A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
The new CPZ that is being put into the Nightingale/Truro/Clarence Road area has apparently been resheduled. There are signs on the lamposts saying it will start on 23rd January but it has been put back till 6th February 2016 . I don't think any residents have been informed but if you are buying Parking permits don't start them until 6th Feb. Several people had tried to buy permits online but it is not working effectively. You can take the documents down to Wood Green Library and get it processed there - this is not mentioned on the website.
Thank you, Kate. I *almost* bought a permit for another zone...that would have been fun....
Thanks for raising this Kate. We have raised these issues with officers and make sure that residents aren't disadvantaged.
Just to update. Firstly this new CPZ isn't part of an existing CPZ as is suggested in the title of the thread, and is therefore distinct from the existing Bounds Green CPZ. This new CPZ is Bounds Green East CPZ.
The delay in implementation is down to the weather and to the Christmas break.
I'm really cross about this. I'm resident in the new CPZ and followed the instructions in the letter sent out in December. I'm one of the "lucky" ones who received a permit (my husband still hasn't, and we applied and paid on the same day). However my permit is from 23 Jan and not the delayed date so I've paid for the extra two weeks. I've raised a complaint to get a replacement permit issued from the new date but given they appear to be overwhelmed by applications I'm not holding my breath. I'm also annoyed that there are still signs up with different dates (23 Jan on Shropshire Road, 6 Feb on Myddleton Road). It's a simple thing to get the signs right if they aren't going to send out letters to residents to inform them of the change. Can you raise this issue again please Joanna?
Yes I will do.
Can you or any other affected resident contact me at my council email address with some details such as your home address? My email address is Joanna.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks Joanna - I've sent you an email. Let me know if you need any further details.
Haringey are bloody crap at this.
I tried to apply online, went through pages and pages of uploading stuff, and the website crashed at the last page. I emailed them, no reply, tried calling - there were 40 other people in the queue.
I applied online again a week later, they took the money but no sign of a permit yet.
CPZ started 23rd Jan in my road. I notice there are loads of cars with no permits in my street, with no parking tickets. I finally get through to someone at Haringey who say "we are not issuing any parking tickets until 6th feb".
If you want to speak to someone at the Council call 020 8489 0000 and ask to speak to Ms Dayra Rios. She is the head of parking and you might be able to get some sense out of her.
What an absolutely joke.
Sounds absolutely awful.
What time of day did you call Sophie? I never even manage to get in a queue, let alone sit on it!
