Update on mega events in Trent Country Park

Update on mega events in Trent Country Park

Enfield Council is again increasing the impact of large music events on Trent Park this year.  CLARA [Cockfosters Local Area Residents Association] and the Friends have been lobbying against this.

Large events continue to damage our park and community:

  • LOSS OF PARK AMENITY FOR THOUSANDS OF VISITORS
  • DENIAL of access to KEY AREAS of the park during the entire school holidays
  • DAMAGING IMPACT ON PARKLAND AND ASSETS, ESPECIALLY PARK WILDLIFE
  • INTENSE MUSIC NOISE POLLUTION, LITTERING of park and wider area on event days
  • ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR (drugs, theft and more) throughout neighbourhood
  • TRAFFIC CONGESTION, CLOSED ROADS, re-routed public transport, leading to chaos.

And Enfield council makes no net revenue from these events after ALL costs are taken into account. Commercial mega events are a failed policy are not mandated and must be withdrawn.
