Bowes East Quieter Neighbourhood

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Enfield Council is working to make the borough safer, healthier and more vibrant, and enable more people to walk, wheel, cycle and access public transport. As part of the Journeys and Places programme, the Council is looking to deliver a Quieter Neighbourhood (QN) in the Bowes East area within the streets bounded by the A406 Bowes Road, Green Lanes, Berkshire Gardens at the boundary with Haringey Council, and Melville Gardens. A map of the proposed QN area, as well as the proposed interventions, can be found in the Document Library.

What is a Quieter Neighbourhood?

Over the last few years, Enfield Council has taken action to re-design many of our streets, introducing new pedestrian crossings, segregated cycle lanes, School Streets and cycle parking alongside other initiatives such as cycle training and free bike repairs. Quieter Neighbourhoods form part of this comprehensive approach that the Council is taking to reduce the speeds and volume of motor vehicles in the area and create an attractive and safe environment for people to travel by active and sustainable modes, such as walking and cycling. The long-term benefits we hope to see include improvements in people’s health, less congestion and safer roads, and improved air quality.

The Council has already introduced two Quieter Neighbourhoods in the Fox Lane and Bowes Primary QN areas.

The Quieter Neighbourhood initiative considers the introduction of features such as:

  • Modal filters that allow people walking and cycling through, as well as emergency services. All streets are accessible by car but some routes may be subject to change;
  • one-way streets;
  • School Streets and;
  • cycle parking.

Why is a Quieter Neighbourhood being proposed in Bowes East?

Bowes East has been chosen as one of the next QN areas because the area has poor air quality compared with other areas in Enfield, poor health and deprivation indicators that could be improved with active travel, two schools within the area and limited areas of open space.

Get involved

The project is currently in the second phase of engagement. We welcome residents and other stakeholders to review our proposed designs and answer a series of survey questions (found below) around these proposals. More information can be found in the tabs below.
