    New River is a canal. Enfield wants a mini-Holland. Put the cycle route off road along the straight and traffic free new river canal. Keep green lanes commercial district alive.

    I would like to tell you the concerns of me and other people of my age, and older, regarding this idea of no parking in Green Lanes. Cycling is a wonderful idea, for those who can do it and are fit enough to do it, but especially in this part of the world, there are a serious number of elderly people who cannot walk that far, though age, infirmity or whatever and those who, like me, cannot carry heavy shopping, etc. who will have to abandon the local shops if parking is not allowed on Green Lanes. It will then turn into a ghost town; Enfield itself is already suffering from empty shops – I was horrified to notice at least five empty as I went through Enfield on the W9 this week. We don’t all want to shop in large superstores and prefer the personal service which can usually be found in smaller, family or owner-run shops.

    I already hardly ever go into Enfield because I object to having to pay to park in my own neighbourhood when I want to perhaps only pop into one of the shops in the precinct. I used to go in quite regularly on a Sunday, purely because parking was then free!

    We have started to think more about local shopping in the last couple of years, I think it is part of a trend, rejecting the big supermarkets and all their tricks. However it is true if there isn't any parking space we won't bother to stop at the butcher but just use Sainsbury's. I am sure we are not alone

    We’ve got the “N21 Live Local” bag and always try to make a point of buying locally when we can. We have found there’s an amazing variety of goods available locally. Even when we were renovating our house we were surprised by what was on hand. We not only got the satisfaction of buying local but in many cases we got better prices and service than using an online or distant retailer. For example Hond & Langer did all our glass & mirror work which involved multiple measurings and fittings for a price that far and away beat anything I could find elsewhere. Meanwhile guys from The Brassware Company came out to our house to help us select the right door fittings and matched prices I found online.

    For very good reasons, I am disabled and a legitimate badge holder. Cyclists should have safe routes, why not alternative roads, which are residential and do not affect the businesses (shops etc) which rely on PARKING
