Talk by Graham Campbell (London Borough of Enfield). The Enfield Chase Restoration Project has an overall vision to create a long-term, multi-beneficial, publicly accessible woodland within the rural area of Enfield in order to benefit the local community and improve the environment of Enfield.
Led by Enfield Council the woodland design process has considered ecology, local history, landscape, drainage and silviculture. It will include the improvement of up to 3km of existing footpath along the London Loop. The aim is to plant approximately 100,000 trees across 60 hectares over the next 2 winters, principally through volunteer and community planting events. It will be concentrated in the Salmons Brook and Turkey Brook upper valleys across Council owned land. The project is being supported by local charity Thames21 and is being supported by the Forestry Commission and the Mayor of London (GLA).
Zoom meeting details will be made available to members via our monthly e-mail news updates.
