Information Giving and Consultation - 26 November 2013 - 17 February 2014
Hampstead Heath is fortunate in having about 30 beautiful and much-loved ponds. View an aerial map of the ponds. (632kb) Although they look natural, most are formed by dams which are up to 300 years old.
The City of London is responsible for ensuring that the pond dams on Hampstead Heath are safe. Works are needed to prevent the dams from failing in extreme rainfall and major storms. We aim to limit the works while making the dams safe and minimising the impact on the natural environment of the Heath.
The City is giving information and consulting on the work between 26 November 2013 and 17 February 2014. This is your chance to find out more about why the work has to be done and to give us your views.
