Enfield Council receives award for work on Forty Hall
Enfield Council has received an award in recognition of the work it has carried out to maintain and improve Forty Hall Park.
The council has been given the Green Heritage Accreditation from the Green Flag Awards for the work it is doing to understand and share the heritage value of the Forty Hill site and to conserve the park.
To achieve the accreditation the council had to demonstrate it is able to maintain a good quality historic green space, understand the historic development of the site, develop and adopt a conservation plan and share the site's heritage with residents.
Enfield Council's cabinet member for environment, Councillor Chris Bond, said: "I'm delighted we have scooped this prestigious award, it underlines the immense amount of hard work the council and friends of the park groups do to make our beautiful parks accessible and enjoyable to residents and ensure we share and improve on their character and history.
"Enfield is one of the greenest borough's in London and we're keen to encourage as many people as possible to get into our wonderful open spaces.
“This accreditation builds on the eight Green Flag awards we received for parks last year and demonstrates our parks team is amongst the best around at the moment."
