Fox Lane Area Quieter Neighbourhood

Update: 21st November 2019

Dear Resident,

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.

We invite residents of the Fox Lane and surrounding streets Quieter Neighbourhood to a public exhibition of plans for the area on Tuesday 12 November. This public exhibition will be held from 3pm to 8pm at 305 Green Lanes (former Starbucks), during which time residents may visit to view the plans and speak with the project team. The flyer detailing the Fox Lane and surrounding streets Quieter Neighbourhoods area is available for download in the Document Library to the right of this page.

Dear Residents of Fox Lane and surrounding streets,

Thank you for your continued patience as we have developed ideas to address the shared concerns of ‘rat running’ motor traffic, pollution and safer streets throughout the Fox Lane area.

Over the summer we have developed a robust set of measures that we feel will address these issues. Over the last couple of weeks you may have seen cameras installed around the area. We have updated the data we have on the number of vehicles entering and exiting the whole area. This will provide a fully up-to-date set of baseline data that is more comprehensive then the volume data counts collected earlier in the year by the tubes placed across the roads.

We will shortly be sending out a leaflet to all homes to invite residents to a pop-up engagement event in Palmers Green. We are planing to host this from 3pm to 8pm on a weekday to allow people to drop-in and review the plans, speak to Officers and leave comments. At the same time as the physical event, comments will also be able to be made online.

At this stage, the intention is to implement the plan on an experimental basis. This means that once the measures are put in place, there will be at least a 6 month period where you can provide formal comments on the scheme. Once a minimum of 6 months has passed, we will then review these comments and formally respond to the issues raised in a report for the scheme. Based on this report, a further decision will then be taken on whether to implement the scheme as per the trial, to make some adjustments or to remove the scheme entirely.

We have set-up the opportunity to ‘subscribe’ to the Fox Lane project. If you do this, as well as receiving notification through the door, as soon as details of the pop-up event are confirmed we will e-mail you to let you know.

Residents and business owners within the Fox Lane area are encouraged to subscribe.
