Highgate Wood Consultative Group

Purpose of committee

The City of London protects and manages, by charitable trust, almost 11,000 acres of open spaces within and around the capital for the benefit of local communities and visitors. Highgate Wood is 69 acres of ancient woodland. It is a haven for wildlife and provides numerous easily accessible and scenic woodland trails. The Sports Ground, located within the Wood, provides a picturesque and rural backdrop, as well as top quality lawn. There is a children’s playground, a renowned café, an information point with booklets, newsletters and trail guides and well maintained toilet facilities. The Highgate Wood Joint Consultative Committee provides a forum for local residents and users of the Wood to comment upon the management of the Wood.
