Highgate Cemetery is a complex site which serves many and sometimes conflicting audiences.
We believe the cemetery needs an assured masterplan defining a shared vision of realistic and long-term delivery. Such an assured vision can reverse the current slow erosion of landscape character and quality, as well as, heritage, ecological and communal significance.
Our approach will recognise and strengthen the respective characters of Highgate Cemetery. Our vision would be evolution not revolution, and include a long-term tree and woodland management plan.
