Open Spaces Department Events Policy

Report of the Superintendent of Hampstead Heath.



Members noted a report of the Superintendent of Hampstead Heath regarding the Open Spaces Department Events Policy.


Members were advised that the HHCC had provided feedback on Part 2 of the policy and the Open Spaces Committee had made minor changes to provide clarity to Part 1. Part 2 of the policy will be updated in-line with feedback received from the HHCC and the Events Advisory Group. An updated version of Part 2 will be presented to the HHCC in July 2018, before being presented to this Committee in September 2018 for approval.


In response to a query regarding Section 7, Clause 4(a) (iii) of the City of London Corporation (Open Spaces) Act 2018 and the policy concerning events on unbuilt land, the Superintendent advised Members that infrastructure associated with events such as the Affordable Art Fair are temporary and located on areas classified as built-on, which includes the Fairground at East Heath.
