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 If the Council fail to achieve this, the funding can be withdrawn and any future funding put at risk.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 is 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.

Installation of road closures to motor vehicles is now completed at the following locations:

  • Maidstone Road at its junction with Warwick Road
  • York Road at its junction with Brownlow Road
  • Palmerston Road northbound at its junction with the A406 North Circular Road
  • Existing width restriction on Warwick Road, near its junction with Maidstone Road, replaced with point closure for all vehicles except for emergency vehicles and service vehicles

Please see the FAQs here.

The statutory consultation for the scheme ran from Monday 28th September 2020 and will close on Sunday 2nd May 2021. There is now a further opportunity to share further comments on the trial. This opportunity will close on Sunday 21 November 2021. Please make your objection or representation in writing stating the grounds on which it is being made and quoting the reference TG52/1454. You can send this via one of the following means:

  • By email to HealthyStreets@enfield.gov.uk, or
  • By writing to ATTN Healthy Streets, Enfield Council, Silver St, Enfield, EN1 3XA.

If you would like a copy of this information or the flyer in a language other than English, in a large print or in braille, please email healthystreets@enfield.gov.uk.

Under the current Covid-19 circumstances it is not possible to hold a public event for the community to discuss the detail of the plans with Council Officers. Therefore to help provide more insight, we have produced a video to help explain the proposals in more detail. This can be viewed at the communities convenience here.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    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, alongside Ward Councillors and Bambos Charalambous MP who presented a petition to Parliament in 2018. This trial is a response to those concerns.

    The trial 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 will be a range of assessments made when judging the overall success of this trial, which includes:

    • Residents’ views on how the benefits of the scheme compare against the disadvantages
    • Data on the volume of motor vehicle movements in the area
    • Data on the speed of motor vehicles in the area
    • Impacts on the primary roads surrounding the area
    • Air quality considerations
    • Bus journey time considerations through discussion with Transport for London
    • Outcomes of ongoing dialogue with the Emergency Services

    The project is implemented as a trial using experimental traffic orders (ETO) which includes the consultation with community during the trial period.

    Now that the community have had the opportunity to experience the trial working in practice, we would like to invite you to share your feedback. We will be reviewing feedback through the consultation period and there is the ability to amend the scheme during the trial period.
