"The link takes me to a Word doc I think then nothing. I think it’s appalling that the City thinks so little of its residents. It’s time the business vote was abolished."

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

Here is an update from Sustrans on a proposal for a parklet on Golden Lane.

City of London and Sustrans are planning to co-design a temporary parklet in Golden Lane. Sustrans want to work with the community, businesses and schools to co-design and install the parklet, which will provide a pleasant space for people from all walks of life to visit, rest and meet-up in once it is allowed.

What is a parklet?

A parklet is a mini-park that repurposes road space to turn it into a space for recreation, play, socialising or resting. They can be made by extending the pavement and providing things like benches, planting, artwork, cycle stands, giant chess games...the limit is your imagination!

Why?

The project will help deliver healthier streets and facilitate a space for the community to enjoy, rest and meet while socially distancing outdoors, in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

When?

Between now and March 2021 we will be holding online activities to listen to residents, local groups, businesses and people working in the area about their views and suggestions for the space. We are hoping the parklet will be installed in Spring 2021.

Get involved!

Complete our initial short survey and join our mailing list here.

You can also fill in the survey on paper (you should receive this in the post) and leave it in the postbox we have installed in Golden Lane.

Co-design workshops

Following the survey we will be holding two online co-design workshops via Zoom. These will take place on

· 10th March 2021 from 12 - 1:30pm
· 15th March 2021 from 5:30 - 7pm

Please email  if you would like to attend either of these, specifying your preferred date.

Follow us on twitter to stay updated.

What an incredible waste of time and money.  There is a park opposite!  ...and lots of park-like spaces in the estate.  Why on Earth lose more parking spaces which allow visitors to drive in at the weekends?  Please spend spare cash on planting in the estate- and cleaning the scruffy concrete walls and pavings.  Better lighting for the long Winter nights?
