Maidstone Road Public Space Improvements

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Enfield Council is proposing improvements to the existing modal filters (planters and cameras) at Maidstone Road and Warwick Road.

It is proposed that the area is developed into a space for people to enjoy, with the possibilities of introducing greenery, rain gardens, trees, seating, and play areas.

We are launching a period of engagement to understand the views, concerns, or suggestions residents and other stakeholders have about the proposed project.

The proposed interventions will:

  • Create permanent green infrastructure and enhancing access to green infrastructure
  • Improve walking and cycling access to the area
  • Providing shade in the area.

On this project page you can find:

  • Key project dates in the Key dates section on the right-hand side.
  • Project updates are posted in the Project Updates tab below.
  • A document library on the right-hand side which contain key documents.
  • A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
  • A way to ask us further questions about this project.

  • Construction of Maidstone Road Public Space Improvements Project

    Following approval of the project, construction works will commence at the Warwick Road and Maidstone Road / Warwick Road junction in January 2024 to deliver the Maidstone Road Public Space Improvements project.

    The Maidstone Road / Warwick Road junction and Warwick Road itself at the existing modal filter will be closed at times during the construction period. The construction will be divided in three phases and will occur over approximately 16 weeks.

    Phase 1 will start on Monday 15 January 2024 and will last for approximately 7 weeks. Warwick Road will be closed between Tewkesbury Terrace and the junction with Maidstone Road impacting vehicles which are authorised to drive through the modal filter on Warwick Road (BOW permit holders, Dial-A-Ride vehicles and emergency services). Residents in the area have been notified of the works by letter.

    The works on Warwick Road will involve constructing buildouts that feature rain gardens on both sides of the current modal filter.

    We will send residents further letters with information on phases 2 and 3 of the construction confirming the dates and diversion routes closer to the time. We understand that construction works of this nature can cause some disruption and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We and our contractor work hard to ensure that disruption is minimised where possible whilst the works are undertaken. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.

  • Statutory Consultation - Maidstone Road and Warwick Road

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    In March 2023, we wrote to residents about Enfield Council’s proposal to improve the area around the existing modal filters at the Maidstone Road and Warwick Road junction. We invited you to share your ideas and any issues relating to this project that is being proposed as part of the Journeys and Places programme. This engagement period informed the design for this space that is now being proposed and which aims to deliver a space for people to enjoy featuring greenery and seating.

    The proposed interventions aim to deliver the following:

    • New green areas adjacent to existing modal filters on Maidstone Road and Warwick Road;
    • Planting of new trees;
    • Improvements to the pedestrian facilities at the Maidstone Road and Warwick Road junction; and
    • Creation of a public space that promotes social interaction

    The proposals feature:

    • Provision of a continuous footway to improve pedestrian movement; and
    • Implementation of rain gardens and planting around the existing modal filters.

    To implement these improvements, Enfield Council is proposing changes to waiting, loading and parking restrictions around the Maidstone Road and Warwick Road junction

    More information, including plans of the proposed changes and the draft traffic order can be found on the project page under 'Documents - Traffic order'.
