1. Report on meeting with LBH on 21/1/13, Tottenham Hale letter from TfL, HGV pledge
AC and MP had not heard from Toni Mallett re meeting with Nilgun Canver about HGV pledge and MP has suggested LBH fleet manager, who was due to attend meeting with TfL be asked to attend. LBH is rated 2 out of 5 by LCC. Post meeting note, following email from AC, MP attended a meeting with Cllrs Canver and Mallett and LBH officers and the outcome has been very positive. MP confirmed path from St Michael’s Terrace to Bounds Green Rd is being widened and resurfaced. MP has received positive letter from TfL on Tottenham Hale, confirming CS1 alignment has been allowed for.
2. Haringey Loop
MP and AC attended a CRIM ride with LBH officers, consultants and Cllr Toni Mallett to inspect. MP tabled the draft route. MP would share with consultants the comments from the local group meeting supporting the Western Road alignment.
3. Hornsey Heart
No developments to report. Post meeting note, it is understood from Tony Kennedy at LBH some funding will be used for the informal pedestrian/cycle crossing at the Greenway 4 crossing of Park Rd. Safety improvements at the Hornsey High St/ Hornsey Lane turning will be funded by section 106 money from the Hornsey depot development. This work will follow work on the railway bridge.
4. Cycle Storage
MP will talk to other groups when current Ealing/Haringey local discussions on guidance become public.
5. Winter Social
Timing was confirmed. GNRT can serve pancakes.
6. LBH Policy on pothole accident claims
MP said it appeared to be current policy to send out standard letters disclaiming responsibility.
7. Spring/Summer rides
It was agreed HCC should organise rides, as previously family rides were very popular.
8. AOB
AG said HCC has been asked to fill in form on group resources. AG will forward. MP reported on the recent Transport Forum, including “Go Dutch” presentation by Gerhard Weiss from LCC, which was well received and TfL pedestrian crossing timings at Bounds Green Rd, presented by TfL as a case study. It was hoped the 72 second max wait time at the Toucan crossing can be reduced.
