Hainault Forest Country Park
Hainault Forest Country Park is one of our Green Flag Award open spaces. It is a large park with woodlands and a variety of activities to take part in.
In January 2017, the Forest was awarded a round one pass to move us onto a detailed design phase (round two) of the project, unlocking £300,000 to commission a design team and pull together a range of consultants to produce the required documents, reports and surveys the HLF require. At the end of 2018, all of this will be submitted with our round two application form, for delivery funding of £4.5m from the Heritage Lottery Fund, with a further investment of £1.5m by the council to go towards the overall improvement of the much-loved woodland. This process however is still competitive, so do watch this space for news on our success in 2019.
