We are a group of residents who assist Council officers in safeguarding the Estate's unique character as described in the Conservation Area Appraisal.

One of the roles of the group is to comment on planning applications in the area. Another role is in sharing suggestions on how residents can modernise their homes whilst also keeping the character of the area.

The Friends are also represented on the Enfield-wide Conservation Advisory Group giving us a voice in wider conservation and heritage issues.

We are looking for new Friends to sign up. There is no formal organisation so, depending on your time, interest and expertise you can express your general support through to advising on design and planning issues. We are also looking for one Friend to help as the coordinator.

If you are interested in being a Friend, please contact .
