Additional documents:



The Cabinet Member for Climate Action, Environment and Transport considered the  attached report which  outlined  the collaboration between the Council and TFL to optimise  bus routes through Wood Green and the Heartlands site. 


The report specifically sought to determine whether proposed changes to the highway to facilitate extension of bus routes 91, N91 and 232 to the Heartlands area in Wood Green should be implemented. The extension of these bus routes was consulted upon by Transport for London (TfL) between October and December 2023 and a decision was taken on 14 March 2024 to proceed to extend these routes so that in the future they would serve the new Haringey Heartlands Development, which is near completion.

It was noted that to enable the bus routes to run along Mayes Road, Coburg Road, Mary Neuner Road, Western Road and Clarendon Road (slightly different route for 91 and 232), statutory consultation on the proposed changes to the highway, outlined in Appendix A was carried out by Haringey Council between 17 January and 7 February 2024. This was carried out after TfL undertook its consultation but before it took the decision to proceed with the route extension.

The proposed highway changes consulted upon comprised new bus stops and a stand, revised highway alignments, waiting and loading restrictions, raised tables and a zebra crossing.

The proposed changes consulted upon, including their effect on parking, are detailed in paragraph 5.6 below and shown in the plans in Appendix A. These are summarised below:

• Provision of 5 new bus stops.

• Provision of 1 new bus stand.

• Provision of 2 raised junction tables one with a zebra crossing at entrance to Heartlands development on Western Road.

• Provide double yellow lines (138m) – loading permitted.

• Provide double yellow lines (no waiting and no loading) (73.5m)

• Removal of 17 shared (paid for or permit holder) spaces.


Removal of 22 resident permit holder parking spaces

• Removal of 4 business permit holder spaces

• Removal of single yellow line parking (42m)


The Cabinet Member noted that Ward Councillors had been offered a briefing session on proposals before  decision and no indications of objections received.
