Haringey announce 129% increase in cost of two-hour CPZ permit

Haringey plan a 129% increase in the cost of two-hour CPZ parking permits you have only 7 days to object.. Haringey are proposing ludicrous and expensive changes to the system for temporary parking permits which will affect residents in two-hour zones particularly heavily . At present it is possible to purchase a two hour permit for a two hour zone so that a visitor, whether private or trade, can park legally without fear of being issued with a PCN. This costs 70p at present. Under the proposal…See More

A hidden parking increase...

Posted on September 16, 2017 at 19:42 3 Comments

Haringey are stealthy increasing the amount it will cost to park in the 'Stop and Shop' zones - normally to increase parking charges there would have to be various procedures to follow - not this time.  Up until now people wishing to park could buy the appropriate amount of parking time from a machine - the cost of maintaining these machines being borne by Haringey.  Fearing the cost of converting the machines to accept the new £1 coins Haringey has a wonderful wheeze - remove the machines…

Barking up the Wrong Tree again?

Posted on May 26, 2017 at 19:23 5 Comments

This evening on the way past the Central Library I noticed that a sign had been placed on one of the three very large trees outside the main body of the building explaining that it was to be removed because it was continuing to cause damage to the pavement and other solutions had proved useless.  How sad I thought, still these things happen, and then I looked at my feet on the pavement and noticed that it was not damaged to any great extent at all.  However there were three 'tree…
