A 12-week consultation on the northern part of the Hertford Road Cycle Enfield project will start at the end of June.

The A1010 North consultation will kick-off at the Dharma Centre in Hertford Road on 30 June with an exclusive day for local business owners to come along (between 4 and 8pm) to discuss the plans with council officers. This will be followed by a two-day event on the 1 and 2 July for local residents, and then a 12-week consultation period for all residents to have their say.

The plans for the A1010 North are being funded through the Mayor of London's multi-million pound Mini Holland programme, which provides an investment opportunity to help make a better Enfield by creating healthier streets for everyone.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson said "We're excited about the opportunities that Cycle Enfield offers to help improve this key road through the Eastern part of our borough. We want to enhance this environment for everyone, however they choose to travel. With this investment we can help to create safe and pleasant places to live, shop and do business.

"We are continuing to listen and respond to the issues that are raised throughout the extensive Cycle Enfield consultation process. To that end, I urge the people who live and work in this area of the borough to come along, look at the plans and tell us what they think.

"We are particularly keen to hear from local community groups and organisations, and officers will happily meet with any such bodies as requested."

Enfield Council has also produced a summary of the feedback from the A1010 South consultation held earlier in the year. Amendments have been made in light of the comments received and a report with recommendations will go to Cabinet next month to allow decisions to be taken about the next steps. All being well, it is hoped to start work on the project immediately after the A105 (Palmers Green to Enfield Town) scheme.

The Council is also taking more time to consider the Enfield Town and Southbury Road routes and is looking in depth at how best to respond to some of the issues that were raised in the consultation and revised plans will be brought forward later in the year.

Cycle Enfield will transform our high streets and town centres, promote more active forms of travel and create safe and secure cycle lanes. This investment in our borough will help us to share and enhance the space that we have available, creating safer, greener and quieter streets. Quite simply, a better Enfield for everyone.
