Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Hi all, I live in crouch end parking zone A. It's an absolute nightmare to park as we live so close to the Broadway. We only have 2 hours Monday to Friday to park on our street. The rest of the time I cannot find a parking space & end up circling around for ages and parking so far from my flat. Its super frustrating when I have shopping etc. Would anyone be interesting in increasing the hours for residents only parking? And maybe introduce a couple hours on the weekends. I realise in order to keep the local shops open we need to allow for parking, however, I don't feel like, as residents I feel we could use a few more hours. Let me know what you all think.
Some interesting misconceptions cropping up in the Facebook thread:
Now none of the first set of reasons applies to Crouch End - no non-residents drive into CE simply to park, any one who does drive in has a reason, for example to run a barber's shop, to sell meat or write exaggerated prose about the expensive houses. So the excuse for any CPZ at all is pretty thin, and derives almost entirely from the knock on effects of surrounding areas which actually do need them.
