In what appears to be a genuine attempt to understand the concerns of Barnet residents, the Council has appointed a research company to hold some focus groups with residents to discuss parking issues in the borough (High Street and other parking as well as residents parking).
They are specifically looking for a number of our supporters to attend a group on Monday 9 December in Whetsone from 4.30pm to 6pm. The group will comprise 8 residents so there should be plenty of opportunity to put your views across.
If you are interested in taking part, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will pass your details on to the research company (Alpha Research) who will then be in touch direct.
If you are interested in participating but can't make the session on 9 December, please also contact us as other sessions may become available.
We are still waiting for the payment of our legal costs by Barnet Council to be finalised so that we can begin the process of repaying what we can to supporters who made donations of £20 or more. There is progress on this front but realistically the issue may not be resolved until the new year because Barnet are (understandably) subjecting the legal fees we incurred to a good deal of scrutiny.
