'Open Spaces' Consultation

Residents are increasingly concerned about non-resident use of the open spaces on the Estate. These issues were discussed at GLERA’s drop in at the Christmas Market 2018 and at the Community Conversation about Anti Social Behaviour in February 2019.

This led to a resolution being passed at annual wardmote in March:

“It was Resolved that the City of London Corporation commission a study reporting in no more than one year regarding pedestrian flows through the Golden Lane Estate ("GLE") resulting from current and anticipated property developments in the vicinity of the GLE and consult with GLE residents regarding the current "private" status of the GLE as a result of which residents pay for the maintenance of areas of the GLE that are in practice open to the public.”

This is a really important issue for us all who live and work on Golden Lane Estate and it’s essential that as a community we understand what our options may be, the implications, the barriers, the burden of proof required to show that there are problems. Foot traffic will increase with new residential neighbours, Crossrail and Culture Mile and ultimately, we want to help shape this consultation.

In June 2019 as a joint initiative the Estate Office and GLERA hosted the first of what will be a number of Community Conversations to discuss the contradictory private/ public nature of our estate and the resulting implications.

 The aim of the first meeting was to hear (and document) people’s concerns and experiences with a view to creating a structured series of further Conversations. The conversation was attended by over 20 residents and four of our local Councillors.

You can read the resulting report here. It aims to do the following:

  • give an overview of the points and concerns that were raised at the Community Conversation
  • detail information required so residents can be better informed as we move towards some creative suggestions and solutions
  • outline what we can do as residents to make our lived experience of anti-social behaviour more visible ie embrace Big Data to record incidents of concern
  • report back on the City’s response to the resolution to date and the reaction of our Common Councillors

Since report was published:

Vernon Ashford, Treasurerer of GLERA has researched status of footpath and roads on the Estate

The City have revised their response

A follow up Community Conversation about our Open Spaces was held in the Community Centre on 24 October 7-9pm. Report of the key discussions will be posted here shortly.
