Hampstead Heath Extension Consultation

Report of the Superintendent of Hampstead Heath.



Members received a report of the Director of Open Spaces providing an update and the outcome of an engagement and consultation process regarding the use of the Hampstead Heath Extension Annex Room that is attached to the public toilet building.


A Member (Hampstead Rugby Club) noted that there was a lack of facilities on the extension and welcomed a kiosk over a café. In response to whether the Rugby Club would be able to use the facility to prepare tea and coffee, the Superintendent confirmed that it would be written into the specs to allow provision for the Cricket and Rugby Clubs to use for refreshments. The Superintendent also agreed to explore possible menu options for the Clubs.    


A Member (Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents' Association) was concerned that a café would create an environmental impact and would only support a flagship environmentally friendly kiosk facility with non-permanent furniture that could be put away. With regards to the annex room, the Member suggested an interpretation centre.   


RESOLVED – That Members:-


·         Provide feedback on the report findings (appendix 2);


·         Provide feedback on the Superintendent’s recommendation to proceed with a tender for the lease of the Annex Room as a refreshment room, as set out in para 20.
