Lib Dems back residents of Quernmore Road

Liberal Democrats have backed local residents and traders in Stroud Green by supporting plans for money which had been earmarked for the painting of shop fronts to be diverted to the provision of CCTV in Quernmore Road.

The Lib Dems reviewed consultation responses from residents and gauged public support at the Stroud Green Residents Association on 28th February 2007.

Liberal Democrat councillors will now be lobbying Haringey Council to match funding for the installation of CCTV in the shopping parade in Stroud Green. CCTV has long been called for by local residents, commuters and traders. A Liberal Democrat survey last year showed very strong support for the idea; this was reinforced by an enthusiastic response from local residents and traders at a residents’ association meeting this week.

Cllr Laura Edge (Stroud Green) comments:

“I am pleased that a consensus seems to be developing on how to spend this money in a way which will hopefully bring real benefits to Quernmore Road. I will work with the Council to make the installation of CCTV possible.”
