Enfield Southgate MP David Burrowes has called a series of a public meetings providing an opportunity for the public to have their say on the plans for cycle lanes along Green Lanes.
He says : "The plans have been exhibited and are now open for feedback via cycleenfield.co.uk. Whether you are a supporter or opponent of the plans there is no doubt that the £30 million scheme is the most significant transportation project for Palmers Green and the A105 corridor including Enfield Town.
Given the scale of the project and its impact it is a surprise that the Council is not more widely and directly consulting. The proposed changes in road layouts and junctions will affect constituents far beyond Green Lanes and the A105. The ambition is for all the borough to be changing their transport behaviour and making greater use of cycling. Council taxpayers will also be topping up the Mayor's award with several million pounds. When the Council plans to introduce changes to bus stops or a controlled parking zone, consultation takes place directly with affected residents and the results are carefully analysed before proceeding. However this far larger more significant project does not involve the Council directly asking each household whether they agree with the plans or not.
I am therefore planning to fill the gap in consultation by hosting public meetings along the affected route and inviting as many constituents as possible to attend. 28th September at 8pm at the Revival Christian Church, 47 London Road, Enfield EN2 6DS.
