A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Haringey Council is proposing to increase parking permit prices and introduce surcharges to diesel fuelled vehicles.
They say that the proposed changes will help to reduce parking pressures, congestion, reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality.
See below from their recent email and their website for more information:
The statutory consultation which starts on Wednesday 3 June, will run for a period of 21 days, closing on Wednesday 24 June, and proposes the following changes:
If the proposed changes are agreed by the council in September 2020, the new prices would be introduced in November 2020. For more information on these proposals, visit their current parking consultations page.
Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments on the proposals.
They would also like to take this opportunity to let you know that parking enforcement will be resuming soon and they will update Haringey residents once a date has been agreed.
Reading this and thinking of all the talk about change, I wonder if now is the time to push for the pedestrianisation of Myddleton Road. Deliveries and cleaning still happen at specific times in pedestrianised shopping streets. Of course, there will be issues. Many business park in the street-rather counter productive as customers cannot!
Streets around Myddleton do not want to see an increase in parking and that needs managing. But, surely if we are learning anything at the moment, it is time for some changes, particularly in an area with access to the best range of public transport.
Also, watch out for planning deregulation about to be brought in! Important issues for Myddleton.
Yes, I think that less cars and more street space on Myddleton Road would be an excellent idea.
I don't think it would necessarily have to be full pedestrianisation - perhaps removing half of the parking spaces and replacing them with areas for seating, planters on top of hidden rubbish bins, more bike parking etc. The road space could zig-zag, slowing down the cars and making the street altogether more safe and pleasant.
