  • Coppermill area proposals

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    Council says:

    In 2018, Waltham Forest Council was successful in securing initial funding from Transport for London (TfL) to develop a Liveable Neighbourhoods scheme in the Coppermill Area.

    For the past 12 months we have been engaging with residents, businesses and local accessibility groups and key stakeholders to find out what they would like to see improved. Based on this feedback we have created a set of proposals for the area. We are now starting a public consultation on our proposals and want everyone who lives or works in the area to have their say on the proposals to help shape the final improvements.

  • Markhouse area

    Created by Simon Munk // 1 thread

    From the council site:

    The Enjoy Waltham Forest programme is about making our streets work for everyone, and our borough a better place to live, work and travel around.

    The Markhouse Area is one of the residential areas we are investing in and it is the final residential scheme identified in our original funding bid to Transport for London. The Markhouse Area scheme aims to build on the changes already introduced in some of the neighbouring areas, including Walthamstow Village, Hoe Street-Wood Street Area and Leyton Town Centre, and will complement the improvements currently taking place along Lea Bridge Road and at Walthamstow Central.

    Summary of proposals

    The Markhouse Area scheme is framed by Hoe Street, Selbourne Road, Markhouse Road and Lea Bridge Road. The area consists of almost 5,000 households and businesses, and includes six schools, a children’s centre and learning centre, which are attended by more than 4,500 pupils.

    A key feature of the scheme involves returning the streets to local people by discouraging non-local traffic from cutting through the area, making the streets safer, quieter and more enjoyable for everyone. The scheme will help create a better environment for walking and cycling, will support the local economy by making the shopping experience more pleasant, and aims to improve the overall look and feel of the area with more greenery and planting, which the community can take pride and ownership of.

    The Markhouse Area scheme aims to:
    Reduce the non-local traffic
    Improve the look, feel and safety of the streets for everyone
    Improve routes to and from local schools, shops and places of interest
    Encourage people to use sustainable, active and healthy modes of transport.
    The proposals combine a mixture of timed and permanent road closures, traffic direction changes, safety improvements and environment enhancements. To ensure the proposed improvements are effective, some of them have been combined into Series of proposals. This is because the proposed improvements in each Series are reliant on each other to be effective and need to be delivered together.

  • Enfield Transport Plan - Local Implementation Plan

    Created by Clare Rogers // 1 thread

    "The Enfield Transport Plan (ETP) outlines what we will do over the next few years to improve those parts of the transport network which the Council is responsible for. Alongside this there will be continuing maintenance and, at the other end of the scale, delivery of strategic projects, such as the new Meridian Water station.

    The core of the ETP is Enfield’s third Local Implementation Plan (LIP), which is a statutory document setting out how the Council proposes to help implement the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy. The LIP also details how we propose to spend funding received from Transport for London (TfL).

    At the heart of the plan is improving people’s health. Our local priorities reflect this, with a focus on making travel more sustainable, active and safe:

    • Making active travel the natural choice, particularly for those trips less than 2km in length.
    • Making more school trips safe, sustainable and healthy.
    • Reducing the impact of private vehicles on our streets.
    • Making the public transport network more accessible and the
    natural choice for longer trips.
    • Maintaining our assets for the benefit of the public."
