An open letter to Transport for London and Enfield police
Once again, over the Easter bank holiday weekend, residents had to listen to the roar of engines and the squeal of tyres into the early hours of the morning as drivers raced on and around the A10.
Once again, there was an outcry on social media from people who couldn’t sleep and wanted someone to do something – anything – to stop it. On Sunday evening, a police commander tweeted in reply that he had gone to a trouble spot and given “advice” to “car enthusiasts”.
There were two events to promote cleaner air at Enfield schools last week – one at George Spicer Primary on Southbury Road and the other at Walker Primary School on Waterfall Road, N14. I was at the Walker School event -and it was a real eye opener.
You can read how Enfield Council is planning for vibrant town centres in the Local Plan here (Chapter 7).
We support better high streets and town centres as Better Streets. Part of making a high street healthy is reducing the impact of traffic on pedestrians visiting the town centre. Here is our response to this aspect of the Enfield Local Plan – don’t forget to respond to the Plan yourself via the online questionnaire by 28 February!
The Enfield Local Plan is a significant council strategy that will take us up to 2036, setting the direction for all types of housing development, transport, high streets and so on. We have until 28 February to comment on it.
