Millionaire's Row status is no excuse for council to neglect Highgate

The news that Courtenay Avenue in Highgate has been described as the UK's "most expensive street" should just be seen as another indicator of widespread growing prosperity.
However I have a real concern that Haringey Council will just see this as further excuse to perceive Highgate as a leafy, wealthy ward that it can continue to neglect.
The reality is that there are many households within the ward at the low end of any wealth scale who desperately need more support in terms of the services that they receive.
For a long time now, Haringey Council has consistently under-spent in Highgate. It has especially failed to make any provision for young people and the elderly, and the current prospects for improvements in every day issues like potholes and lighting remain dim.
