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.

Cycle Enfield – The debate

Reserve the date – We Need Your Support

Thursday 28th January 2016 starting at 7pm

Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield EN1 3XA

                             
Here’s why
Over the last few months, FERAA and other action groups have been working extremely hard on the campaign to save our major roads and Town Centre from the Cycle Enfield scheme. We all want to persuade Enfield Council to develop a local cycle safety scheme that is good for cyclists AND residents. The current plans will tear up a large part of our major roads and impose heavy traffic restrictions that will diminish the quality of life for thousands. The cycle scheme will lie largely unused.

We have held numerous residents’ meetings and made representations to the Council but it has refused to enter into meaningful discussions. This Council has a fixed idea of what will benefit its residents and will not take their views into account.

Given the cost of making a mistake it must be worth it to pause and hold meaningful talks but our elected representatives are still denying us this route.

So the Opposition Party has tabled a debate before the full Council on the wisdom of this scheme on – Thursday 28th January 2016, 7pm at the Civic Centre.

Free parking in the area from 6.30pm.

Everyone will be affected by Cycle Enfield. Do come and hear the arguments and lend us your support for a better scheme. To get the Council to listen we need a strong turnout on the 28th to make clear the demands of the overwhelming majority of residents.

We hope to see you there.

Peter Gibbs

Chairman
