The Fox Lane LTN consultion has closed.

Enfield Council was given an undertalking that

the LTN trial will be evaluated based on:

* Residents' views on how the benefits of the project compare against the disbenefits

 

* 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

 

* Bus journey time considerations through discussion with Transport for London

 

* Outcomes of ongoing dialogue with the emergency services.

Fifty shows with ELODS

Fifty shows with ELODS

                            

 

 

 

 

On 22 March Mark Newport will take up the baton for his 50th show with Winchmore Hill based amateur theatre group ELODS, conducting Thoroughly Modern Millie.  The show will run from 22-26 March at the Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Bar. 


Mark’s 26 year personal commitment to ELODS is mirrored in his professional life where he’s spent nearly 20 years working on the hit musical Les Miserables.  In that time he’s had a variety of jobs including conducting the show on tour and a spell as Associate Musical Director at the Queen’s Theatre, the show’s West End home.  He’s been involved in several community activities for Les Miserables, including concerts of the show, master classes, TV competitions and school productions as well as regular rehearsals for cast changes and understudies.  And he’s also worked on a string of other hit musicals, including Sunset Boulevard, Phantom of the Opera, Starlight Express, Cats and Chicago.  


Performing so many different musicals with ELODS means that every six months Mark has to learn a new score and coach principals and chorus members through the songs.  He also has to recruit an orchestra of professional musicians to play for the week the show is running.  But Mark thrives on this constant challenge. 


“The cast will rehearse with me for months before each show” Mark says about his rehearsal schedule.  “But the musicians only join us the week the show goes on.  That makes the two days before our opening night pretty intensive, but also great fun as the orchestra learn their parts and the cast get used to singing with them.  Their professionalism always shows through, and they always pull off a great performance”. 


For Mark, it has always been important to work with his local community.   He has taken his enthusiasm for music making into teaching in primary and junior schools, college, University and some of the country’s top drama schools.  In November last year Mark organised a concert at his local school in aid of Children in Need.  In typical style, he drafted in soloists from Les Mis as well as from ELODS to sing with the school choir.  For all involved it was a fun and very special day.  He has also used his West End contacts to bring the Resident Director of Les Miserables to North London for a master class in musical theatre with ELODS.  


“It’s surprising how many of the same basic ideas and techniques can be used throughout”, Mark said about his professional work and his role with ELODS.  “Les Miserables has given me lots of experiences that hopefully I can pass on to ELODS, but equally I have learned things at ELODS which have helped me in my West End career.”

This council has a lot to answer for writes Marie Shepherd

This council has a lot to answer for writes Marie Shepherd
This letter written by Southgate resident Marie Shepherd, who lives within the Fox Lane LTN, was published in the Enfield Independent on July 21.2021. It encapsulates ALL that is wrong with this experimental scheme - but most of all the divisive impact on the local community and the negative rather than positive climate change impact. 
 
I refer to your front page story on 14 July 2021 “Council faces traffic challenge”
 
The Fox Lane LTN scheme was flawed not only because a key document was published late but also because no proper consultation with the residents took place. 
 
The Fox Lane scheme has been described in different terms at different times by the Council.  It started out being called a Quieter Neighbourhood (QN) which then morphed into a Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) but in more recent times has reverted to being called a Quieter Neighbourhood.  The reality is that this area which was always known as the Lakes Estate is now a Private Estate, an area to be used exclusively by residents of 11 roads closed off with bollards and planters instead of the traditional gates.  It was rushed through without proper consultation. The Council blamed COVID for the haste but if it was honest it would admit it was because Councillors  knew that in its present form it would never be accepted by the majority in any consultation.
 
Because of the creation of the Private Estate many hundreds of other Enfield residents who live on the residential boundary roads and side roads that feed onto the boundary roads, now endure a life of hell at times as they have become conveyor belts for all the displaced traffic. 
 
We are constantly being reminded that we are living in a climate crisis.  Channelling so much traffic onto a handful of roads, thereby creating long, slow-moving conveyor belts of vehicles with the resulting very poor air-quality, is adding to the climate crisis and it is surprising that those charged with protecting the environment at Enfield Council fail to grasp that point.  The Council is not delivering on protecting the environment.  It is both failing and falling out with its electorate.
 
The QN does nothing for the environment, nothing to combat climate change, nothing to reduce traffic in the area, nothing to improve air quality, nothing to reduce emissions, nothing to encourage people to walk, nothing to address women’s safety. It has had one big success.  It has divided the community by creating bitterness, alienation and inequality.  The loud voice of the pro QN minority has invaded and intruded upon a previously happy, harmonious, co-operative and peaceful community. It fills me with immense sadness.  This Council has a lot to answer for.
 
Yours faithfully,
Marie Shepherd
Southgate

Enfield Council switched over legal documents hoping no-one would notice.

Enfield Council switched over legal documents hoping no-one would notice.
 
 
One Community – Against Fox lane LTN
 
Tuesday 8 June 2021
 
Enfield Council – Experimental Traffic Fraudsters - Enfield Council switched over legal documents hoping no-one would notice
 
When Enfield Council published its Experimental Traffic Order (ETO) in respect of the Fox Lane Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) on 26 August 2020, it failed to give a Statement of Reasons with the ETO. It is a legal requirement to keep the statement of reasons available for inspection throughout the whole experimental period.
 
The statement of reasons was finally given by the Council on 26 October 2020 and when they did so, they simply ‘switched’ the documents over, maintaining the original date of 26 August 2020 on the new document.  Notification of the amendment was not published so the Council deliberately tried to mislead the public into believing the statement of reasons were available for inspection from 26 August 2020.

The absence of the statement of reasons fails the purpose of a genuine consultation.
 
When challenged by a local resident, the Council admitted to the error, but they simply classed it as ‘administrative’ and said no prejudice has been caused. This is wrong. The public’s right to make a statutory challenge against the ETO had been substantially prejudiced as the deadline for issuing such a challenge had expired by the time the statement of reasons had been given. (The deadline for bringing a statutory challenge is 6 weeks from the effective date, in this case 19 October 2020. The statement of reasons was given one week later)
 
In consultation with a barrister at FTB Chambers, on 18 May 2021, One Community submitted a formal letter of objection against the Fox Lane traffic orders being made permanent. The Council’s unlawful actions have been highlighted in the letter of objection.
 
The letter of objection is a precursor to a legal challenge if Enfield Council makes the orders permanent. This was sent on behalf of all residents and businesses that have joined the group through the One Community website, WhatsApp and Facebook.  The Council have not commented on the objection letter.The letter of objection is a precursor to a legal challenge if Enfield Council makes the orders permanent.
 
The legal letter of objection and summary can be viewed on the One Community website: https://stopfoxlaneltn.org/letter-of-objection/
The key points are:

1. Public's right to properly object to the traffic orders substantially prejudiced by the Council

The Council failed to include a statement of reasons in the traffic order published on 26 August 2020. It is a legal requirement to keep the statement of reasons available for inspection throughout the whole experimental period. The statement of reasons was finally given by the Council on 26 October 2020 and when they did so, they simply 'switched' the documents over, maintaining the original date of 26 August 2020 on the new document. Notification of the amendment was not published so that the Council was misleading the public to believe that the statement of reasons was available for inspection from 26 August 2020. The absence of the statement of reasons fails the purpose of a genuine consultation.


There is no provision in law for the Council to extend the objection deadline until 11 July 2021. In its letter of 12 May 2021, the Council has misled the public about the deadline for objecting to the traffic orders.Important documents relating to the traffic orders were only made available to the public on 12 May 2021, 8 months after the orders were made and one week before the statutory objection deadline. Some of that data will not be available until well past the statutory objection deadline. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic have not been factored in to the Council's impact assessment.

The Council failed to engage with residents on nearby surrounding roads, choosing to only engage with those within the LTN area and boundary roads.


2. Public's right to make a statutory challenge to the traffic orders substantially prejudiced by the Council


The deadline for making a statutory challenge to the traffic orders had expired by the time the statement of reasons had been given on 26 October 2020. The deadline is 6 weeks from the date of the order, meaning the deadline was on 19 October 2020, one week before the statement of reasons were published.


3. Misuse of power to make the traffic orders permanent


Much of the Fox Lane traffic order experimental period will have been during exceptional periods of lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Any data produced by the Council will be positively misleading and will lead to irrational decision making which is not evidence based.


4. Compliance with S122 of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984

This requires the Council to secure the expeditious, convenient and safe movement of vehicular and other traffic. The traffic orders have caused an increase in large vehicles being forced to reverse the full length of closed roads into busy A roads and roundabouts. This is unsafe. The significant and regular congestion on the boundary roads does not secure the expeditious and convenient movement of vehicular traffic.


5. Air Quality

Air quality has not been directly recorded pre-trial period or during the trial period. Air quality will be modelled from traffic data which fails to take into account idling vehicles. Diffusion tubes installed by the Council during April 2021 provide limited coverage. There has been no long-term robust measuring of air quality.


6. Equalities Impact


The Council has failed to properly take into account the impact of the traffic orders on protected groups, it has undermined the proper right of those with protected characteristics to object with the 'Disabled People and Carers' survey only undertaken between 4 and 31 March 2021.

One Community is a non-political, non-partisan group of residents and businesses. It is made up of people who move around in many ways including pedestrians, cyclists, the disabled, motorists, bus and train users and local businesses, all of whose daily movements in the area have been severely hampered by the Fox lane LTN.



Enfield Council is not the only local authority facing accusations of 'administrative errors' in relation to the way in which LTNs have been implemented. 

Lambeth Council is being urged to pay back hundreds of thousands of pounds it has made from the motoring fines on roads it wasn't legally authorised to do so.
 
 
Should Enfield Council be challenged to do so?

Enough is enough - so why is Enfield Council 'kicking' the Fox Lane LTN feedback down the road?

Enough is enough - so why is Enfield Council 'kicking' the Fox Lane LTN feedback down the road?

 

With only a week to go before the end of the statutory consultation on the highly controversial Fox Lane LTN, residents have begun to receive letters to say that the consultation on the 'Fox Lane Quieter Neighbouhood scheme' is be be extended until 11th July.

 

Note the name change with no mention of the fact that this is an LTN implemented under the government's emergency pandemic legislation - which is being successfully challenged across London. 

 

Here is a link to the letter than some residents have received.

Fox Lane Area Quieter Neighbourhood Project Update May 2021

 

It is clear that Enfield Council are trying to distance themselves from the Local Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) 'brand', preferring to use the more benign 'Quieter Neighbouhood' descriptor - even though the proposed QN scheme was resoundingly rejected in 2019, prior to the pandemic.

 

Residents are told in the letter that Enfield Council is "extending the opportunity for comment beyond the minimum statutory consultation". 

 

After six months of misery and thousands of complaints surely there is sufficient evidence that this scheme 

a) isn't working in reducing traffic

 

b) is causing significant problems to thousands of people who live and need to travel around the area for perfectly legitimate reasons, with more than £2m levied in penalty tickets by people who have breached the boundary restirctions, without being aware that they will incur a fine. 

 

c) will be rejected by a large majority of people when the statututory consultation results to 19 May 2021 are analysed?

 

The terminology used in the letter such as "consultation survey" is not the same as the "statutory consultation" which forms part of the emergency traffic order - which commenced on 7 September 2020 7and amended further on 19 November, as the Council had not conducted the required Equalities engagement. It is these orders which require formal objection via the statutory consultation during the stated six month period as within those orders.

 

It is important that you lodge any concerns about the Fox Lane LTN before the statutory consultation deadline of 19th May 2021.

 

These let's talk "CONsulation" surveys are not the statutory consultation as regarded in law - they are non-statutory and there is no legal certainty around them. FORMAL OBJECTIONS can be submitted to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. regarding TG52/1451 - the Fox Lane LTN scheme.

 

However as WH councillor Ian Barnes has directed people to complete the Lets Talk Fox Lane LTN survey when people have contacted him with their complaints, the survey results must be given equal weight.


14.5z2

 

Why is the deadline being extended to July?


a) is it to discourage a last minute surge of submissions before the 19/5/21 statutory consultation date?

 

b) to kick the 'problem' down the road?

 

c) to await the outcome of the High Court judgements of LTNs in Hounslow and Lambeth and TfL's appeal on 15 June to a High Court, against the  judgment on 21 January that the Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL) “acted unlawfully” in their treatment of licensed taxis, in the Streetspace for London Plan and associated Guidance and the A10 Bishopsgate Traffic Order.

The urgent question that needs to be asked is whether Enfield Council is meeting its statutory obligations under the Road Traffic Regulation Act to fully consult with residents?


The Experimental/emergency scheme cannot be made permanent until this has been undertaken.


Remember Cllr Barnes has said that he would listen to residents,


THE TIME HAS COME FOR ENFIELD COUNCIL TO RESPECT THE WISHES OF THE PEOPLE OF ENFIELD

 

Cllr Maria Alexandrou shares her Fox Lane LTN submission

Cllr Maria Alexandrou shares her Fox Lane LTN submission

 

This article by Winchmore Hill Councillor Maria Alexandrou, whose ward covers part of the Fox Lane LTN. It is is based on her official submission to the consultation, cataloguing the many concerns she has about the scheme; reflected in the hundreds of emails and other correspondence she has had with residents and businesses in the local area. 

 


SUMMARY


I urge Enfield Council to listen to the residents of Enfield who are telling you about the problems that the implementation of these schemes have caused,

which are not going to go away. The key objectives of the Fox Lane LTN have failed. There is no evidence that the residents within the scheme or in the wider area are making less use of their vehicles and overall more miles and therefore more pollution are being generated by this so-called 'climate change' initiative.

 

There was no mandate to progress with these road closures


* Why have an LTN in Fox Lane when the Mayor's Street Space for London's Strategic Neighbourhood Analysis puts this area in the lowest category for suitability namely traffic filtering, schools,deprivation and car ownership?

 

* The Fox Lane area consists of large houses with huge rear gardens and access to nearby beautiful parks and green spaces and walking distance to public transport.

 

* There has been a lack of proper community engagement and consultation. Whatsmore, the council's own survey indicates over 75% were against the original Quieter Neighbourhood scheme and that even within the LTN less than 20% supported the scheme.

 

* The current LTN scheme, introduced under the emergency COVID-19 Street Space legislation, is only a minor amendment of the earlier rejected proposals and imposed without overwhelming rejection from local residents, with no further community (virtual) meetings held. Even the ward councillors were ignored.

 

* The council deliberately misrepresented its results to proceed with an unpopular scheme.

 

The values and opinions of residents have been disregarded


* Online consultation is discriminatory to the elderly, the disabled and vulnerable who may not own a laptop or mobile phone or understand the process to object or voice their opinion. It took the council many months before contacting over 10,500 blue badge holders after lots of vocal protests; hence the need to extend the consultation. 

 

* No paper copies were easily available for consultations.

 

* No transparent colour coded heat maps of responses to show yes or no support for LTNs.

 

* No equality assessments have been forthcoming, with no provision to support blue badge holders and they have been impacted the most.

 

* The council has ignored how difficult life has become for many people that rely on car transport to go to hospital, to receive care or for other essential journeys.

 

* Longer journeys negatively affect most local residents but particularlythose with health, physical and mental health problems, incontinent problems, respiratory illnesses, degenerative conditions, pregnant etc.

 

* People living on surrounding roads to the LTNs were never consulted yet they are impacted the most. Information was only provided by the council to people who live within the LTN. The negative impact of LTN- elderly, disabled, vulnerable, and residents living outside LTNs has never been accessed.

 

* Petitions about the ignored. For example, more than 6000 people have signed a petition against the LTN; whilst less than 300 have sigend one in favour of the Fox Lane LTN

 

Increasing pollution


* LTN increases total pollution in the borough. This has been shown in Bowes ward following the implementation of the first LTN. Pollution has increased along the Bowes road where the primary school is situated. The evidence is from real time monitoring at Bowes primary school.

 

* There is significanly increased traffic on roads like Green Lanes, Aldermans Hill and Bourne Hill have created traffic gridlock, journey delays for buses and traffic noise; over a pmndemic period when many people are making fewer journeys than normal.. The thousands of photos showing congestion on the roads around the Fox Lane LTN clearly demonstrate the scale of the problem that the closures have caused.  Pollution has been pushed onto boundary roads around LTNs from the displaced traffic forced onto nearby and main roads.

 

A study by Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council states "an idling engine can produce up to twice as many exhaust emissions as an engine in motion. Exhaust emissions contain a range of air pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter. These can effect the air quality of the surrounding environment and the air we breathe"


* This increased air pollution is experienced by residents who live on these surrounding residential roads; pedestrians but most worryingly it being inhaled by children walking along these main roads to get to school - who are being encouraged to walk to school. 

 

* Yet, there is a lack of any meaningful air pollution monitoring. The council did not take baseline measures of air quality before installing road barriers and did not instal emission monitoring devices for air quality. Another London council, Wandsworth, measured nitrogen dioxide on the roads next to the LTNs and found that pollution increased. Once the road closures were removed, the nitrogen dioxide and toxic car pollutant levels on the surrounding roads fell dramatically.

 

* The diesel powered council enforcement vehicles engine idling for many hours a day to monitor cars entering the LTNs ,including outside a nursery school negates their climate change agenda

 

No Traffic evaporation

 

* There has been no traffic evaporation, nor is there likely to be, because most of these trips are deemed to be essential by the residents and businesses who make them, despite the Council repeatedly using the derogatory term 'rat runners' for people going about the daily lives. The council's attempt to hold Waltham Forest as a model of the success of an LTN is highly questionable, as the evidence from government statistical data proves LTNs have pushed traffic onto surrounding roads and traffic volumes increased 15% since LTNs were introduced. Traffic increased more in Waltham Forest than any other London Borough.Traffic has been pushed onto roads that were already noisy, congested and polluted.

 

PCN fines exceed £2m

 

* Since the cameras on the perimeter of the LTN were installed, the council has accrued over £2m in PCN fines. The Meadway is the worst with £1m fines received which proves the signage is inadequate and confusing. given the enormous number of infringmements, surely the Council should have done more to improve the signage, which are still poorly positioned and it's unclear whether residents can pass through? In Fox Lane I've seen many drivers do dangerous 3 point turns in the middle of the road once they realise they cannot drive through.

 

Lack of impact assessments business and emergency services

 

* The council has failed to carry out important impact assessments on how LTNs will economically affect businesses. Businesses are complaining of loss of trade as customers are stuck in traffic and give up trying to get to the business. Not only has this resulted in lost revenue, but also it is has meant that many of their customers are going elshwere, to places which are more convenient for them to reach. 

 

* Businesses that rely on road transport such as builders, plumbers, electricians etc face delays and loss of business for essential work.

 

*Deliveries, including urgent ones, such as vital medicines get stuck in traffic.

 

* Emergency services clearly stated their objections to LTNs as I have seen the emails so these cannot be ignored. Every minute lost to an ambulance journey being hindered can be dangerous and could potentially result in a death. Again there is significant photographic evidence of delays caused to emergency services stuck in traffic and unable to pass through congested roads.

 

Impact on crime & fear of crime


* On streetcheck.co.Uk-N13 4RB Fox Lane 0.5 mile radius shows violent and sexual crime increased within the Fox Lane LTN roads between October to December after their implementation

No impact on crime has been assessed.

 

* A report by Ealing Council said police warned LTNs help criminals evade capture as barriers provide escape routes whilst blocking access to police and create dark silent crime hotspots. LTNs provide 'security' for criminals not law abiding residents.

 

* Parents report that they are driving to pick up their children now as they don't feel it's safe whereas they let them walk home before. This means more unnecessary car journeys

 

LTNs causing problems for women in particular

 

* Women have reported feeling unsafe as there is now less passing traffic on LTN roads making a walk home in a dark quiet deserted road scary as the natural surveillance of cars going up and down the roads has vanished. They say that they feel a heightened sense of fear which is unacceptable.

 

* It is still the case that women carry more of the burden of household and parental responsibilities, which mean that they rely on cars to juggle a  multitude of responsibilities in their every day lives- for example work, take kids to school, care for their parents and neighbours, disabilities, taking people to hospital appointments; including household shopping - which the Council have failed to acknowledge.

Many have told me tht this is having a severe impact on their mental health and some are considering stopping work which will impact on their financial status.

 

 

Social injustice and community divisions


* The Land Registry statistics between 2016-2020 reveal that property prices within LTNs are higher than on boundary roads. According to an analysis by The Times (13.2.21), average property prices within the new zones are up to 70% higher than on surrounding roads which is disproportionately benefiting residents within the LTNs. LTNs have disrupted the lives of those on poorer roads with traffic fumes and pollution pushed into poorer areas, living in smaller terraced houses and with little chance of moving out of the area. Traffic congestion and fumes are pushed onto less affluent areas such as Bowes where houses are much cheaper than houses in the Fox Lane area and this increases inequality.

 

*With 33% of Londoners living near a busy road accordingly the Kings College 2019 report, more traffic is pushed onto these main roads causing residents including children to suffer these choking traffic fumes

 

Failure to address other highways issues

 

* Whilst the Council has been so preoccupied with LTNs, other pressing issues such as the poor provision of electric charge points; improving the pavements to make it safer for people to walk around have not been addressed. 

 

What next?

 

* A number of other London councils, including Croydon, Sutton, Wandsworth and most recently Harrow and Croydon have withdrawn LTNs, because the overwhelming evidence that they were causing problems for their residents. There are a growing numbe rof legal challenges;  Sutton Council, for example have said that they have no choice given the legal judgement by Mrs Justice Beverley Lang that TFL acted UNLAWFULLY in using emergency measures to introduce measures to introduce changes to road layouts. It was stated that TL'fs process was seriously flawed and did not sufficiently research or mitigate the potential adverse impacts of Street Space projects on people with disabilities and that LTNs as unlawful, irrational and not evidence based

 

* In June 2021, judicial reviews will challenge LTNs in Lambeth, Hounslow and Hackney.

Main road residents forgotten amid low traffic scheme roll-out

Main road residents forgotten amid low traffic scheme roll-out

 

This aricle by Winchmore Hil Community First councillor Dinah Barry was first published in Enfield Dispatch, March 2021. It is reproduced with Cllr Barry's permission.

 

"It's a bit more complicated than blocking off a few roads"


I am an unrepentant nerd; some of my all-time heroes are Tim Harford, Simon Singh and Ben Goldacre because they delight in using evidence and facts to debunk nonsense and understand the world better.

 

One of Ben Goldacre's favourite comments was "I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that" which, had he ever written about them, I am sure he would have applied to many of the arguments being aired over Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNS).

 

If you were unaware of LTNs, they are areas where roads are closed to through-traffic forcing drivers, to use 'main' roads around the periphery.

 

The arguments for building these are laudable: cars cause pollution which harms health and causes climate change, many car journeys are so short that they are not necessary and walking and cycling are healthier means of transport because they combat obesity and heart disease. Therefore if you can deter people from making short journeys by car, you will improve health and reduce damage to the climate.

 

Two LTNs were installed in Enfield last autumn and are nearing the end of six month trials. More are planned, indeed Cllr. Ian Barnes who is in charge of the project, is keen that all of Enfield has them.

 

There are many arguments made against the LTNs. I am going to concentrate on the evidence and facts, or the lack of them. I am not going to discuss 'traffic evaporation' a phenomenon about which there is an astonishing lack of supporting evidence.

If you are interested visit https://communityfirstgroup.org.uk/raffic-evap-evidence.

 

By contrast these facts seem to be unarguable:


Not all short car journeys are unnecessary especially for people who have mobility difficulties.

 

• The council may designate some roads as main or peripheral roads but whatever they are called, people live in homes on all the roads in Enfield.


• Car journeys and therefore pollution may have reduced since the autumn but we aren't living in normal times so we cannot tell what has caused this. What is certain is that some journeys are made longer causing more pollution, and that that pollution is on the peripheral roads.


• Cllr. Barnes rightly says that to collect data at the moment would be meaningless because we are not living in normal times. But that begs the question: Why start trails at a time when no meaningful measurements could be collected?


I think that the money spent on LTNs would have been better used widening narrow footways so that we could all exercise more safely LTNs are a simple response to a complex problem; they are unfair and divide communities. Encouraging people to walk and cycle more and to use cars less is a bit more complicated than this.

Letter to David Taylor: the Council does not know best how we should lead our lives

Letter to David Taylor: the Council does not know best how we should lead our lives

 

This letter has been written by Maria who lives within the Fox Lane LTN (Lower Traffic Neighbourhood - the eleven roads on the Lakes Estate (average value circa £1m), which have been turned into no through roads. 

 

Maria has given permission to publish as it illustrates most of the concerns of residents, even if they are privileged enough to now live in what is a private estate.

 

 

 

Dear Mr Taylor,


As you are Head of Traffic and Transportation at Enfield Council I wish to state my strong objection to the Fox Lane LTN and I ask that it be removed as soon as possible.

 

Let me begin by saying that I live on one of the closed roads so in the Council's opinion I should be delighted. I'm not and neither are hundreds of the other residents of these roads. Our neighbourly peace plus our quality of life has been badly affected by the negative feelings and disruption to our movements in a once amiable community, and it is all due to the Council deciding that they know best how we should conduct our lives.

 

This scheme was implemented in September 2020 without full consultation with the residents of all the affected roads. There was a meeting in Autumn 2019 in Starbucks Palmers Green where a large number of residents put forward their strong objections to an initial plan. The Council said it would consider all that had been said and consult again with the residents. This second consultation never took place and instead, the current scheme was imposed upon us and rushed through "because of COVID". I fail to understand the reasoning behind this rush or any logical link to COVID.

 

It seems that for some time a group describing themselves as Better Streets for Enfield have been in close communication with Cllr. Ian Barnes. This group claimed to be speaking on behalf of residents in wanting roads closed. They did not speak for me or my neighbours. We knew nothing about this wish to close our roads until it was more or less a done deal in Autumn 2019 and we were all horrified to say the least. Hence the Starbucks meeting.

 

The scheme is a disaster. It has turned 11 roads in the area into cul-de-sacs and shifted all the traffic from those 11 roads onto 5 "boundary" roads. These 5 roads were never particularly quiet roads pre-scheme but now — when not in lockdown — there is extremely heavy traffic on them resulting in very long stop-start queues, pollution, noise and vibration from the queueing idling engines, added mileage to journeys which were previously shorter and considerably more time spent in traffic for drivers. The residents of these 5 roads feel that they are considered unimportant compared to those who live on the closed roads. Does the Council not feel that they also deserve clean air, to have a quiet home to relax in, not to be bombarded with traffic queueing outside their windows and front doors, to be able to cross their street safely and peacefully? It looks like the Council sees some residents as being more valuable than others. Why should I live on a traffic-free private road while my friends take "my" traffic?

 

Who decided that it didn't matter if fairly busy roads became intolerably busy?

 

Who at the Council has the right to make such a decision?

 

Meanwhile the 11 closed-off roads are just that — closed off to everyone apart from the residents themselves. A private estate has been created. It is interesting to note that virtually all the homes on these closed-off roads have at least one car parked in their driveway with many having two or even three. We clearly like to drive. The residents who are pro the LTN are very happy to drive on other peoples' roads to get where they want to go. That is considered perfectly reasonable and acceptable by them. But they don't want others to drive on their roads. Of course not all residents of these closed-off roads are happy with the situation, the majority aren't, myself included. The scheme is grossly unfair. The displaced traffic from the 11 closed-off roads has made life intolerable for those people who live on the now extremely busy 5 boundary roads.

 

Unbelievably the residents of some of these roads were never consulted about the scheme and in fact knew nothing about the implementation until the planters and bollards were in place. I've spoken to a number of them who feel their quality of life has been destroyed and they are suffering mental health problems as a result.

 

It seems that the aim of the scheme is to protect the environment. I'm sure I speak for every resident when I say that protecting the environment is of major concern to us all. This LTN is not protecting the environment. In fact it is doing the opposite. Long barely moving queues of vehicles along Green Lanes, Alderman's Hill, The Bourne, High Street and Cannon Hill are doing nothing to save the environment with all the emissions and pollution spewing out of exhaust pipes. There are similar queues trying to get out of the many residential side roads to join these boundary roads. As a pedestrian the air is toxic and one can taste the fumes. I certainly wouldn't want children inhaling that never mind myself.

 

The closed-off roads mean more miles travelled on many journeys in order to get where one wants to go. An example of that is part of a journey we make regularly which for us used to be 0.2 miles is now 1.2 miles which as you can see is an additional 2 miles every time that return journey is made. That same part of a journey used to take less than 1 minute but since the LTN we have to allow 16 minutes, How is any of this helping the environment?  Additionally, it is ironic, that the very council that is closing our roads to protect the environment, has its own vehicles parked for hours at a time with engines running to monitor the ANPR cameras.

 

The second aim of the scheme is to get people to stop using their cars and instead use bikes or walk. I will speak for myself only here. I use our car and will continue to use it as and when I wish. I have always walked when I could but since the implementation of the LTN there have been times I used the car where previously I would have walked as I am not prepared to inhale the fumes of queueing vehicles. It feels unhealthy and for me health comes first. I have no wish to ride a bicycle in London and your scheme will not force me to use one. I think cycling is great and it's something I enjoy on holiday in a healthy environment but not in a dangerous one. In a nutshell I won't be told how to move around.

 

I believe there were those at Enfield Council who proposed that once the scheme was settled in place the traffic would evaporate. These people should not hold positions in your transport planning department. It has been well over four months since the scheme came into force. The traffic has not evaporated and won't evaporate. My use of the car hasn't changed but instead of driving along one set of roads I'm unfortunately part of "the traffic" on another set of roads.

 

This scheme does not serve the community. We have a mixture of needs. There are frail people, elderly people, disabled people, pre-school children and those challenged in different ways who need care from health visitors, other professionals and relatives. The closures are a scourge for them.

 

There are many of us who do not have special needs as just mentioned but we are time-pressed, have jobs to get to, loads to carry, deliveries to make, businesses to run, children to ferry around with their musical instruments and sports gear or — shock horror — we simply want to drive. Added to that we are currently living in a pandemic and do not want to expose ourselves to the risk of using public transport which we are discouraged from using anyway at the moment, so naturally we'll use our cars. It makes sense. What about the emergency services? We have seen for ourselves ambulances and police cars driving along our roads on a blue light on their way to an emergency only to find an entrance or exit blocked off with planters and bollards. The police have told us that crime is likely to increase as they will be less inclined to patrol these 11 cul-de-sacs. Local residents have already seen examples of this with thieves breaking into cars and vans for instance. The fines given out to motorists who have driven through the cameras is immoral. Walking late at night makes some residents very anxious and tense because these cul-de-sacs are so deserted.

 

Residents of these roads have always been able to cycle or scoot on the roads if they wished. We never had a problem chatting to neighbours whilst standing safely on the footpath. Why would we want to socialise while standing on the road? We have respected the carriageway as a place for us to drive our cars as we make our way somewhere. Roads were built and are maintained with cars in mind.

 

Children who live on these roads have rear gardens to play in safely and we have at least three parks in the area. I've lived on my road for many years and raised four children and never once did our children want to play on the street. In addition they were reared to respect the road and the potential for a car or cyclist to come along. Over the past almost five months I haven't seen any children out on my road unsupervised nor have I seen them on any other road — and that is during lockdown. I personally know several families with fairly young children and none of them would want their children playing on the road and it's not cars they fear.

 

I have spoken to Royal Mail drivers, Amazon drivers and supermarket delivery drivers. They fail to understand the wisdom of the closures as they drive round in circles adding many extra miles to what were once quick deliveries. I've felt very embarrassed when they've said that they notice that it is roads where rich people live that are closed and not the ones where poorer people live.

In the more recent past a large part of the reason why drivers from far outside our area used the residential roads is the cycle lane on Green Lanes. It has to be the greatest waste of money. I see the very occasional cyclist on it. There simply isn't the demand. I

 

t has reduced the road width to the extent that drivers cannot overtake buses and they also get stuck behind right-turners. Naturally drivers want to avoid that scenario just as I do myself. We have seen the Council's statistics of cyclists using this cycle lane but quite honestly we are all puzzled as to where the figures come from.

 

Once again I am making the point that we the residents were not consulted about this LTN. The vast majority of us were perfectly happy with the roads as they were and sharing the traffic. All of us — including the minority's pro-LTN group and no doubt yourself too — drive on other people's roads. That is life whether in the city or the countryside. Please listen to the many hundreds of residents who want this LTN removed. If things are as bad as they are at the moment I dread to think what we will have to deal with when the schools re-open and when life gets back to some sort of normality.

 

I could write a lot more explaining how this LTN is not the answer to anything and quite honestly if there is anyone at the Council who thinks this is going to help the environment I seriously question their judgement and whether they are suitable for the position they hold.

 

We would respect the council for taking action and getting rid of this ill-thought-out LTN scheme. Just remember we live here, this is where our homes and places of business are so please let us, the residents, decide what traffic restrictions should be in place. Our lives are blighted with these closed- off roads. We didn't ask for them. We don't want them. Please remove the Fox Lane LTN now.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

MARIA (Full name provided)

An Open Letter to Cllr Ian Barnes: the LTN Consultation Process

3.11m1             

             Councillor Ian Barnes

             Deputy Leader of the Council

             Chair of the Brexit Panel

             Chair of the Climate Change Task Force

             Culture Strategy Lead

             Vice-Chair of the Enfield Community Resilience Board

             Citizens Advice Trustee Board

             Winchmore Hill ward - Labour

             Phone: 07971 672 805

 

              Dear Cllr Barnes,

 

              I would like to ask a couple of questions about the consultation process for the Fox Lane and Bowes Park LTNs.

 

             

I am not approaching this from a specific point of view, but mainly to get an understanding of how the council will deal with the opinions of residents for and against the schemes.

 

1. After the six month trial period is over, how will the council process the information gained from the online comments?

What is the procedure and how long does it take?

 

2 Are the council required to say how many people were in favour of the scheme and how many opposed them or were neutral. I wasn't sure whether the questions allowed for specific answers to these points despite filling in the consultation forms myself.

 

3. What criteria will the council use for deciding whether to make the schemes permanent or to remove them?

 

4. What are the cost implications if the schemes are withdrawn?

 

5. Bowes Park was implemented with only 268 people responding to the original consultation of which 71% were in favour. The outcry over the implemented scheme suggests that the responses the Council received were not representative of opinion in the part of the wards affected, and possibly was skewed by a high level of activism in Warwick Road, that was not replicated elsewhere. How would you respond to this point?  In numerical terms that is very small given that over 5,000 people live in the area.

 

6. Has the council supplied paper copies of the consultation to the two LTN areas? This is because there are a high number of elderly or disadvantaged people without internet access or the ability to fill in online consultations. We know this from my area in Winchmore Hill where we have similar percentages of members of the residents association who can only be reached by putting newsletters through their doors.

 

7. How will local residents be informed and updated of the progress of the consultations and what is the final date when an announcement will be made?

REOPEN OUR ROADS Another fine mess from TfL and Enfield Council

REOPEN OUR ROADS Another fine mess from TfL and Enfield Council

15.10a3 

          THE FOX LANE LOWER TRAFFIC NEIGHBOURHOOD TRIAL

          CONSULTATION IS NOW OPEN

            

           https://letstalk.enfield.gov.uk/foxlaneQN

 

 

 

 

 

It is now four years since Enfield Council first announced plans to build its first 'mini Holland' cycle route, along the A105, from Enfield Town to Palmers Green. Funded by TfL, this route was intended to encourage local cycling and provide one of the spokes of the wheel of cycle routes into central London. Promises were also made that the scheme would be transformational and enhance our local high streets.

 

Four years on – has it fulfilled its objectives?

There are more cyclists using the cycle lane, espcially during lockdown but in percentage terms the shift in travel mode has been well below the targets, especially on the more northerly stretches in Winchmore Hill, up towards Enfield.

 

Has it benefitted the local economy? Most definitely not, even though more people are shopping locally. The damage to local businesses was confirmed by research commissioned by Enfield Council, the disruption to traffic flows, ongoing problems with congestion and the reduction in on street parking has had a massive negative impact on the A105 economy, resulting in numerous business failures. However despite frequent requests for promised support from Enfield Council nothing has materialised.

 

Winchmore Hill Retail Check: A Cause for Concern

WInchmore Hill: Why action is urgently needed

 .................................................................................................................


Now fast forward to 2020 and Enfield Council's new 'win' from TfL – funding for so called low traffic neighbourhood (LTN)


Local Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs)

 

Funded by the Department for Transport Emergency Active Travel Fund, following on from lockdown LTNs have been implemented across London utilising 'emergency' traffic managment orders which do not require prior consultation, before a trial implementation for a period of six months. Like the Mini Hollands and cycle superhighways, the schemes are designed to discourage travel by private transport, to prioritise pedestrians and cyclists. Creating enclaves of residential roads (lower traffic/quieter neighbourhoods) with limited access, vehicles are forcing instead to use main roads - even though the majority of these are also residential.

 

The result: traffic chaos, congestion and pollution; with delays not only to private citizens and businesses but also emergency services and buses; including school buses. Following the closures adjoining roads are having to cope with up to 50% more traffic; many people are reporting that their journey times are taking significantly longer – how can this be good for the environment?

 

People who are travelling across their local areas for perfectly legitimate reasons from A to B are being demonised, described as 'rat runners' – vermin to be kept out of the neighbourhood. Whilst some residents are apparently enjoying the absence of traffic, others are struggling to get out of their roads and are having to drive three sides of a square to get to their destination.

 

Not surprisingly there has been a huge backlash from people across London, with local petitions, public demonstrations, media articles both pro and against (mostly) and thousands of social media comments, summed up by this comment "the needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many". 

 

Across London people are coming together to campaign for the reversal of these discriminatory, sometimes dangerous road schemes which are having a negative impact on people's ability to move around their home area. As a result, a number of councils including Wandsworth and Lewisham are curtailing their Lower Traffic Neighbourhood schemes, recognising the problems (which could have been anticipated) have been caused.


LTNs in Enfield

 

The first two in the borough were implemented in Bowes Park, where residents can only get into their residential 'enclave' via the North Circular (A406). 

 

The second is the Fox Lane scheme, which bars vehicles from entering the 'Lakes estate'. It has created an enclave bordered by Southgate High Street/Cannon Hill, Aldermans Hill, Bourne Hill and Green Lanes.

  15.10a9

 

Roads have been closed off so that there is only entry from one direction even for residents who live on these roads and even though they are established routes connecting Southgate, Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill they are no barred to all traffic, except for cyclists and pedestrians.

 

Winchmore Hill councillor Ian Barnes (Deputy Leader of Enfield Council) who is heading up Enfield's LTNs argues that the schemes are a necessary response to the climate change crisis and will improve air quality.

 

This is a short video produced by Cllr Barnes, with a response from residents living in the afflicated Bowes LTN questioning the validity of his arguments. 

 13.10z1

 

 

Here are a sample of stories that local people have shared on social media. (Names withheld but can be verified)


"I one of the disliked daily car users. My day – 8.15 – 8.30 disabled child picked up for school. 8.45 school with younger child. 9am at my desk or in the community using my car as a key worker – who never has lunch and dashes around trying to carry out my role. Remember then that I have two children finishing at 3 and then continue to do full time hours working all hours. Sorry I don't have time to walk my children to school sorry I have to ern a living but I am most sorry for the lack of infrastructure and how we are blamed for making the traffic worse. Please put things in place before tking away we will all no doubt have a miserable traffic COVID winter 2020 thanks to those who contributed to it".


"If I drive from my home to my destination through Fox Lane, the most direct route it does not make me a rat. My wife and I are hard working, taxpaying people with a difficult commute. If we save ten minutes from a long journey by going through Fox Lane it does not make us bad people. We are using the public road network, funded by the public and road users, as it was designed to be used".


"Four children at different schools, my school run begins at 7.15am and yes if Covid wasn't around the two older ones would take the bus, but I also have to take into account my elderly parents especialy my mother in hospital for nine weeks with Covid"


How can gridlocked traffic be anything other than damaging? According to Cllr Barnes, given time these traffic problems will evaporate. Yet how is going to happen when most of these journeys are necessary?


Families with young children, the elderly & disabled who can't simply walk or get on a bike are especially disadvantaged. It is flawed thinking that many people have to option to travel outside peak times as they have to get themselves to work, their children to school and other important appointments.

 

It is insulting to infer that their travel isn't 'essential'.


Without wanting to appear sexist, a lot of the travel hold ups will fall on women disproprortionately, as they are more likely to be taking short journeys

with few other options;

taking their children to school, managing childcare, have responsiblity for elderly parents,

running the household and volunteering their time to help other people in the community.

          How can it be safe for a delivery lorry such             
          as this one, which was forced to reverse                 
          back onto the roundabout on Southgate
          High Street because the Mall is blocked off?
          click on the image to watch the video




 
13.10z4         
          How can it be safe or environmentally sound           
          for rubbish lorries to have to reverse out of a           
          road because one end of it has been blocked off,
          like this one on Lakeside Road?  

          How much longer is it taking for them to complete
          their rounds?

 

 

 

13.10z5     

          Emergency services are reporting longer response times;

          this ambulance turned back as it seems the driver was uncertain

          as to whether it could legitimately proceed.

 

          It is understood that emergency vehicles don't carry a key to unlock the bollards

          such as the one at the top of this article - forcing them to make long detours,

          often through heavy traffic.

 

 

 

       

This fire engine was photographed in Bowes, unable to proceed due to the locked bollard. Have the emergency services been consulted about this scheme?

FOI requests have revealed that the emergency services told the council that they preferred a number plate recognition scheme which wouldn't impede their vehicles, not bollards.

 

 16.10k1

 

Carers are reporting that they cannot reach as many patients in a day  because their journeys are now much longer and have less time to spend with these often vulnerable people, whose medication may be delayed.

 

Pharmacies are reporting that they are struggling with prescription deliveries.

 

Should a patient press their alarm button, response times are being delayed.

 

The emergency services face longer journey times on calls within the LTNs or the surrounding area. It is compounding the problems which are already being caused by the cycle lane wands on Green Lanes which prevent drivers pulling over to allow ambulances, fire engines and police vehicles to manoeuvre through traffic. 

 

13.10z2          Local business owners are losing customers           

          and facing extra travel costs. Extra travel               

          time by tradesmen for instance will have to             

          be passed on to the customer. 

         

          Taxis are having to take longer routes and               

          some are finding that certain routes are no             

          longer financially viable. How can this be

 

          How can this benefit our already compromised local economy?

          This article explains the problems faced by one local business Winchmore Hill Dog Walking

 

 

Removing the bollards, blocks and planters are vital to reconnect our communities

 especially during the difficult months ahead when travelling by public transport is once more being discouraged.

 

Many residents resent being corralled, limiting access to their own homes, as well as for deliveries, tradespeople and visitors.

What is the economic cost of this unprecedented gridlocked?

LOCAL PETITION: Objection to Low Traffic Neighbourhood and Immediate opening of roads to traffic

Urgent: Objection to Planning Application 20/02863/FUL

Urgent: Objection to Planning Application 20/02863/FUL

 


More than 120 objections have been submitted against this back garden development:

PLANNING REFUSED

A day after the planning application closed for community comments, the application was refused. 

Carole Coyne and Sharde Behrouzi who led the campaign on behalf of their families, neighbours and the wider community would like to thank everyone who lodged an objection.

Read the refusal letter

 

They wait to see if an appeal is lodged. 

 



Read the report prepared by Planning Consultant Sharde Behrouzi

Objection report to proposed works at the land behind 3-7 Seaforth Gardens 


For the past five years Carole and Andrew Coyne who live at 1 Seaforth Gardens and their neighbours have being fighting against proposals to develop back gardens behind the gardens of Nos. 3,5,7 & 9 Seaforth Gardens & Nos. 31,33 & 35 Broad Walk.

 

13.10w6

13.10w5

 

Why has it taken the developers so long to get this planning application through?

 

Firstly, they had to create a road access to the site. This was done by purchasing the garage from 3 Seaforth Gardens, which was subsequently sold, without the adjoining garage! This was demolished without planning permission in October 2019 to allow access to the site, as the photo shows it has created a narrow lane a mere 449 cm wide.

 

13.10w4

 

 

 

13.10w7

 

          This narrow access to the site has already created problems for the Coyne family.

          Vehicles using this site have caused potentially damaging structural problems to their basement.

 

          Over the past five years Carole and other Seaforth Garden neighbours have raised concerns with

          Enfield Council's planning department and have spent thousands of pounds on legal advice.

          Yet still Enfield council has allowed the developers who sought preplanning advice to progress.

          It is residents' understanding there is a covenant covering the gardens that back on to Grovelands Park

          but this apparently would not stop a planning application being made or even being granted.

 

          Meanwhile the developers have illegally destroyed a destroyed a number of trees, including mature oaks

          and a silver birch protected by a Tree Preservation Order which is a criminal act. In doing so, the

          contractor responsible had large fires which in turn damaged some mature trees within Grovelands Park.

          Again Enfield Council took no action.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Planning Application 20/02863/FUL is now now closed for objections (1/11/20)

Redevelopment of site and erection of 3 detached dwelling houses, incorporating soft and hard landscaping and installation of boundary fencing, together with car and cycle parking and refuse storage. | Land To Rear Of 3-7 Seaforth Gardens And 35 Broad Walk London N21 3BT

 

The Winchmore Hill Residents Association ( WHRA ) Architectural & Planning consultant Sharde Behrouzi has advised residents with regard to this planning application. As a Winchmore Hill resident Sharde knows the area well. He contends that the proposals contravene Policy DMD 7 Development of Garden Land. What's more if this planning application was granted it would be set a precedent which would allow this sort of development to be approved across Winchmore Hill and the resulting overdevelopment of the area through this sort of backdoor/back garden development.

Sharde explains:

 

Once again our beautiful, historic Winchmore Hill is under serious threat from developers who wish to construct new houses on green field sites.

On this occasion a planning application for a back garden development bordering the ancient woodland area of Grovelands Park has been submitted to Enfield Council.

The developers have already cleared the site and if the development is approved these new houses could set a disastrous precedent for back garden developments around Grovelands Park, leading to a second road circling Grovelands Park behind the existing homes. It would destroy the essence of Winchmore Hill.

1 . The Principle of a Back Garden Development at this location, the proposal also harms Grovelands Park which is a Grade II Listed Heritage

2 . Destruction of Green Field, Wild Life Habitat, Biodiversity & Ecological Impact

3 . Impact to Trees, protection of trees with Preservation Orders , prosecution of offenders

4 . Unsustainable Overdevelopment & Overbearing Densification of the area

5 . An Incongruous, Obtrusive & Inappropriate form of development to the locality

 

 

If you would like to contact Sharde with any questions regarding the architectural & planning points please call him on 07841 421 011

In the past the Borough of Enfield had a policy of turning down most back land development projects and this proposal would require this policy to be disregarded. Across the country planning processes are to be relaxed which will almost certainly reduce the rights of local residents to have a say in what is built in their home area.

 

The developer, who apparently doesn't even live in this country has already demonstrated a cavalier disregard for residents and the local environment and there is strong evidence that they are not fit and proper custodians of this green space which was acquired to speculate and overdevelop the area, with very poor road access to the proposed properties.

 

Enfield Council has stated that the application will be considered against both the Local Plan and the London Plan which includes policies which this application conflicts with.

In addition, the National Planning Policy Framework, Para 122(d), recognises the importance of maintaining an area's "prevailing character and setting (including residential gardens)".

We await a decision

 

Thank you for reading.

Cllr Maria Alexandrou: the chaos caused by local LTN scheme

Cllr Maria Alexandrou: the chaos caused by local LTN scheme

The LowerTraffic Neighbourhood (LTN) scheme introduced in the ward that I represent have proved to be controversial.

 

map of trial

 

https://new.enfield.gov.uk/services/roads-and-transport/traffic-management-orders/fox-lane-area-experimental-measures-pto-roads.pdf

 

The scheme closes off Fox Lane from Green Lanes and Southgate and the roads to the south (the Lakes Estate); with access only from the residential roads off Bourne Hill.

 

LTN are having the most detrimental impact on many local residents and businesses, but especially on working families, the elderly and those with mobility issues, for whom a car is essential. Residents living within the boundary of the scheme have effectively only have one way out of their roads, regardless of the direction they wish to travel; whilst all residents are now forced onto the roads on the outer boundaries which have become heavily congested. 

 

This has resulted in Aldermans Hill, Bourne Hill, Cannon Hill and Green Lanes in Palmers Green being overwhelmed with traffic jams, polluting the air.

 

6.10d1

 

The Council declared a Climate Emergency and recently launched its Climate Change Action Plan. Yet no green modes of transport have been forthcoming such as a bike hire scheme, e-scooter trial, e-bikes. Unreliable transport links have only exacerbated the problems, especially with many people avoiding using buses and trains during the pandemic.

 

We are told that closing roads will lead to traffic evaporation. However, much of the traffic is essential to people's daily lives and the argument that LTN reduce traffic by making it inconvenient is flawed, it just pushes traffic onto surrounding roads.

 

I urge Enfield council to concentrate on improving the infrastructure like adding pedestrian crossings and planting more street trees and we need clarity on the cameras and signage to avoid confusion.

 

These schemes have been introduced across London, causing similar problems, including alarming delays to emergency vehicles.  Wandsworth council recently scrapped their LTN scheme due to complaints about pollution.

 

As Fox lane LTN scheme is a live trial, the Council should listen to the voices of the residents for once. Already a local petition has gained nearly 4000 signatures and the council's consutation is due to start in mid October. I would urge anyone who is unhappy with the LTN scheme to tell the council what impact it is having on you.

 

In the meantime please continue to email your local councillors, it is important that we understand any concerns you may have about this LTN.

Cooking Champions: feeding the 10,000

26.5x2

 

Winchmore Hill Sports Club have opened up their kitchen to a community interest company called Cooking Champions. Set up by Clare Donovan, working with a team of 5 - 6 volunteers each day, Cooking Champions have been working throughout the lockdown period. They have been producing meals for people in need of a hot meal in the local area and NHS staff. They are currently producing a staggering 1700 meals a week and hit 10,000 meals this week (26.5.20)!

 

This short video on the Cooking Champions Facebook page will gladden your heart.

 

26.5x4 

 

https://www.facebook.com/cookingchampions/

 

Cooking Champions are working closely with the Felix Project, but are also crowd funding to buy ingredients. Sadly the need for support isn't falling and Cooking Champions want to be able to support the community for as long as possible. The next big push will be applying for grants and fundraising.

 

So come on N21 please dig into your wallets!
