The campaign to ease Crouch End's traffic problems gathered pace this week as Haringey Council issued a draft document for community consultation.
The move has been welcomed by residents' organisations and traders who have been petitioning the council since the introduction of new CPZs in neighbouring Islington streets brought parking chaos to parts of Crouch End.
The problem has been acute in the Crouch Hill area where a number of meetings have been held between residents and council officials, including environment boss Cllr Brian Haley. Two debates and workshops were held in October and December last year at Hornsey Town Hall.
The council says the aim of CPZs would be to 'discourage non-resident parking, displacement parking and commuter parking, by prioritising the needs of residents and the local community.' New zones would be identified on a 'road to road' basis.

The cost of business permits for parking in specific bays would be £225 and residential permits will cost between £15 and £90, depending on the age or CO2 emission band of the vehicle. Second permits per household would cost up to £150.
