Harringey parking services are a joke. I have on 6 different occasions informed them of my new address. I have done this by email twice and over the phone 4 times. However they still send the old outstanding ticket to my old address. It has just gone up to £120. On each contact with them I have asked to be sent a bill to my new address so that I can pay the ticket, this has never been the case. Every now and then I go and visit my old address which I have moved from over a year now to find the same PCN Notice. Are these people stupid or deaf.

Hi Su is this you
IT'S Alex from long ago more strenth to finsbury judo club
this is the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssstttttt i love it
Finsbury Judo Club is 25 years old This year.
In the Old London Borough of Finsbury. Not Finsbury Park. As the name would suggest. :o)
The heading for this page doesn't help BUT TOURISTS DO NOTE that Finsbury Park and Finsbury are two very different areas of London
.... I say, steady on Fenella 'old girl' - what, what....
Finsbury Park isn't all that bad...
Does anyone know of any aerobics/or similar fitness classes that are in Finsbury Park/Stroud Green area that are cheap?.
I know people who have encountered similar problems when contacting haringey parking services after being issued with unfair parking tickets.
Please contact me as I believe we can do something positive and constuctive about these tickets.

It seems that no-one here understands where Finsbury is, hence every post is about Finsbury Park. I vote to remove the name Finsbury (which is actually much nicer than Finsbury Park) and merge it into something else, like Clerkenwell.
Not to be confused with Finsbury, which is this page.
Finsbury PArk is a large area and the best part is around stroud green. a mixed ethnic cultural vibe close to Crouch End and Green LAnes and close to Turnpike LAne.
If you like vibrant ethnic areas this is for you. If you don't like ethnic areas give it a wideberth, don'tmove here and complain.
chilled out area, but taxi's ain't that expensive. close to the cinema, and loadz of buses to everywhere. I'm on Tollington, and I find its a great place to live, quiet when you need it to be but close enough to fun
...my friends have just moved there. It's a bit of a long walk from major bus routes would be my only criticism, but as an area it seems quite safe and reasonably quiet.
I used to live in the Zone B area off Green Lanes and have recently move locally to the Zone A area, which I understand is more draconian. In all my dealings with Haringey Parking Services, I have encountered nothing but delays, no response or a simplistic standard response which indicates a clear inability to address concerns or issues. Being trigger happy on issuing tickets or fines, I've had to bear a few of these because there is a point where you save your sanity against a brick wall.
Other residents have expressed the same exasperation and sense of disempowerment. Jokingly, we said we ought to collate views and incidents, as perhaps there are in fact policy/service issues N4 residents would like to escalate in a constructive manner to Haringey Council to address and require Haringey Parking Services to improve upon.
Any N4 Residents to Strike Back?
It really is a great pub. My aunt/uncle own it so don't wreck it. I dare you to wear a Cork/Mayo GAA jersey there. You'll find out soon enough...
