Haringey Borough Council's parking consultation ends
Haringey Borough Council has postponed a report of its latest parking consultation after an “unprecedented” response.
More than 1,600 residents and businesses responded to the north Tottenham parking survey, which ended this week.
The authority was due to prepare a report on the response in September – but after an overwhelming response, it will instead come to cabinet in October.
Fresh proposals including managing the increased parking demand of new homes, shops and schools as part of Tottenham’s regeneration project, were unveiled in June.
The two-month consultation period offered people the chance to comment on parking proposals in the area.
Throughout the consultation, a stand was on show at Coombes Croft Library, in Tottenham High Road, and people were invited to drop-in sessions around the area.
Cllr John Bevan, cabinet member for environment, said: “It’s great news that so many residents and traders took the time to let us know what they think about the parking proposals and how they might be affected by them.
“We want to be sure that we give careful consideration to all of the responses, and make sure that everyone’s views have been taken into account.
"To do this will take longer than expected, meaning the proposals will now be presented to the cabinet in October.
“We’re grateful to everyone who took the time to respond to the consultation, and we look forward to sharing the findings with them as soon as possible.”
The report will be presented to cabinet on October 15.
