Money for Repairs

On the 13th January there was a full City Council meeting where Sue Pearson, your local Common Councillor, proposed a motion that the repairs programme for all the City Estates be accelerated by using some of the City’s financial reserves. The repairs programme is moving incredibly slowly even by the City’s standards with the last 5 year plan being inadequately funded while the Estates decay and tenants live in unacceptable conditions. The City has a fund called City Cash which has reserves of £2.6 billion. They have dedicated £50 million of this money to support small business during the pandemic but nothing to support residents. £37 million of this money has not been spent and Sue suggested that, as a start, it might be a good idea to redirect this to Estate repairs.At the Council meeting discussion of the motion was cut short by a point of order and the the motion to speed up repair of your Estates was lost by 75 votes to 19. A supportive councillor, Graeme Harrower, has written a…See More

1 Golden Lane

Myself and a couple of other residents had a meeting today with the developer and architect for 1 Golden Lane, the old UBS building between the Denizen and the Barbican. The proposals are to refurbish the building as offices. They said that they were looking at making it taller but this would probably be housed in the top floor that is currently a plant space. It currently has an underground garage and this will be changed to plant and cycle facilities and the development will be car free.We…See More

Tim, how do I go about raising funds for an event in mid July for the GLE? Long time since I did anything like this but pretty sure it has to go through Glera and that there are forms to fill in for the City.
Christine with thanks
