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.

 

Cllr Maria Alexandrou:

The chaos caused by the LTN scheme

 

Winchmore Hill councillor Dinah Barry

explains that LTNs are:

 "a bit more complicated than blocking off a few roads"

Southgate Green a Friday afternoon, but it could be any afternoon – same congested traffic, kids playing oblivious of the fumes, traffic crawling from Waterfall Road, Cannon Hill, and the Green, all the way to Southgate Circus


How can this be acceptable?

 "Is the lack of consultation part of the problem?"

asks Bambos Charalambous in Parliament?"

  

"Has not that been caused by the Government's insistence that the schemes be implemented straightaway within an eight-week period, not allowing any consultation with communities or very limited consultation at best?"

Enfield Southgate - a four way carve up

on Thursday, 19 October 2017. Posted in N21 Community

 20.10m5

 

On 17 October 2017, the Boundary Commission published its revised proposals,for the new parliamentary constituencies in London; following on from the extended consultation undertaken in 2016.

 

You have until 11 December 2017 to comment on the proposals, which will see the N21 wards split across FOUR constituencies. Travelling from Bowes Park to Enfield Chase you would travel through FOUR parliamentary constituencies!

 

Whatever your political affiliations, this carve up of our parliamentary constituency does not make sense. 

 

Overall, the Boundary Commission's priority seems to be to create constituencies which are of about equal size; rather than aligning constituency boundaries with local authority boundaries, or to make any real attempt to put together wards with a shared affinity; transport links or community focal points. 

 

 19.10h5

 

Grange ward will join Enfield, which stretches up the north east of the borough, to Turkey Street.

 

Winchmore Hill and Southgate Green wards are to become part of a new Finchley Enfield Southgate seat, which will encompass Brunswick Park and Coppetts Wood.

 

Palmers Green will become part of Edmonton, whilst Bowes ward will join Hornsey & Wood Green.

 

This illusion, courtesy of Bambos Charalambous MP, shows how it is proposed to distribute the current Enfield Southgate wards.

 

 24.10g1

 

 

It means that the serving MP, currently Bambos Charalambous will have to communicate with two town halls. Given that there is often a close alignment between issues that an MP is asked to consider, with issues which are the responsibility of a local authority does this make sound economic sense? 

 

The Boundary Commission is independent of Parliament, although they can accept or reject the proposed changes. The old age that "turkeys don't vote for Christmas" comes to mind, especially as there seem to be similar comments across most of London.

    This 'carve up' makes no sense at all. Please leave our Paliamentary Constituency as it is.
