Special interest groups

The Enfield Society has several specialised groups handling specific areas of work. Contact details are given with each entry below, or you can use our general contact page.

Architecture and Planning Group

Monitors local planning applications, development plans and traffic schemes in a constructive attempt to promote good architecture and design.

Contact John West: architecture.planning@enfieldsociety.org.uk

Cleaner Neighbourhoods Group

Makes a difference by organising volunteers to clean up some of the locations throughout the borough where the need is greatest.

Contact Alison Yates: cleanerneighbourhoods@enfieldsociety.org.uk

Eastern Enfield & Edmonton Group

The Group has concentrated on improving the parks, recreation grounds and other open spaces in Lower and Upper Edmonton. The planting of trees in Golden Jubilee Park, Jubilee Park, Montagu Recreation Ground and, most recently, the Florence Hayes Children’s Adventure Playground has been funded by the Enfield Society. Donations have been given to the restoration funds for two listed buildings, All Saints Church and the Charity School Hall in Church Street, Edmonton, which are on English Heritage’s Buildings at Risk Register. The Heritage Trail information boards in that area are to be replaced at the expense of the Society.

Footpaths and Open Spaces Group

Organises guided walks as well as making recommendations for new paths.

Contact Stuart Mills: footpaths@enfieldsociety.org.uk

Conservation & Heritage Group

In 2020 the Council created the Environment Forum, replacing three previous groups (Conservation Advisory Group, Transport Users Group and the Green Belt Forum). The Society is concerned that this new Council group has less focus on the Conservation Areas and so the Society took the opportunity to alter some of its Groups dealing with Historic Buildings and created the Conservation and Heritage Group. The Group monitors Listed Buildings (Grade II and Local List) and other heritage assets and provide an opportunity for the Conservation Area Study Groups to meet and review matters of concern.
