Last Monday we returned from a long summer escape in Utrecht to find our peaceful North London neighbourhood suddenly up in arms. Groups of upset neighbours had taken to the streets to protest, and this went on for a few days in a row. What caused the mayhem? The Bowes and Bounds Green area is one of a few neighbourhoods in Enfield about to get a Dutch style, area-wide low-traffic scheme intended to remove through-traffic from residential streets and redirect it back to the main roads.
More than 75 Fox Lane area residents got together to show their support for low traffic neighbourhood plans last Sunday. Aged from only a few months to over 70 years, they met at the Amberley Road play street and unveiled a “YES TO LOW TRAFFIC” banner.
Enfield Council are bidding for Liveable Neighbourhood funds from Transport for London to improve the streets of Angel Edmonton. We have until this Friday (31 January) to support them! Please respond here – take a moment to create an account if it’s your first time.

Recent local press would suggest that there is nothing but opposition to the plans for a low traffic neighbourhood in the Fox Lane area. This article, reposted with permission from Palmers Green Community website, gives another side to the story…
People living in Fox Lane and surrounding streets are welcoming Enfield Council’s idea of closing roads to create low-traffic neighbourhood (LTN) throughout the area and are calling on other residents to voice their support.
