Update 4th January 2022

A decision on the Bowes Primary and Surrounding Streets Quieter Neighbourhood (QN) has been published and can be found here. The decision has been made by the Leader of Enfield Council to make the traffic orders permanent. This means that the measures that have been trialled in the Bowes Primary QN will stay in place.

This decision has been made in the knowledge that:

  • A subsequent report is to be produced as soon as possible which explores mitigation measures to improve access for residents with disabilities through potential exemptions and includes consideration of those with caring responsibilities.

  • A subsequent report is produced which recommends the implementation of a School Street at Bowes Primary.

  • The filter on Maidstone Road at its junction with Warwick Road is amended from a bollard to camera controlled filter, increasing permeability for any exemptions, including the emergency services.

  • The filter on Maidstone Road at its junction with Warwick Road is reviewed to determine whether further public realm improvements could be implemented at this location.

  • A review is undertaken of traffic speed and volume on the unclassified roads, monitored as part of this project, that are outside the Bowes QN area. This will inform the potential residential areas of focus for further QN style interventions.

  • A post-project monitoring plan is developed to continue to carry out some high-level monitoring in this area of the Borough.

  • A decision on the implementation of a bus gate on Brownlow Road is taken when further monitoring has occurred following the implementation of Haringey’s Bounds Green LTN, enabling a full assessment of network impact.

  • Measures to improve an East / West walking and cycling route through the area are investigated.

This decision has been made following a trial in the area since September 2020 including a period of statutory consultation and monitoring activities. The decision is subject to call-in as per Council’s scrutiny process. More information on this process can be found here. A letter will be delivered to residents this week to inform them of this decision, a copy of the letter is here.
