Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

A fierce row has broken out over a north London council spending £86,000 on a rebranding exercise.

The deal to be signed off by Haringey Council cabinet members tomorrow and launched on Monday includes a new logo, a promotional video and pin badges for staff.

A council report says £40,000 will go on paying for an agency to give advice on ‘brand strategy and visual identity’.

It itemises £20,000 to be spent on a film promoting recruitment to the borough, £8,000 on new panels for refuse vehicles, £7,566 on staff identity cards and nearly £2,500 on pin badges.

This is only £21,000 more than they thought they would spend

However, cabinet member Cllr Joe Goldberg said: ‘Haringey is more than a place, it’s about its people and their pride, creativity and passion – and we need an identity that reflects the attitudes of our residents and businesses, which make us a unique corner of London.

‘The new brand identity is there to tell Haringey’s true story, and foremost to tell the stories of the people who live and work here.

‘This is not about the council, it is about being loud and proud about what brings people together – their achievements, their ideas and their contribution to moving us forward.’
