Living Streets Haringey – meeting summary

Good turnout to the first public meeting for Living Streets Haringey. Lots of interesting debates and ideas about how to implement low-traffic neighbourhoods in Haringey.

Below is a summary of the group’s aims. RCRA, along with other local Res Assocs (Parkside Malvern, Palace Gates), want to work closely with Living Streets so that closing our rat-run becomes part of a wider change in the borough putting the interests and welfare of kids, pedestrians and residents before the interests of through traffic.

Meeting – Ideas To Improve Our Streets

DSC_8467
We had a really good response to the shout out for ideas to improve our streets by applying to the council fund.
Suggestions included more trees – especially on Bradley Road – planters on the pavement which could double up as bike racks (see pic below) and murals on some of the ends of terraces (maybe done by the artists in Wood Green Works).
Abs at Cafe Corso has kindly offered the cafe as a meeting place to discuss the ideas  – next Friday, 1st February @ 5pm. Come along and if you can’t make it email us your thoughts/comments.
