Clean Air Route

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

Enfield Council are developing a series of interventions on and around Grove Street N18 and St. John & St. James’ Church of England Primary School as part of a wider regeneration project around Fore Street, Angel Edmonton. The project is funded by the Greater London Authority (GLA) through the Good Growth Fund (GGF). The proposed interventions aim to deliver the following:

  • Improved air quality outside the St. John & St. James’ Church of England Primary School gates;
  • Improved road safety;
  • Contribution towards an increase of physical activity levels;
  • Enhanced public realm;
  • Improved access to the proposed affordable workspaces at the Grove Street garage yard site;
  • An educational campaign to encourage walking and cycling to school.

The interventions we are exploring feature:

  • A school street on Grove Street outside St. John & St. James’ Primary School to remove motor traffic from the school gates on either a permanent basis, or during school opening and closing times.
  • An active travel route between the junction of Grove Street with Fore Street and the railway overbridge at Joyce Avenue to improve accessibility and connectivity of the active travel network and provide an opportunity for a potential future connection with Silver Street Overground station in the North, Meridian Water in the East, and North Middlesex Hospital in the West.
  • Social infrastructure and place making on Grove Street with a new civic triangle at the junction between the garage yard workspace, St. John and St. James’ Primary School and Mount of Praise Church where people can sit, rest, and come together.

    We would like to invite you to join us on Friday 23rd July 2021 between 10:00 and 18:00 outside St John and St James Primary School on Grove Street to see and discuss our proposals for a future Clean Air Route. Come and get involved in helping us shape the exciting changes to come.

    On the same day, the primary school students will get involved with several interactive activities, including developing ideas with the design team for the street outside the school and exploring how Grove Street might feel without cars. To make this happen, a part of Grove Street will be temporarily closed to motorised traffic between 09:00 and 19:00. The approximate extents of the closure can be seen on the below map.

    During these hours the parking bays located within the closure will be suspended. All properties will continue to be accessible through either of Langhedge Lane, Snell’s Road, and Grove Street depending on where they are located. There will be diversion signs in place providing information about the alternative routes to access all properties in the area.

    We hope this information is helpful and we apologise for any inconvenience that this temporary closure may cause. If you have any questions or concerns please email us at healthystreets@enfield.gov.uk.
