Lib Dem councillor David Winskill has criticised Haringey Council for their continued failure to repair unsafe footpaths that pose a potential risk to residents’ safety. Cllr Winskill has repeatedly tried to help residents in Crouch End by reporting hazardous paving stones to Haringey Council but his efforts have been ignored.
On 7th June he reported two missing paving slabs and an uneven walking surface by the fountain at Hornsey Central Library in Haringey Park – these have yet to be repaired.
Cllr David Winskill (Crouch End) comments:
“Uneven and damaged footpaths can be a real danger to residents – especially the elderly. Haringey Council needs to ensure that it has a proactive approach. Two weeks after these hazards were reported the slabs are still missing.
“There are lots of other examples of problems of rats, pot holes, defective signage, dumped rubbish that have had to be pursued time and time again to get anything done.
“Haringey Council just can’t seem to get a culture of get it right and get it right first time.”
