The amazing Haringey Cycling Campaign have asked all political parties in Haringey if they will support their '5 asks'. They are:

1. Deliver a Liveable Neighbourhood in Crouch End that makes cycling to the town centre safe and inviting for everyone, and reduces or removes through traffic from Crouch End’s residential areas. Use learning from this first project to work with communities to bring forward proposals for other Liveable Neighbourhoods in the borough.

2. Work with Transport for London to improve Cycle Superhighway 1 and extend Enfield’s Green Lanes and A1010 cycle tracks into Haringey. Make these routes deliver truly safe and inviting conditions suitable for all-ages, all-abilities cycling.

3. Bring forward plans for at least one high quality East/West cycle route.

4. Within 6 months of the election, launch Haringey’s first ‘School Street’ – where nearby roads are closed to motor traffic at school opening and closing times. Within 4 years enable school streets for each school that wants one.

5. Reduce the speed and volume of through traffic in residential areas, to incentivise walking and cycling. Work with communities to develop pragmatic steps to reduce or remove through traffic, applying best practice from successful projects in Haringey and other boroughs.

Our response is as follows - Yes!

Haringey Labour are happy to support the Haringey Cycling Campaign's '5 Asks' - they are consistent with the Transport Strategy our current Haringey Labour council recently published

The Haringey Cycling Campaign responded in detail to the consultation on the draft strategy and we took many of their points on board. We thank them for their time and passion they have shown. 

In relation to the specific five pledges:

Pledge 1: Haringey Council led by Labour have got the funding for the Liveable Neighbourhood initiative in Crouch End.

Pledges 2 and 3: on cycle routes depend on external funding but we are keen to encourage cycling. A Walking and Cycling Action Plan will be issued later in this year for consultation.

On pledge 4: about School Streets, Haringey Labour Councillors have visited a Camden school to view one in action and we have identified a Haringey primary school where we want to close the road outside the entrance for 45 mins in the morning and 45 mins at close of school. This will be subject to consultation with local residents.

Pledge 5: about reducing the speed and volume of traffic in residential streets is consistent with Haringey Council's transport strategy, though challenging to achieve but it's something Haringey Labour, if elected, will strive to accomplish.
