In an effort to stop environmental and architectural degradation, we are making a detailed survey and permanent photographic record of the Mill Hill Park area: streets, houses, street furniture, trees and open spaces.
We also aim to screen planning and licensing applications so that we can respond to Ealing Borough Council about inappropriate proposals early on.
We have established annual awards for the most attractively presented and conserved properties in Mill Hill Park.
We are in close touch with Acton Gardens, the joint venture appointed to lead the regeneration of the South Acton Estate to the east of the Conservation Area, to keep up to date with developments and comment on proposals. Representatives of Acton Gardens spoke at our 2011 AGM.
We are interested in the history of the Mill Hill Park Estate and its former residents. We have commisssioned and erected two plaques. One commemorates the younger William Willett who promoted the Daylight Savings Act which created British Summer Time; the other commemorates Richard White, founder of the Mill Hill Park Estate and founder member of the Law Society.

The social round
We are very active socially and hold regular events, many of which are hosted by members in their homes or gardens. These range from monthly drinks parties to concerts and various celebrations. See Events. To learn more, please contact our Social Secretary, Sandy Nicol at email@example.com
AGM and Committee
The minutes of the AGM held on 19 July 2012 are available here.
The members of the Committee are:

Despite Council cutbacks, the project was ‘fast-tracked’ after the argument was put to LBE that neglected Council property in the heart of Mill Hill Park made a mockery of the Council’s and residents’ own strenuous efforts to uphold high standards of conservation and restoration in a Conservation Area.
If you are aware of sub-standard Council property in Mill Hill Park let the Committee know (using the Contact us form) and we’ll try to take it up.
