The campaigning group Enfield RoadWatch has issued a newsletter with updated information about their campaign to prevent construction on Green Belt land adjacent to Enfield Road, between Oakwood and Enfield Town (see this earlier report).

Urgent Call to Action!

  • Do you want developers to build homes on Green Belt land? 
  • Do we need yet another school in this area?
  • Do you think the local roads can take the additional capacity?
  • Should we forget about places for wildlife and nature to thrive?

If your answers are NO to any of these questions, then you are AGAINST the proposed development by Fairview New Homes. 


Please add your voice to the coalition of local residents, organisations and public officials who are working to prevent this development. 

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Sign the petition at [type in Protect Enfield]. 
  2. Visit our website
  3. Like us on Facebook
  4. If you can deliver leaflets for us, lend your time, expertise or wish to make a contribution to support this cause, please e-mail us at

This is what we know:

Fairview New Homes and London Diocesan Board for Schools hope to build an 8-form entry secondary school with a 4-form entry sixth-form college [approx. 1500 pupils] and 300 homes on the grazing field that lies to the South of Enfield Road towards Oakwood tube station [post code EN2 7HX]. 

This is GREEN BELT and Enfield Council publicly confirmed its status as an Area of Special Character just last November.

Wren Academy and the London Diocesan Board for Schools have been soliciting support for the secondary school at local Church of England  primary schools.  The Green Belt is not always mentioned and the site is described as ‘accessible!’

Wren Academy has indicated that it is likely to submit an application to the Department for Education for a new free school with the Green Belt field as its first choice of location. Then a planning application is expected to be submitted by Fairview Homes to the Council early next year.

Enfield RoadWatch is working in coalition with Highlands Ward Councillors Glynis Vince and Lee David-Sanders, The Enfield Society (TES), The Federation of Enfield Residents’ & Allied Associations [FERAA], the Western Enfield Residents’ Association (WERA), The Campaign for Rural England (CPRE), The London Green Belt Council, The Green Party, Friends of Trent Country Park, Trent Park Conservation Committee and YOU.
