A sign of things to come

Days after Labour confirmed their decision to spend £12 million on a new Civic Centre, new signs have appeared outside the old Civic Centre. Liberal Democrats have criticised the waste of the replacement signs, showing designated parking bays for councillors, and have pointed out an additional embarrassment to Haringey Council – the signs include spelling mistakes.

Cllr Robert Gorrie, the Haringey Liberal Democrat Leader who spotted the error, commented:

“Firstly, replacing these signs at all was unnecessary and a waste of residents’ money and, secondly, the lack of attention to detail is so poor they will have to be done again – wasting yet more money.

“If Haringey Labour cannot even organise replacement signs correctly at the old Civic Centre just think of the size of the mistakes they can make spending £12 million on a new Civic Centre.”
