5. Superintendent’s Update
In response to a comment by Michael Hammerson the Conservation and Trees Manager agreed to consider whether the replacement would be a lime or oak tree.
The Chairman and Superintendent of Hampstead Heath updated members on the following:
Councillor Melvin Cohen had agreed to be Park Champion for areas of the Heath within the London Borough of Barnet and Councillor Sally Gimson had agreed to be Park Champion for areas within the London Borough of Camden.
In response to a member’s question, the Superintendent advised that the Park Champions would act as a contact regarding local matters concerning or within their borough. The appointment of local Park Champions to the City of London Corporation’s open spaces was important to the City Corporation as many sites are located within other boroughs.
No planning notifications had been received regarding Ivy House, which overlooked Golders Hill Park. The Superintendent would contact the London Borough of Barnet regarding this matter.
