Elections

Elections to Common Council take place on Thursday 23 March.  The Polling Station for Golden Lane is the Sir Ralph Perrin Club.  Open from 8am.

Here is a group of Golden Lane Estate residents, many of whom spoke at an exceptionally packed and lively discussion at the Wardmote which took place on Wednesday 22nd at Barber Surgeon's Hall.

Housing and City of London Academy at RCS site

A  consultation recently took place on the development for the RCS site adjacent to Basterfield House.  Significant efforts are now taking place to challenge the current plans.  These are being led by the GLERA RCS sub-committee.  Residents who wish to comment on the proposals need to do so as soon as possible. 

Follow this link to sign the petition.

Follow this llink to the Facebook site.

Here is a short video summarising some of the problems with the proposals. Further updates can be found in the forum here.

The proposals for the RCS site were one of the key areas of debate at the Wardmote.  In particular questions were asked about planning decisions on Bernard Morgan House and the links with the RCS site, the height of the tower block, what it would mean for the new development to become part of Golden Lane Estate and the location of the school hall.  All candidates expressed support for GLE residents.
