Overview

We’re working with residents to make our streets quieter and safer through our Quieter Neighbourhoods project. Residents in the Bowes Primary & Surrounding Streets Quieter Neighbourhood Area have raised concerns with Enfield Council over traffic issues in the area for many years. In 2019 the Council engaged residents in the Bowes Primary & Surrounding Streets Quieter Neighbourhood Area through a Perception Survey to better understand the issues that they were experiencing. In total, 263 residents participated and provided these top responses:

• Concerns about streets being used as rat-runs;

• Concerns about speed and volume of traffic; and

• Concerns about pollution.

The full findings from the survey can be downloaded via the Document Library to the right of this page.

Delivering a trial

We have listened to the concerns raised and have developed a plan for the area that can be trialled to see how effective it is at addressing the issues we have heard. To view the plan, please download the flyer via the Document Library.

This project is being funded from the first tranche of the Department for Transport Emergency Active Travel Fund, an initiative that has been launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are several conditions related to this funding, which includes the requirement to implement temporary measures within 8 weeks. If the Council fail to achieve this, the funding can be withdrawn and any future funding put at risk.

Given the necessity to move quickly, we will be implementing this project throughout August and September 2020.

The project will be implemented as a trial using experimental traffic orders. Residents will be able to provide feedback once they have had the opportunity to experience the trial working in practice.

The initial trial will run for 6 months before being reviewed, however the trial could be extended to a maximum of 18 months. At the end of the review period, a decision will be made on whether to remove the trial, make changes and extend the trial or make the project permanent. This decision will be informed by the community feedback collected throughout the consultation during the trial period.

Share your comments once the trial is implemented

Once further planning work is completed, a letter will be sent to all properties within the area providing more information on specific timelines, along with detail on how feedback can be provided as part of the formal consultation process. This information will also be available on this page. To subscribe for updates on this project, please click ‘Subscribe’ on the widget at the top right of this page and enter your email address.

We have recently updated the Frequently Asked Questions on this page. Please see the FAQs here.

If you would like a copy of the flyer in a language other than English, please email healthystreets@enfield.gov.uk.
