Map showing the current trial Bowes LTN in Enfield and the area covered by a proposed Bounds Green LTN in Haringey

Enfield Council is inviting "final comments" on the low-traffic neighbourhood (LTN) trial in the west of Bowes ward - formally referred to as the Bowes Primary Area Quieter Neighbourhood. Comments must be made by email or post and the deadline is 21st November.

The LTN trial began in August 2020. In June this year the council announced that it would be extended until it became possible "to collect traffic data that is more representative of ‘normal’ conditions". Following the lifting of lockdown and the return to school, the council carried out data collection towards the end of September and is reviewing it with the intention of publishing a report before the end of the year.

Any new comments will be considered alongside those received during the previous consultation, which ran from September 2020 until the beginning of May 2021.

Bowes Primary Area Quieter Neighbourhood: Update 1st November 2021

The Bowes Primary Area Quieter Neighbourhood was implemented as a trial under Experimental Traffic Orders (ETOs) and the project has been under review since implementation.

Restrictions on travel due to Covid-19 were lifted fully in July 2021 and with schools returning in early September, a further set of traffic data was collected towards the end of that month to help assess the impacts of this trial. The Council is now reviewing this data with the intention of publishing a report (following the interim report published in June 2021) before the end of the year.

Prior to finalising this report, we would like to offer you a further opportunity to share with us any final comments on the Bowes Primary Area Quieter Neighbourhood trial. All responses will be considered alongside objections and representations previously made during the consultation period (held from 28 September 2020 to 2 May 2021). If you would like to do so, please make your objection or representation in writing stating the grounds on which it is being made and quoting the reference TG52/1454. You can send this via one of the following means:

This further opportunity to provide comment will close at 11.59pm on Sunday 21st November 2021. Please note that any letter or email you write to the Council in response to the ETO may, upon written request, be made available to the press or to the public.

Whilst the Council will not be providing individual responses to any further comments, these will be responded to in the published report, along with the rest of feedback that has already been received.

The monitoring plan for the project, along with a range of additional information, remains available on the dedicated project page:


The Bowes Primary Area Quieter Neighbourhood refers to measures implemented as a trial in Summer 2020. The trial introduced a number of measures including modal filters on Warwick Road, Maidstone Road, York Road and Palmerston Road.

Haringey Council is currently investigating similar measures in the area and is analysing results of the consultation undertaken in August / September 2021 on proposed trial measures. Further information can be found on Haringey’s website here(External link).
