Residents in Ramsey Court, Crouch End today received welcome news when Haringey Council agreed to back down on controversial new parking restrictions. The back down follows pressure from local councillor Lynne Featherstone.

Hornsey Housing Manager, Peter Purdie, has written to Cllr Featherstone agreeing to suspend the new parking restrictions. Residents in the block have enjoyed off-street parking spaces for many years and were horrified when large notice boards suddenly appeared announcing a ban on parking.

The Council had introduced the restrictions in an attempt to solve access problems for the dustbin men. The Council has now agreed to consider other solutions and to consult residents fully before making a final decision.

Councillor Lynne Featherstone (Lib Dem) comments:

“I am glad that the Council is now listening to residents and agreed to consider other options. Haringey Council really must learn to consult residents properly in future.”
