Hampstead Heath Education Charging Report

Report of the Superintendent of Hampstead Heath.



The Committee received a report of the Superintendent of Hampstead Heath regarding the adoption of a ‘per session’ charging structure for the Hampstead Heath Schools Programme, which was approved by the Hampstead Heath, Highgate Wood and Queen’s Park Committee in September 2014.


In response to question from Jeremey Wright, the Leisure and Events Manager advised that they were confident the new structure would be effective. Ninety-seven percent of users of the Hampstead Heath Schools Programme responded positively when asked in daily surveys if the sessions represented good value for money.


In response to a question from Michael Hammerson, the Leisure and Events Manager advised that the London Metropolitan University had carried out some research relating to the Ladies’ Bathing Pond and there would be scope for further University-led research in the future.


RESOLVED – That the adoption of the new charging structure be noted.
