Further to recent postings on our website with regard to the Cycle Enfield proposals we have been receiving a range of comments for and against the scheme.

Unfortunately the very nature of the scheme and the way it has been handled by the Council has, in many cases, polarised opinion and turned it into a very divisive issue  with  either ‘for’ or ‘against’ camps with little leeway for anything in between.

As a Committee, representing the Association, we decided not to hold a referendum of members, but to register some of our concerns to the original proposals. We decided to leave it to members to respond individually to the consultation.

At the end of our paper noting concerns we stated:

In addition to the above, as an Association we should point out that we are very much in favour of supporting an increase in SAFE cycling in Enfield. The issue is one of what is practical and which does not contradict the other strategic objectives of supporting and enabling all use of Enfield’s amenities and delivering a thriving economy.

We should be making cycling open to all, as in Denmark, Germany etc., however, it should also be fair to all, including, and especially, pedestrians and public transport users.”

At no time did we say or have we said that we were for or against the proposals.

The Committee felt that had we had a referendum, and based upon experience of other consultations, it would have been a minority of members who would have responded, and the majority result of those responses would force the Association into the for or against camp.

What we have done is publish, where possible, details of what is happening and of papers etc. that are, or have been, submitted. We have not made any particular judgements on the content of some of those papers.

As with most residents, we recognise the benefits, both health and economic, of a reduction in the levels of car usage and the promotion of cycling for all ages. However, we do feel that this should not be to the detriment of pedestrians and public transport users.

We intend to continue to provide members with details of the latest proposals etc for Cycle Enfield as and when we can.
