Improving Our Area Since 1948
The Muswell Hill and Fortis Green Association was formed in 1948 as a non-political amenity society.
We concern ourselves with everything contributing to the environment of and quality of life in Muswell Hill, Fortis Green and Alexandra wards, including roads, buildings and open spaces.
Our membership is over 700 strong. In addition to individual household memberships, we also have corporate memberships. Some of our Corporate Members include:
- Ethical Edibles

The Association represents local views on such matters as planning applications, traffic and transport. It provides a voice for local opinion on many areas of wider interest and is represented on the committees of several amenity and public bodies, including the Alexandra Palace Statutory Advisory Committee and the local Conservation Area Advisory Committees. Our views are sought by the officers and councillors of the local borough, Haringey. We also maintain contacts with other appropriate organisations including the local police.
There are regular open meetings for members and non-members with authoritative speakers on local issues and interesting subjects relating to our area.
The Association’s informative and highly regarded eight page Newsletter is distributed six times a year to our members. It reflects our aim to be as proactive as possible, canvassing and putting forward members’ views to the relevant authorities, such as design of shop fronts, parking, graffiti, green sites, transport and litter.
We are affiliated to the Haringey Federation of Residents’ Associations.
