Update 21 November 2019
Thank you for your feedback on the initial Low Traffic Neighbourhood proposal for the Fox Lane area following the engagement event on the 12th November 2019.
We are aware there has been much interest in the proposals and in view of the different opinions that have been voiced, we have extended the engagement period to the 22nd December 2019.
The initial proposal remains available online and following feedback to date, we anticipate revisions to this proposal, a key theme so far being concerns around entry and exit points into the area.
The council is committed to addressing ‘rat-running’ and reducing pollution levels in the long-term, but any proposal must be the right solution for your area, one that works for the local community. A future trial should ensure that traffic is not just moved from one local residential street within the area to another.
All comments will be carefully considered before we decide on the next steps and any scheme would be introduced as a ‘live trial’, allowing us to make changes in light of feedback from residents.
Any trial will not start before Spring 2020 and would only be considered as a permanent change if it improves the situation for local people and works for local business.
Updates and the opportunity for further engagement will continue to be published on the engagement hub for this project. A summary of the feedback and how a future trial may look is anticipated early in the New Year.
We welcome your continued input to the process.

Deputy Leader of Enfield Council
