A public meeting to discuss the plans for a multi-million pound cycling scheme will take place tonight.

Cycle Enfield (formally known as mini-Holland) will be discussed tonight at Enfield Borough Council’s civic centre, in Silver Street.

The £30million scheme was won by the local authority as part of Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s ambition to increase cycling in the capital.

The meeting, funded by the Enfield Society, will be hosted by the Enfield Town Conservation Area Study Group with transport, traffic and guest speaker Ben Hamilton-Baillie, an urban design consultant.

The scheme has caused controversy among shop owners and residents in Palmers Green and Enfield Town as initial plans suggested a cycle route through Enfield Town centre and making Cecil Road a two-way street.
