He has been instrumental over the last four years in delivering Enfield’s successful Mini-Holland bid - the £42m Cycle Enfield project - and in securing the recent £6m Liveable Neighbourhood bid for Enfield Town.

Daniel’s overriding vision throughout has been about transforming Enfield's high streets & town centres; promoting more active forms of travel to improve our residents’ health; and creating safe and secure cycle lanes to be used by all, young and old alike.

As a result, Enfield is seeing the creation of a network of high-quality cycle routes across the entire Borough including major routes such as the A105 and A1010, along with secondary link routes. It also includes the Quieter Neighbourhood programme that looks to return our streets to the people who live in them, along with supportive measures such as dockless hire bikes, cycle hubs and hangers, the ‘ Dr Bike’ maintenance programmes, second-hand bike markets, guided cycle rides and individually tailored training opportunities.

The first completed section (the A105) has already won the ‘Best New Cycling Project’ award at the London Cycling Awards and the ‘Sustainable Mobility’ award at the Sustainable City Awards.
