Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Improved shop front design, fewer car parking spaces or more trees? https://opn8.co.uk/CENF_LNI @crouchendforum @HTHArtsCentre

The choices may not be quite that stark in Crouch End, but it will always be true that we can't do everything. So , for example, if we make our pavements wider and put in segregated cycle lanes, then there will be less room for cars to park. If we sell our Town Hall Square to private enterprise, then we have less control over what happens there. Except that's not an 'if' , and perhaps it's not possible to have less control than when Haringey are in charge. But these sorts of questions are up for debate as, for instance, the Liveable Neighbourhoods Initiative approaches.

It is very easy to be complacent about changes which won't happen for a year or two, but those in charge of our futures - for example, councillors, planning departments, Transport for London, Starbucks and McDonalds - plan on quite long timescales. So the time to have a say is now, while their plans exist only on paper, not in two years time, when the tarmac has been relaid, the street signs proliferated and you can no longer turn into the end of your road as you used to. In order to have a say you could try contacting Haringey, and telling them directly. One way to do this is set out below.

Or you can fill in the questionnaire devised by the Crouch End Neighbourhood Forum which they are running until August 2nd.
