Shortlisted, but sadly not the winner of The Great Neighbourhood category, Golden Lane Estate was honoured with a poem by the Academy of Urbanism poet in residence, Ian McMillan.
Golden Lane Estate
All you need, anywhere, are streets paved with gold:
The gold of community, the gold of mutual benefit,
The gold of allotments in the early evening sun
That reflects on the windows of places built for living....

On reaching 2,000 signatures the Council are required to debate the concerns expressed by the petitioners.
"As a resident I welcome a positive use of the R.C. for housing & a school if proven necessary. However what is proposed is far too 'packed' in & threatening in its size to all surrounding it. Also I am very concerned about the Basterfield slip road which currently provides access for emergency & service vehicles & which in the plan will be much reduced & could threaten the safety of residents."
