Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Haringey Friends of Parks Forum (a consortium of the Friends of individual parks) is running a petition based on the sentence

" We are appealing to the Council to use the current consultation exe..." 

The petition is available to print out and sign.

 

The Haringey Federation of Residents Associations (HFRA) is also campaigning on this issue and has written a letter to councillors

 

The wording of the petition is 

Haringey Friends of Parks Forum 

NO TO CUTS IN HARINGEY PARKS! 

No cuts to staffing, maintenance budgets or on-site depots.  

Support our parks’ workers!

We the undersigned are extremely concerned about, and object to…

the slashing of local park budgets by over 50% (£1m) 

the threat of drastic cuts to the number of staff working in our parks. Staff are currently being consulted over compulsory redundancies - we send them our support. 

plans to close a number of parks’ depots or lease them out to street cleaning teams 

We believe this will make our green spaces unsafe, and return them back to the shocking neglect of the 1980/90s. We call on the Council to halt the plans.

 

I think they should set up an e-petition on Haringey's site and recruit surfers.

This is depressing isn't it? I'll definitely print and sign - the parks round here are one of the few things that make living in London bearable for me.
