OUR survey last week highlighted the deadening impact Haringey Council's new parking regime is having on trade in Muswell Hill and Crouch End. The council stands accused of lining its own pockets at the expense of local traders, who have enough to worry about these days without their own local authority adding to their woes. It's not much fun for motorists either.

A former leader of the council, Charles Adje, once promised Broadway readers that the council would never turn parking enforcement into a revenue stream under his watch. He was true to his promise but is no longer the leader and things have changed for the worse. For the council to be making life harder for local traders in these times is nothing short of disgraceful.
