Your weekly update of Haringey news and events.




Help us catch disgraceful dumpers

CCTV footage of two shameless fly-tippers who emptied their wheelie bins into a neighbouring garden has been released in a bid to track down the brazen duo.

The film, captured outside Park View Road Recycling Centre, shows the women unload the trash before walking off. Council enforcement officers need your help in finding them.

The appeal comes as two men (pictured), waved at a camera filming them dumping the contents of their van in a separate incident were left red-faced after being fined in court.

Watch the footage and find out more about tackling fly-tipping.

Hornsey Town Hall showcase

A public exhibition to give local residents the chance to find out more about the future of one of Crouch End’s best-loved buildings will open later this month.

An event at Hornsey Town Hall at 6.30pm on Monday 16 March, will see council officers, the Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust and property consultants on hand to answer questions.

Hornsey Library will host an exhibition charting the project so far and the options for the future until Monday 23 March.

Dramatic drop in teenage pregnancy

A dedicated plan to tackle Haringey’s high rates of teenage pregnancy has proved a success after new figures showed a 50 per cent drop since 2009.

The borough’s conception rates are now comfortably below the London and England average thanks to close work between the council, young people and wider community.

The figures correlate with record success in Haringey’s schools, with the second highest improvement in GCSE results of anywhere in the country in the last five years.

Green grants for landlords

Landlords facing a ban in letting out Haringey’s draughtiest homes are being offered up to £6,000 to make energy improvements in a pioneering project.

The Smart Homes grants make it affordable and simple for homeowners to install the new insulation, windows and boilers that could help cut their tenants’ energy bills in half.

New legislation means landlords will have to get their properties up to at least energy band E to stop renters forking out for inefficient heating and power.

Find out how you can apply for a grant.

Pedestrian priority for complex crossing

A tricky Muswell Hill junction is set to be much safer after proposals to install new pedestrian crossings were given the green light.

Haringey Council asked Transport for London to put in the crossings at the junction of Alexandra Park Road and Colney Hatch Lane after local campaigners expressed concerns.

Detailed plans will now be drawn up to help put pedestrians first at the junction, with residents getting the chance to have their say.
