Laura Edge, Lib Dem councillor for Stroud Green, has welcomed an assurance from Haringey Council that it will repair dangerous pavements in the Quernmore Road approach to Harringay Station, N4.

This is the latest success for Cllr Edge and local residents who have worked hard with Haringey’s Neighbourhood Management Team for 18 months to clean up the area that has been neglected and had become a hotspot for crime and petty vandalism. Improvements so far have included the installation of new street lighting, hanging baskets, new litterbins and new tree plantings, as well as the removal of a vandalised bench, paint on the pavement outside the library and the arrangement for better waste disposal for local businesses.

The repairs to the station approach complement improvements to the cleanliness and safety of the station itself which have been achieved thanks to lobbying by Lynne Featherstone MP.

Cllr Edge (Stroud Green) comments:

“This area has long been a blight on the neighbourhood – it has been an uphill struggle but we are finally starting to see improvements. This is in no small part down to the vision and dedication of local resident and I hope to continue to work with them and with Lib Dem activists and Lynne Featherstone MP to continue to transform the character of the area”.
