"TRADERS are outraged after the Leader of the Council said there was nothing he could do about parking issues when confronted by business owners at a North Finchley forum last night.
Councillor Richard Cornelius and highways manager Neil Richards faced an onslaught of criticisms to recent parking changes from traders who claim business has rapidly declined since the change to pay-by-phone was introduced.
Tempers flared when Cllr Cornelius explained: “I’m listening, but I haven’t got any intention to do anything else other than that.”“I’ve heard you and it’s obviously affected me. I don’t know what I can do. "
Mrs Angry has a suggestion for you, Councillor Cornelius.
Try and remember that you are the leader of Barnet Council. You don't know what to do?
Sack Brian Coleman as Cabinet member for the environment.
Reverse the shambolic parking scheme which has had an immediate and catastrophic effect on the shopping centres of our borough.
And then resign.
