Who are the Friends of the Lakes Estate Conservation Area ?
Shortly after the Conservation Area was set up, encouraged by Enfield Council, the Lakes Estate Conservation Area Study Group was set up. This is a traditional title for groups such as ours. However we feel that the use of the phrase "Study Group" tended to give the wrong impression of who we are and what we do. We are not for example an academic research group!
We are a group of residents who assist Council officers in safeguarding the Estate's unique character by scrutinising planning applications affecting the Lakes Estate Consdervation Area and encouraging good conservation practice. We now therefore prefer to call ourselves the Friends of the Lakes Estate Conservation Area as a better reflection of our approach.
If you are interested in joining the Group, please see Become a Friend of the Lakes Conservation Area .
