Haringey Council has made adjustments to parking enforcement to support essential NHS and police staff, as well as residents that have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
We have suspended enforcement in our resident, business and shared use and permit parking bays, in addition to our on-street Pay by Phone areas. Enforcement has also been suspended within council-run car parks.
To ensure that we keep road users, vulnerable residents and those providing essential services safe, parking is prohibited on yellow lines, footways, disabled bays, loading bays and doctors’ bays. We will also remove/relocate any vehicle causing an obstruction by parking in any of those locations. If you suspect that your vehicle has been relocated, you can contact the London-wide TRACE service by:
- Tracing your vehicle online (external link)
- Texting "TRACE" followed by your Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) to 66663 - you may be charged for this service
- Calling the TRACE Customer Services Helpdesk on 0300 077 0100
If a vehicle is found parked in a suspended bay, we may have to relocate your vehicle to provide a utility company safe access to install connections to a property, or to enable contractors to carry out essential works on the public highway. In this instance, you must contact TRACE.
These measures are intended to provide stress-free access to parking, particularly for key workers who are serving our communities during this challenging time.
We will need to monitor those arrangements daily to ensure that demand does not exceed capacity in those bays, and we acknowledge that changes may need to be made at short notice and this may include resuming normal enforcement.
Wash your hands of coronavirus scams and help the most vulnerable during these difficult times.
Members of the community throughout Haringey are being asked to look out for signs of their neighbours being targeted by doorstep criminals.
There are genuine groups of volunteers providing help for those in self-isolation or who need essential supplies such as food or medicine.
However, there are reports of criminals preying on residents – often older people or those living with long-term health conditions.
The criminals claim to represent charities and they appear legitimate before taking the victim’s money.
Consumers should remain vigilant and always ask for ID from anyone claiming to be part of a charity.
For advice on scams please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Hotline on 0808 223 11 33.
As a result of the ongoing CV19 crisis and the need to ensure the safety of Young People the council has decided to temporarily close Bruce Grove Youth Space.
This measure will remain in place until it is safe for the Centre to re-open

We know that large groups of people are still congregating in our parks and open spaces and not adhering to the Government rules around social distancing by staying 2m apart (external link).
This is irresponsible and unacceptable behaviour that is risking the lives of vulnerable people, as well as those with underlying health conditions, in Haringey.
It’s very important that we all play our part in the national response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and ensure our National Health Service (NHS) isn’t overburdened at this critical time.
People may die because some of our park users and residents didn’t take a few steps back and think about the stark consequences of their selfish, thoughtless actions.
If you need to go outside, please ensure it’s for one of the four essential purposes (external link) and you remain in a group of not more than two people at all times. Otherwise, stay at home, save lives and support the NHS.
You can stay in touch with your friends and family by phone or on social media platforms. Visit the GOV.UK website for tips on how to look after your wellbeing while staying at home (external link).
