Planning Consent Application Approved

On Tuesday 19 September 2023, the Enfield Town to Broxbourne Walking and Cycling Route scheme was presented to the Planning Committee, following a previous deferral at a Planning Committee Briefing in April 2023.

The planning consent was to assess the section of the route along the New River between Tenniswood Road and Bullsmoor Lane. This will provide a key link between Enfield Town and Broxbourne, complete the green chain missing link, contribute towards a long term increase in the levels of active travel by expanding the borough wide network and enable the community to make greater use of the New River.

Since the previous deferral the design was updated to include additional screening planting and to remove a bench seat proposed along the New River between Tenniswood Road and Carterhatch Lane.

The Planning Committee voted to approve the application at the committee meeting on 19 September 2023.

The key next steps for the project are confirming additional funding for the project, submitting a minor planning application for the New River route between Bullsmoor Lane and the M25 junction, procuring a contractor and commencing construction in approximately Spring 2024.

We will provide further updates as we progress through these key next steps.
