Lordship Rec

Lordship Rec

The Lordship Rec Users Forum was set up in 2002 and is a group which aims to bring together all local groups, agencies and institutions who have an interest in Lordship Rec. This includes representatives of relevant Haringey Council departments, The Friends of Lordship Rec, The Broadwater Centre, local Residents Associations and other voluntary ecological groups like BTCV and the Friends of Graham Lee and a mother and toddler group who operate in the Rec.

The Forum meets regularly at the Broadwater Centre to discuss any plans or proposals that come up regarding the Rec so that there can be a coordinated approach to any future development. The aim is to promote communication and coordination and to become a powerful voice for Rec Users.

Since the Forum has been in existence we have successfully bid for funding for three new play facilities and have worked tirelessly towards a future bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for major improvements, including restoring the River Moselle. (See The Future – Bids) together we have organised several public consultations and have produced a draft master plan for the park which is being worked on and improved together with a management and maintenance plan for the Rec (See The Future – Masterplan)
