We’ve campaigned for extra parking and loading time in Upper Street – and they’ve just gone live!

After requests from businesses, we lobbied TfL to support our local economy by allowing more time for deliveries, and more opportunities for shoppers and diners to park.

The new rules we’ve achieved for Upper Street are

  • Three-hour extension to all bays heading north – 7am-4pm
  • Three-hour extension to all bays heading south – 10am-7pm.

And the best thing is that we’ve made sure this affects all bays on Upper Street, from Islington Green to Canonbury Lane – which will benefit customers and suppliers of businesses wanting to join our BID if we get re-elected in October.

We’re delighted we have achieved this because it is in business’ best interests and we know it is so important to you.

Last summer we co-ordinated the successful campaign opposing Islington Council’s proposed changes to parking which would have adversely affected everyone at the Angel. Everybody got behind the campaign – our businesses, market traders, residents, churches, charities, and bars and pubs.
