoted via social media and the Councils walking and cycling e-newsletter (in excess of 5,000 sign-ups). The leaflet provided an overview of the proposals and provided a link to the Council website where drawings could be viewed/downloaded and an online survey gave residents the opportunity to leave comments. Paper copies of the consultation document were available and issued to those that made a request.

Overall, there were a total of 190 visitors to the project page (of that, 162 were unique visitors). There were a total of 77 document downloads which resulted in 8 individual written responses to the engagement. All of the respondents were positive about the proposals. The key issue raised was the design approach to shared use. In particular, one respondent outlined the approach used in Kingston on the New Malden route where the walking and cycling space is separated by a green strip. Prior and during the engagement phase Council Officers and Transport for London (the project sponsors) were already discussing adjustments to the design to take this approach. The feasibility of this has been assessed and will now be implemented. No other issues were raised.

Project background

Enfield Council is looking to develop Angel Walk. This project along with its associated parallel zebra crossing across Montagu Road will provide a pathway for the public to help link Edmonton Green and Meridian Water Station.

The Angel Gardens site was a vacant piece of Council-owned land that was subject to extensive fly tipping and a cause for concern for residents in the area. In 2015 the site was developed into a public space that included sensory play and growing areas for the wider public to utilise. Previous community engagement demonstrated that residents supported the concept of a new public open space incorporating a pathway that connects Angel Road Railway Station (now replaced by Meridian Water Railway Station) and the existing pathway north-west of the site that continues to Edmonton Green.

The Angel Walk project, and it’s associated parallel zebra facility across Montagu Road, seeks to build on the gains generated by the Angel Gardens project and provide the pathway link for the public between Edmonton Green and Meridian Water Railway Station.

The current scope of the project includes:

  • installing a parallel zebra facility across Montagu Road extending the facilities already present along Cemetery Walk
  • installing a welcoming gesture to Angel Walk at it’s interface with Montagu Road
  • introducing a lit walking and cycling link within the formally redundant site linking to the Angel Gardens play space and the ramp leading to Conduit Lane
  • removing the parapet barrier at interface with Conduit Lane
  • management of overland flow paths to better manage flood waters in significant rainfall events
  • maintaining where possible the wide variety of flora and fauna currently present on the site
  • long term management of invasive species found on the site.

We would like your feedback on the plans currently proposed for the project. Please find the drawing of proposed plans in the Consultation Flyer available for download in the Document Library to the right of this page.

A statutory consultation on the installation of the parallel zebra crossing facility across Montagu Road will follow in the coming months.
