Plans for making Panshanger Park a sustainable country park and nature reserve for the future are taking shape, the park’s management team has revealed.

Panshanger Park will become a wilder place with a new community engagement and volunteering programme thanks to a new partnership between Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and Tarmac.
Tarmac is working on a planning application for permission to build an additional car park for Panshanger Park visitors. The proposed new space will be able to facilitate three times the capacity of the current Thieves Lane parking area.
