Enfield Council are in the process of delivering a series of measures in the Connaught Gardens area as part of the Quieter Neighbourhood project.

The aim of this scheme is to address shared concerns between both residents and the Council on motor traffic speeds, motor traffic volumes, and cut-through traffic in the area. A set of interventions is being delivered to address the concerns raised by residents for many years. The scheme will help address the issue on an area-wide basis and bring about the following benefits:

  • Reduction in the volume of motor traffic that is cutting through residential streets instead of using other primary roads to reach their destinations.
  • Reduction in the speeds that people drive at on the residential streets and in front of the schools within the area.
  • Quieter residential areas with reduced traffic levels, whilst keeping open the maximum possible access points for residents and emergency services.
  • A safer environment which will enable people to walk and cycle from their front door and encourage them to incorporate active travel as part of their journeys.
  • Reduction in emissions from motor vehicles within the residential area and therefore an improvement air quality.
  • Long-term improvements to public health and reduced pressure on the NHS.
