Do you have any plans to install drinking fountains in Haringey? Residents have asked if you would consider installing one in Highgate.

Yes, we have plans to install fountains in Haringey.

We received applications for fountains at five locations in Haringey. One of these was subsequently withdrawn by the applicant and the remaining four locations are currently being reviewed by Haringey Council and await their confirmation of planning permission. None of the locations being considered are in Highgate.

We now have all the sites we need to install fountains in our current programme with Thames Water and are not accepting additional applications at this stage. I would encourage residents to raise the possibility of having a fountain installed in Highgate directly with the Council.
