Do you want a protected cycle route across the reservoirs linking the north of the borough to Enfield? Do you visit Enfield Town Centre and want a more welcoming and safer high street? Do you want people living in and around Enfield to have the opportunity to walk and cycle in safety?
Please support our neighbouring mini-Holland in Enfield – take a few minutes to have your say!
The two consultations on cycling schemes for Enfield Town and Southbury Road are ending on Friday and both urgently need your support:
How should you fill them in?
Here’s what Enfield Cycling Campaign are suggesting:
Southbury Road: It’s really important that in the ‘Scheme Overall’ section you select ‘Yes’ to support the scheme. Part of this route will run next to the A110 Lea Valley Road and provide a great route through the reservoirs to Chingford for people of all cycling abilities where currently there is an intimidating road with fast traffic.
Enfield Town: There are two sets of proposals. We prefer Option 1 which includes a one way bus route to make the high street as pedestrian friendly as possible. You can click ‘Yes’ to support both options in the ‘Enfield Town’ section of the consultation and mention your preference for Option 1 in the comments section.
Both consultations only take a minute or two to respond to the main (required) sections and you can then choose to add in further comments or respond to other sections of the consultation if you wish to. You can read more the proposals and what is suggested for the detailed section of the Enfield Town consultation on the LCC website.
Why is it important to support these schemes?
All the Cycle Enfield proposals will help to make cycling safer, as well as encourage more people to cycle. Both will make our borough a nicer, healthier, happier place to live. However the proposals are both facing considerable opposition and need as much support as possible to ensure they go ahead.
Please support the consultations today and urge your friends and family to do the same; it really can make a difference and will help ensure that these schemes that will benefit all of us, go ahead. Anyone of any age can respond, so children and young adults are welcome to fill in the consultations too!
