Critics included the Brew House at Kenwood, Highgate Hospital, Heath users and residents.

Highgate Society transport spokesman Richard Webber said: "We are bemused by the decision and we cannot understand the logic of it. We will be asking serious questions of the leaders as to how the decision came about."
The CPZ will stop people parking between 10am and noon except those with residents' permits. It should be in operation by the end of March.
A Haringey Council spokeswoman said: "During our consultation, residents in Stormont and Denewood Roads and Sheldon Avenue said they wanted to be included in the CPZ and that is exactly what we are doing.
"We believe the extension will have a positive impact on tackling the problems caused by commuter parking in the area.
