The public minutes of the Hampstead Heath, Highgate Wood and Queen’s Park Committee (HHHWQPC) meeting held on 13 March 2019 were received.
In response to a query from a Member (Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents' Association) regarding Brexit, the Director of Open Spaces confirmed that the Corporation was responsible for the supervision of container ports and Brexit potentially brought concerns regarding plant material and animals.
