1. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of The London Borough of Enfield (the Council) on 12 August 2020 made The Enfield (Prescribed Routes) (No. 5) Experimental Traffic Order 2020, under sections 9 and 10 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. The Order referred to in this paragraph will come into force on 24 August 2020.
2. The general effect of the Order will be, on an experimental basis, to ban motor vehicles from entering and leaving the lengths of road specified in the Schedule to this Notice, during certain times of the day. This will be achieved by making those lengths of road pedestrian and cycle zones and by placing barriers at certain points, including in adjacent roads at their junctions with the pedestrian and cycle zones, preventing motor vehicles from entering and leaving those zones. The pedestrian and cycle zones and barriers can be in operation between 8.15 am and 9.15 am and between 2.45 pm and 3.45 pm on Mondays to Fridays, although in practice it is anticipated that they will only operate during these hours in school term-time when the traffic signs are showing, and the barriers are in place.
3. Disabled blue badge holders' vehicles and access permit holders' vehicles will be permitted to enter and leave the pedestrian and cycle zones. Access Permits will be available to properties within or accessible only via the lengths of road specified in the Schedule to this Notice, maximum 2 per household. Entry to and exit from the Sketty Road pedestrian and cycle zone will be via the barriers in Sketty Road, at either end of the zone, and not via the side roads.
4. Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic the experimental orders, statement of reasons and plans cannot currently be inspected at the Civic Centre. However, in line with guidance from the Department for Transport, the following alternative arrangements have been made:
a) the experimental Order referred to in paragraph 1, the statement of reasons and plans can be inspected online at:
b) copies of the documents referred to above can also be obtained by calling the above telephone number, or by emailing traffic@enfield.
or by writing to Traffic & Transportation (quoting reference TG52/1456), Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield, Middlesex, EN1 3XD.
These arrangements will apply until the Orders cease to have effect.
5. The Council will consider in due course whether the provisions of the Order referred to in paragraph 1 of this Notice should be continued in force indefinitely by means of a permanent Order made under section 6 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Any person may object to the making of the permanent Order for the purpose of such indefinite continuation, within a period of six months beginning with the date on which the experimental Order comes into force or, if the Order is varied by another Order or modified pursuant to section 10(2) of the 1984 Act, beginning with the date on which the variation or modification or the latest variation or modification comes into force. Any such objection must be made in writing and must state the grounds on which it is made and be sent to the Head of Traffic and Transportation, the Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield, Middlesex, EN1 3XD, or by e-mail to traffic@enfield.
, quoting the reference TG 1456
6. Under the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, any letter you write to the Council in response to this Notice may, upon written request, be made available to the press and to the public, who will be entitled to take copies of it if they so wished.
7. Anyone wishing to question the validity of the Order or of any of its provisions on the grounds that it is not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, or that any requirement of that Act or of any instrument made under that Act has not been complied with, that person may, within 6 weeks from the date on which the Order was made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.
