Date for public meeting on Enfield's 'mini-Holland' scheme announced

Enfield Independent: The mini-Holland scheme will give £30million to Enfield Borough Council The mini-Holland scheme will give £30million to Enfield Borough Council

A public meeting has been organised for to discuss the plans for a multi-million pound cycling scheme.

The Enfield Society funded the first public meeting since the local elections two months ago and will discuss the ‘mini-Holland’ scheme, which aims to use £30 million to create a more cycle-friendly borough.

The money was won by Enfield Borough Council earlier this year as part of Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s plans to increase cycling in the capital.

The scheme has caused controversy among shop owners and residents in Enfield Town as initial plans suggest a cycle scheme through Enfield Town centre, with Cecil Road becoming a two-way street.

However, cabinet members at Enfield Council have reiterated that consultation will take place before final plans are set in place.

The Enfield Town Conservation Area Study Group will host the event in the Civic Centre conference room, on Silver Street, Enfield on Wednesday, July 30 at 7.30pm.

Transport, traffic and urban design consultant Ben Hamilton-Baillie will be the guest speaker as the public comes together to discuss the scheme.

I think the traders concerns are valid and I hope they'll be taken seriously. People are lazy, if they can't park close to a local shop they'll head for the big supermarkets with acres of free parking instead.
