A105, Green Lanes February Exhibition
This exhibition was held at The Fox Public House on Green Lanes, on Wed 11 February 2015 from 3-8pm.
This exhibition was an opportunity for members of the local community to provide their early comments, ideas and issues so that these can be incorporated into the preliminary designs. This will not be the only opportunity, read more here.
How was the event advertised?
We advertised this exhibition through a range of different sources:
- Promotion on the Enfield Council website homepage.
- Promotion on the Cycle Enfield website.
- Newspaper adverts in the following local papers: Advertiser, Independent, Parikiaki and Londra (adverts were shown during both week commencing 26th January and 2nd February).
- Promotion through the Cycle Enfield social media channels (Facebook & Twitter).
- Notification via e-mail to those signed up to the Cycle Enfield Newsletter.
- Posters distributed to every school in the borough.
- Flyers distributed to 17 libraries, Civic Centre reception, the Dugdale Centre, John Wilkes House and Charles Babbage House.
- Article in ‘Our Enfield’ that is delivered to every home in the borough.
In addition to this promotion by the Council, local businesses also promoted the event along Palmers Green High Street, encouraging local traders to attend.
What happened at the event?
There were a series of displays providing more information about Cycle Enfield, including an overview of the different potential routes and further insight into the project stages and timescales.
Route Specific Maps
We also displayed a map which showed the A105 from Enfield Town to Palmers Green – this particular route was the focus for this exhibition.
Visitors had the opportunity to discuss what the scheme might look like with the designers and Council Officers. They were encouraged to stick different coloured post-it notes on the map to record their comments (yellow), ideas (green) and issues (pink). There were also A4 forms were people could provide more detailed observations.
A copy of the route corridor map that was shown is available here.
What happens to all the comments?
We have recorded all the comments provided on the maps and transferred them into electronic format. A copy of all the comments recieved is here.
We are still transferring the more detailed 'Zone 7' comments that vistors were able to complete on A4 sheets. Once this process is complete these comments will also be uploaded.
As the designs are developed, we will record an observation against each comment received to provide a record of how that comment has been considered. This record will also be available to view but not until we have completed the first design phase.
Cross Section Drawings
We also showed some cross-section drawings. The purpose of these was to illustrate how the available space could be reallocated to incorporate cycle lanes.
There were two types of cross-section boards available, one that showed possible designs within the retail environment, and another within the residential stretches of the road.
For the retail area, the example cross sections shows a stretch of Palmers Green high street, which is twenty-one metres wide. We understand that there are points along Green Lanes where the road is narrower than this. Designs will therefore vary along the route according to the space available.
The residential cross sections also show a variety of ways the space can be used. A range of the examples shown could be used along different stretches, depending on the space available and the requirements of a particular area.
The retail cross sections can be downloaded here.
The residential cross sections can be downloaded here.
What happens next?
Don’t worry if you missed this exhibition. There will be another A105 Exhibition event over the summer where you can have a further opportunity to influence the designs as they are developed.
Following these next round of exhibitions, there will then be a formal public consultation on the A105 proposals.
Can I still comment?
There will be another public exhibition in Jul - dates to follow soon, where the next stage of consultation will start.
