Wall of shame

The Haringey Wall of Shame has been created so you can help us catch those illegally dumping rubbish on our streets.

Fly-tipping is rubbish dumped illegally onto the street, alleyways or on any private or public land. Fly-tipping is a crime that blights our streets in Haringey and across London. It is disgusting, selfish and costs taxpayers in Haringey more than £3million a year.

Our enforcement teams work non-stop to catch fly-tippers and we have tough measures to deal with those we catch. But we need your help to identify them and tackle fly-tipping.

Do you know any of these people caught on camera? If you do, get in touch.

Tottenham store has licence revoked

Our Trading Standards Officers deserve a special mention after managing to get a licence revoked from Tilson Stores in Tottenham, as they continued to ignore the rules and sold illicit alcohol.

Trading Standards worked closely with HMRC and found 162 litres of wine and 504 litres of beer that were non-duty paid and amounted to £1,124.82.

The defendants had been previously fined £6,000 for an offence related to illicit tobacco and alcohol back in 2016, but failed to learn from their mistake and have now paid the penalty. It is imperative that local businesses follow the correct guidelines and do not go down the same route.

Designated parking bays for disabled Haringey residents

Disabled residents with restricted or severe mobility issues will be able to secure designated parking bays outside their homes following a decision by Haringey Council’s Cabinet.

There are currently 2,800 disabled parking bays across the borough, but local users of the Blue Badge scheme are increasingly finding that the bays installed for their use are being parked in by other badge holders from across the capital and beyond.

The new arrangement will allow our disabled residents to request that a Designated Disabled Parking Bay be installed either outside or near their home or workplace in Haringey for the sole use of that specific applicant. The service will start in January 2020.

Time to party as Haringey turns car-free for the day

Have you ever wanted to reclaim your road from traffic and turn it into a street party? Well now is your big opportunity.

To celebrate Car-Free Day, Haringey is closing a number of roads in the borough and turning them into a streets of play. Without the fear of traffic, children can play freely near their homes and have the space to play energetically.

There will be two council-run events in Middle Lane, Crouch End and Tottenham Green Market where families and their friends can help make this a day to remember as there will be picnic areas, fun play activities and spaces to socialise and rest.

How to apply for settled status in the UK

Are you an EU National living in Haringey? Do you have concerns over Brexit? Have you heard about the EU Settled Status Scheme?

The Bridge Renewal Trust is working closely with Haringey Council to ensure non-British and Irish EU nationals living in the borough are getting the advice they need to get registered on the EU Settled Status Scheme by the deadline of 31 December 2020.

Residents are invited to attend an open day on Wednesday 18 September 2019 between 5-8pm at The Chestnuts Community Centre, 280 St Ann’s Road, N15 5BN.

For more information on how Brexit could affect businesses and residents in the local area, please visit our Businesses and Brexit page.

Consultation set to begin on future of Stamford Hill Primary School

Following the informal consultation that took place earlier this year, the council will now be taking a statutory consultation to gather views on the future of Stamford Hill Primary School.

A number of factors have been considered, including the impact on the quality of education delivered to pupils attending Tiverton and Stamford Hill Primary Schools.

We will be consulting on the council’s preferred option of an amalgamation with Tiverton Primary and the eventual move of Stamford Hill pupils into the Tiverton Primary School site.

Find out more about the consultation.
