Raglan School road safety news

Five years ago I launched a Raglan School road safety campaign with three key aims;
✅ Pedestrian Crossing – Delivered!
✅ Extended zig zag lines – Delivered!
➡️ 20mph zone – plan being consulted on.
We are now on the brink of securing all three aims. A lot of hard work has gone into pressing the Labour Council for action.
Please see the proposal image for a 20mph limit. Consultation letters are going out in a few days time.

Edmonton A10 Skatepark update – huge progress

Firstly congratulations to Enfield Chace and Enfield Grammer School for amazing mural artwork at the Skatepark. As background, back in October I flagged with the Council that the skatepark was very grey and needed brightening up. From this the Council commissioned a local artist who has consulted with skatepark users.

Still more work to be done at the Skatepark and spotted a few issues that will take up with the Council.
Since March 2021 I have been raising the neglected condition of the skatepark with Enfield Council. This has involved a lot of time and effort including many site visits – but we have now seen significant progress made in two years.
It is now looking much better. Improvements secured:
🚜 Area torn up during cemetery expansion (pictured right) now resurfaced as above.
🚮 New bins installed and regular litter picking of the site.
🕳Potholes near ramps repaired.
🌳Maintenance works on the trees/bushes/grass.
✅ New fencing barrier installed.
🌿 Planting area created.
❗️Graffiti continues to be removed from old toilet building / ramps. Some had swear words.
If anyone has ideas of how we can improve the site further please let me know.
