Haringey Lib Dems are organising a cross-party rally for a People's Vote on the 11th October at 18:30. The rally will take place outside Haringey Civic Centre just an hour before an Extraordinary Full Council meeting takes place.

Haringey Liberal Democrats are calling for the Council to lead by example, and stop encouraging the use of disposable plastic items.

Haringey Council has recently consulted on plans for major changes to Wightman Road. The proposals included:
- pavement parking being replaced with on-street parking
- the creation of so called ‘informal’ crossings for pedestrians

However, local Lib Dems are warning that more drastic changes are required before Wightman Road is pedestrian and bike friendly.
Haringey Liberal Democrats are celebrating after getting cross-party support for a motion to ensure that all Haringey Council’s workers will be paid the London Living Wage. The motion was unanimously adopted by a meeting of Haringey’s Full Council on the evening of Monday 16th July.
