Higher Level Stewardship grants have been given to Enfield Council to clear scrub, plant hedges and allow grass and flowers to grow in six public parks.

Grovelands, Hilly Fields, Whitewebbs, Forty Hall, Trent and Oakwood parks will all have special work undertaken to deliver more wildlife-friendly land.

Currently 70 hectares of scrub have been removed and hedges installed in some areas to encourage birds breeding.

Councillor Chris Bond, who is responsible for environment policy, said: "Enfield Council is doing all it can to protect the environment that we live in, and making our parks and green spaces havens for wildlife and flowers. This recent work, in six of our parks, is starting to reap real rewards."
