|24 hour parking restrictions outside Tally Ho Discount|
Tescos are moving to North Finchley in the site of the former Tally Ho discount stores, opposite the rather marvellous Cafe Buzz. The Barnet Eye has been notified that Barnet Council have applied a 24 hour suspension of parking during the period of work. This is estimated to be for a period of 6-8 weeks.
This means that if you park in this spot at any time, you are liable to get a parking ticket. Barnet Council have recently stepped up 24 hour parking enforcement. Barnet Council uses parking enforcement as a handy revenue stream and our local wardens are rather zealous in application of the rules. Why this particular parking suspension should apply at 3am in the morning is beyond me, other than to swell council coffers, but that I guess is the modern world. So please, unless yopu enjoy subsididing buffet lunches for councillors, avoid parking in this spot.
