The Work of the Heath Committee

The greatest danger facing Hampstead Heath comes not from the fact that it is loved too little – but from the fact that it is loved too much. The pressures faced by the Heath today are unprecedented.

The Heath Sub-committee advises on everything that affects the Heath including:

  • Protecting the Heath Landscape
  • Heath Fringes
  • Cycling
  • Swimming
  • Dog Walking
  • Sports on the Heath
  • Wildlife and Tree Conservation
  • Views
  • Concerts
  • Footpath Erosion
  • Car Parking
  • Benches
  • Invasive Species
  • Sexual Activities
  • Long-term Planning
