CLEAN AND SAFE
Tottenham residents deserve to live in a clean, well maintained and safe Tottenham, a Tottenham where residents are proud to live and work. We can’t do this alone; we need residents to report crime, anti-social behaviour and fly tipping and be community champions setting an example for other residents to follow.
Traffic speeds are sometimes too fast in our residential and local shopping streets. This can stop more people walking and cycling and can increase the number and severity of accidents. Research shows that there will be fewer accidents, and they will be less severe, if traffic is moving at 20mph rather than 30mph or faster.
The speed limit in all streets in Haringey is now 20mph, except for some main roads and streets managed by Transport for London.
We recognise that 20mph speed limits are a long term plan, and that changing driver's attitudes and behaviours to drive at a lower speed will take time.

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) comes in many different forms. It includes nuisance and harassment in relation to: race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, disability, drug abuse, noise and vandalism amongst many others.
Some residents may feel uneasy in reporting incidents of anti social behaviour to the council. They often fear that things may get worse if the perpetrator finds out that they have made a report. The council's Anti Social Behaviour Action Team (ASBAT) understand these problems and all reports made to the council are treated in the strictest confidence.

Operation clean streets
Haringey Council is tackling the issues of flytipping, littering and street cleanliness with Operation Clean Streets – a set of robust new measures designed to ensure the borough’s streets are kept clean.
It includes a drive to target flytipping – cleaning them up and working to track down the people who dump them – and abolishing unsightly roadside rubbish bags with carefully-planned timed collection slots, new communal bins for some flats, and boxes to store street-sweeper waste.
There is a new street cleaning vehicle now in operation on Tottenham High Road. The vehicle is used to collect rubbish bags and also includes a pressure washer for cleaning pavements and bins.
