Friends of Harringay Passage

FoHP aim to create a well-maintained and safe Harringay Passage for local people to use and enjoy. We'd like to traffic calm and pocket park the passage junctions combined with a strategy of planting, lighting and public art to unify the passage from start to finish.

Meets the third Wednesday every month, 7pm, at the Falkland Centre, Frobisher Rd, N8 0QS [http://goo.gl/maps/ov3zn]

At the LCSP meeting on Thurs there was a traffic sub committee formed, they are looking for two representatives from each of the Ladder Rd's to get involved, anyone interested?
twenty roads were mentioned off the top, but I think there are more like 32 roads....

Following the Friends' meeting, here is a Railing update:

Here is the response from Haringey Council on 13th February from Tony Kennedy about the railings following a meeting Cllr Gina Adamou. If you have comments etc, please contact the Ward Councillors direct. I have no further information.

Dear Harringay Councillors,


As you will be aware, a meeting was arranged for this morning to discuss why the pedestrian barriers at the entrances to Harringay Passage were removed without consultation or notification. The meeting was attended by Cllr Adamou.


At the meeting officers acknowledged their error and agreed the following:


  1. Temporary pedestrian guard rails have been installed at the Falkland Road junction to ensure pedestrian safety is maintained. The type of guard rails used was available immediately from our contractors depot.  
  2. A site meeting will be organised with the ward councillors to visit each junction along the passage. The purpose of the meeting will be to consider if guard rails should be reinstated or if alternative safety measures should be considered.
  3. Consultation will take place with the local schools and resident groups regarding the need for guard rails along all the junctions.    
  4. Any guard rail reinstatement will be delivered in March once agreement is reached.

There was something of a tussle between locals who wanted the Harringay spelling and Hornsey Urban District Council who favoured Haringey. Plus ca change! In the face of protest by the Harringay Ratepayers Association, the Council relented. This probably explains the schizophrenic signage.

As far as I can remember it had no name.  Back in the 1950s, we called it 'the alleys'.

You might want to spell Passage correctly in the title Hugh :-)
