1999 was the year in which Enfield Council working with Arnos West Community Association, The Countryside Commission, funded by the Millennium Commission created the Trust and with public consultation, the plans for the Millennium Green. The Council appointed officer Ian Richardson to manage the creation of the Green and the work of digging and creating paths etc. started in this year. Volunteer work began with the first Tree Planting Day in November, when the entire boundary hedge was planted, as tiny whips, in one day.
