Back to Hands Off Our Forests

Cat Hill Woods, Cockfosters, London Protest


Ancient woodland with 400-year-old oak trees and associated wildlife including European Protected species, bats and newts will be wiped out by the demolition of Middlesex University's Cat Hill campus, Cockfosters North London, in order to build 232 residential properties. The move by L&Q property developers and Enfield Council violates a long standing covenant that the land be used for educational purposes in perpetuity. The buildings have stood empty for some time, and have suffered some vandalism, but worse is the planned destruction of five acres of ponds and woodlands, home to hundreds of ancient trees and associated ecosystems.
