Woodcroft Wildspace Planning Application

on Thursday, 29 January 2015. Posted in N21 Community




Dear N21 Resident


Some 2 years ago Woodcroft directors worked closely with Enfield Council to put together a planning application to change the use of the land from sports ground to wildspace. That Planning Application was finally submitted to the Planning dept in mid December 2014 and neighbours around the site notified by LBE with a published closing date of 1st January 2015.


We now understand there is further opportunity for public comment on the plans, for which the links to the application are shown below, with an extension to February 5th 2015. Naturally we wish to see the plans approved for the retained land, as it is referred, to retain the land as wildspace managed by Woodcroft Wildspace as an educational wildspace for the benefit of the whole of Enfield. Woodcroft Wildspace is an award winning community resouce and is widely used by schools and we have many bookings already for 2015.


As you know, we have been very successful in doing so to date with many schools visits planned in 2015 to benefit from this Gold Award winning facility. We would be grateful for your support by writing to Eloise Kiernan, the case Officer as set out below, expressing your support for the application.


The planning documents previously displayed in public consultation on 4th December 2012 are still available on  Should you have any concerns about the proposals that you wish to express directly to Woodcroft Wildspace please e-mail us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


The planning applications are scheduled to go before the Enfield Council Planning Committee on Tuesday 24th February or Thursday 12th March (venue Conference Room, Civic Centre, Enfield). It should still be possible to sumbit comments up to this meeting.


Local residents around the Woodcroft site will be aware of the submission of planning applications for a residential development of five detached houses on the southern part of the site (by Wrenn Homes), with a separate but linked application on the rest of the site for nature conservation and related proposals, including provision of a small car park. The application for the 'retained land' is submitted jointly by LB Enfield Parks Department and Woodcroft Wildspace. For anyone still wishing to comment on either application (support or objection), please e-mail the relevant case officer direct and request advice on the date when the opportunity to comment will be closed.


In the case of the 'retained land' application (reference 14/04644/RE4), the case officer is Eloise Kiernan ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Tel 020 9379 2531)

In the case of the Wrenn Homes housing application (reference 14/04651/FUL), the case officer is Maria Demetri (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Tel 020 8379 2746)


Here are links to the planning applications:

(1) Nature Conservation etc proposals on retained land - reference 14/04644/RE4 26 submitted supporting items / documents. View here

(2) Residential development (5 detached houses) (Wrenn Homes) - reference 14/04651/FUL 32 submitted supporting items / documents. View here


Thank-you, we look forward to your support in retaining this refreshing green space for everyone's benefit.
