The minutes of the Hampstead Heath, Highgate Wood and Queen’s Park
Committee (HHHWQPC) meeting held on 5 September 2018 were received.
A Member (London Wildlife Trust) queried what the cost implications were regarding OPM and the different approaches used to manage it. He also felt that this should be public information as this information would particularly help land owners. The Chairman explained that the costs for OPM were currently being covered by the Director’s operational budget. The Superintendent stated that he was happy to share any information and progress regarding OPM advising that natural options were being researched such as a parasitic fly that stops the breeding stage of the moths.
In response to a request from a Member, the Town Clerk agreed to bring the personalised gavel presented to the HHHWQPC by past Chairman Mr Welbank
at their last meeting to the next HHCC meeting so Members could see it.
