The people of Crouch End deserve a strong voice at the decision-making table on Haringey Council.
Jason, Natan and Lourdes have been listening closely to residents to understand the issues that people in Crouch End care about. As a team Labour wants to work with people in Crouch End to build an even stronger community.
One of the things that has come up on the doorstep is residents wanting more money invested in roads and pavements. We know that improving the quality of our streets through resurfacing, pavement and safety improvements and pothole repairs improves the quality of life for all residents– particularly children, disabled and older people.
We also know from talking to residents in Crouch End how important cycling is. That’s why we’re proud to support the Space for Cycling campaign. We’re also proud that the Haringey Labour manifesto commits to using part of the £25 million we’ve pledged to improve roads in the borough to invest in cycle and pedestrian routes to make Haringey more accessible and safer for those who travel by foot or bike. Our aim is to be the safest borough for cyclists and pedestrians.
Jason, Natan and Lourdes have been out talking to residents for over a year now. One thing that has come up is that family budgets are being squeezed. The monthly pay packet isn’t going as far as it once did. That’s why as one of our key manifesto pledges in Crouch End and Haringey, Labour is freezing council tax for another four years.
There are five days to go until the local elections. We’ll be unveiling more about our positive vision for Crouch End and Haringey in the coming days. So stay tuned and look out for Jason, Natan and Lourdes campaigning in Crouch End this weekend.
