Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Do you want a 20mph borough wide speed limit - Let Haringey know.

I really thought they'd decided, but no, they have to pretend to have a consultation. In the Haringey Consultation charter it says:

• We will communicate clearly about the purpose of the consultation, who is being
consulted, the way we are consulting and when decisions will be taken on proposals

but I can only find lip service to any of these things - I'm not even sure they've got the tense right on this page ('who was consulted' before the questions are even asked)

The questionnaire is surprisingly short and unusually well directed - a page on your address and status, one question asking do you agree? yes/no. And a box for comments. No hint anywhere though of how much opposition / support there has to be to proceed/not.

Time for a 20mph speed limit?

Borough-wide 20mph speed limit

We want to know what you think about a possible borough-wide 20mph speed limit.

Some 50% of Haringey’s roads are already part of 20mph zones or 20mph limits. 20mph zones are self enforcing in that they have humps and raised tables which compel traffic to slow down. Unlike zones, which have traffic calming measures, 20mph limits are defined by signs and road markings. No speed humps or cushions would be introduced as part of the 20mph limit.

We propose introducing a 20mph speed limit on all roads for which we are responsible as the highway authority (excluding red routes for which Transport for London (TfL) is responsible).

Additional information, including frequently asked questions (FAQ), is set out in our 20mph consultation document (PDF, 1MB). This also  contains general information and details of those towns and boroughs who are considering introducing, or who have already introduced, 20mph limits.

You may also like to take a look at information on 20mph speed limits available on the internet, before deciding what you think about its possible introduction in Haringey.
