Empty shops on high road

If anyone wanted to see the impact of the new parking policies on our high streets, here is a picture of my colleague Colin Rogers on East Finchley High Road, in front of a section of three shops which have closed.

There are about six in East Finchley, and I understand 14 in North Finchley. During a time of recession, we need to support local businesses. It is noticeable that the High Road is empty at midday on weekdays, which should be a busy time with shoppers.
