Protect Enfield's Heritage

Published Friday, 19 June 2015

Residents are being asked to volunteer for a project aiming to protect the places, buildings, sites and landscapes that characterise our great borough.

Enfield Council is working with the Enfield Society to identify things which should be included on an updated Local List of Heritage Assets.

A heritage asset may be a building, monument, site, place or landscape which reflects the character of an area and which should be protected wherever possible when planning decisions are made. 

To put the list together the Council is looking for volunteers to join our team and help research and identify new heritage items, people who are interested can register for a place at one of the free workshops in July and September.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: “We want to protect the places in Enfield which play a vital role in helping to conserve and enhance the local character of our borough.

“Local heritage listings give communities the opportinuty to have their views on local heritage heard, recognises the importance we place on the historic environment and acknowledges that we should protect  community-based values that contribute to our sense of place.”
