The Fox Lane scheme is been delivered as trial, to help determine a future decision on whether any amendments are required, whether the trial should be removed or whether the scheme should be made permanent. The decision report for this trial to commence is here.

This project is part of a Borough wide programme, which aims to:
  • reduce the volume of motor traffic in residential neighbourhoods
  • reduce the speeds that people drive at on our residential streets
  • reduce the ability for people driving to 'rat run' through residential streets
  • improve the liveability, amenity and safety of our neighbourhoods
  • enable

  • reduce the ability for people driving to 'rat run' through residential streets
  • improve the liveability, amenity and safety of our neighbourhoods
  • enable residents to walk and cycle safely from their front door, to connect with public transport or major walking and cycling routes
  • increase the health and wellbeing of residents and strengthen community cohesion

Quieter Neighbourhoods and the wider Healthy Streets programme is intended to achieve Council aims to see more people walking, cycling or using public transport for short trips in the borough. Long-term benefits will include better public health, reduced pressures on the NHS, less motor vehicle pollution and improved air quality, which will also help deal with the declared climate emergency.

  • Residents in the Fox Lane & Surrounding Streets Quieter Neighbourhood Area have raised concerns with Enfield Council over traffic issues in the area for many years. This trial is a response to those concerns. 

    The trial is being funded from the Transport for London Streetspace Programme, an initiative that has been launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

    There will be a range of assessments made when judging the overall success of this trial, which includes: 

    • Residents’ views on how the benefits of the scheme compare against the disadvantages 
    • Data on the volume of motor vehicle movements in the area 
    • Data on the speed of motor vehicles in the area 
    • Impacts on the primary roads surrounding the area 
    • Air quality considerations 
    • Bus journey time considerations through discussion with Transport for London 
    • Outcomes of ongoing dialogue with the Emergency Services 

    The project is implemented as a trial using experimental traffic orders (ETO) which includes the consultation with community during the trial period. 

    Now that the community have had the opportunity to experience the trial working in practice, we would like to invite you to share your feedback. We will be reviewing feedback through the consultation period and there is the ability to amend the scheme during the trial period.
