UPDATE FROM DAVID BURROWES MP ON THE PROPOSED BOUNDARY COMMISSION CHANGES

 

Thanks to all those who responded to the first consultation by the Boundary Commission and made respresentations to oppose the plan to break up the constituency of Enfield Southgate and create a new Finchley and Southgate seat. We now have the opportunity in a second consultation to make any further comments.

 

This consultation runs until the 27th March and all representations can be viewed at:

This is what you can do:


1) If you have not made any submission to the Boundary Commission this is your last chance!

 

Please use this link which takes you to the representations of David Burrowes MP and the "Save Our Southgate" campaign which has made a counter proposal to retain Enfield Southgate

Add your own comment. You may like to write something like the following in your own words:

 

"I support the counter proposal of David Burrowes MP and Save Our Southgate which respects the historical, geographical, community and transportation links of my area. The current Boundary Commission proposal would disintegrate Parliamentary representation of Enfield and I would refer the Commission to the conclusion of the 6th Boundary Review which made much more sense. I would urge the Commission to take account of the significant support for Save Our Southgate's counter proposals from around 900 individual representations which comes from Enfield Council, cross party, community groups, residents associations, and businesses. It is marked that there is very little support for the proposed new constituency of Finchley and Southgate. Not one community, resident, business or political organisation is advocating for this new constituency."

"I would urge the Commission to take account of the significant support for David Burrowes MP's and Save Our Southgate's counter proposals from around 900 individual representations which comes from Enfield Council, cross party, community groups, residents associations, and businesses. Grange ward needs to be considered as a whole and be retained in Enfield Southgate. The polling district YJB which is closest to Enfield Town and which has always been part of Grange Ward is a relatively recent addition to Enfield Southgate.

 

Since 2010 it has benefitted from being connected to Enfield Southgate and linked to the predominant geographical, demographic, educational, and transportation links of the rest of Grange Ward. I would refer the Commission to the conclusion of the 6th Boundary Review which made much more sense. The current biggest local issue facing Grange Ward is the introduction of a cycle lane scheme. It has highlighted the connection of all of Grange Ward via the A105 from Enfield Town (YJB) through Grange Park to Winchmore Hill and Palmers Green and the need for cohesive representation by our MP in relation to issues that have a local, regional and national dimension.

 

Grange Ward has the key transportation link of Enfield Chase rail line through to Grange Park and then Winchmore Hill which reflects community links to the constituency of Enfield Southgate through residents associations, community groups, churches, and school catchment areas."

"I would urge the Commission to take account of the significant support for David Burrowes MP's and Save Our Southgate's counter proposals from around 900 individual representations which comes from Enfield Council, cross party, community groups, residents associations, and businesses. Bush Hill Park ward should be moved into Enfield Southgate. I would refer the Commission to the conclusion of the 6th Boundary Review which supports this move and made much more sense.


Bush Hill Park has stronger community, cultural and transportation ties to Enfield Southgate than Edmonton. The barrier of the A10 impacts upon community cohesion and demography. Bush Hill Park is increasingly isolated and distinct from the needs of communities in Edmonton and has a stronger affinity with Enfield Southgate and would benefit from parliamentsry representation within this constituency."


 


 

4) If you have already made a submission or particularly want Palmers Green to be retained in Enfield Southgate and not be moved to Edmonton you may like to use this link

"I would urge the Commission to take account of the significant support for David Burrowes MP's and Save Our Southgate's counter proposals from around 900 individual representations which comes from Enfield Council, cross party, community groups, residents associations, and businesses. Palmers Green ward should be retained in Enfield Southgate and not moved into Edmonton. I would refer the Commission to the conclusion of the 6th Boundary Review which supports this and made much more sense.


Palmers Green has strong historic, geographical, transportation and community ties to Southgate. Broomfield Park, Old Southgate Town Hall, Green Lanes, Palmers Green Station and the rail link to Winchmore Hill and Bowes Park, schools, residents and community groups all represent a case of community cohesion within Enfield Southgate constituency. The main community, cultural and business interests of Palmers Green point to the existing wards of Enfield Southgate not Edmonton. The A10 is a significant barrier and boundary which impacts the cohesion and demography of the area. Palmers Green is a cohesive community which is distinct from Edmonton and would become isolated if it was moved to Edmonton."
