haringey planned ltnsA map showing the 25 low-traffic neighbourhood areas proposed for Haringey, plus some areas which are already effectively LTNs. Haringey Council says the map provides an "indication of the LTN areas" and "should be treated as a guide rather than a rule". (Adapted version of a map published on the Haringey Council website)

Ahead of the start of consultation on a new Walking and Cycling Action Plan, due to be considered by its Cabinet this week, Haringey Council has published a map of 25 "LTN areas" covering the vast majority of streets in the borough. Simultaneously, Haringey has launched the initial engagement phase for the three low-traffic neighbourhoods for which it has been allocated funding by Transport for London, including an LTN in Bounds Green which is adjacent to Enfield Council's Bowes quieter neighbourhood.

bounds green ltn commonplace mapHaringey Council is using Commonplace to enable people to pinpoint places where they consider there are problems or for which they have suggestions. The grey area is the Bowes LTN, currently being trialled by Enfield Council, and the green shaded area is the proposed new Bounds Green LTN

The proposed Bounds Green LTN adjoins Enfield's Bowes scheme and has two legs, one stretching towards Albert Road Recreation Ground (soon to be renamed in honour of Oliver Tambo), the other reaching as far as the landmark parish church in Wood Green. The estimated cost of the scheme is £290,000. Haringey Council so far only has funding for project initiation and engagement, which are costed at £70,000. However, at a meeting of Haringey Living Streets last week Cllr Matt White, the cabinet member for planning and corporate services, said that he hoped that the scheme would be implemented by June - though the timetable might be delayed because of "purdah" ahead of the London Assembly and Mayoral elections in May. Ahead of implementation there will be two more phases: preparation of detailed proposals based on feedback from phase 1; and a second engagement phase.
