Barking up the Wrong Tree again?

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 consultants'…See More

Cranford Way London Concrete Factory - here we go again?

Local residents will remember the battle against the establishment of the concrete factory in Cranford Way, just yards from a children's playground at Chettle Court at the end of Mountview and Ridge Roads. Towards the end of last year I got the impression that London Concrete who operate this site were exceeding the number of vehicles and movements and these drivers were often taking short cuts along Oakfield Road and then exiting via the ladder roads. I asked Haringey to investigate and…See More

"It is and it isn't - Stroud Green geographically could be added to an Islington consituency but us residents of Hornsey Vale would be just as angry as having to join Tottenham!"

A hidden parking increase...

Posted on September 16, 2017 at 19:42 1 Comment

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…
