Filming in Fann Street!!

Can there be some kind of emergency meeting with regard to illegal filming in and around GLE?In Fann Street this week alone we’ve had Two film crews, the first lot left behind 10 helium gas canisters (full size) and litter strewn everywhere. The second lot (tonight) were moved on 3 times by the police, and we had to endure 3 hours of disturbance!!The CoL Police received numerous calls, regarding the filming, only to turn up half an hour later, and stayed for approx 5 minutes and politely asked them to move on!! Which it took a further hour for them to leave, and again Fann Street left strewn with litter.With the surrounding Street closures around the Estate (Beech St, Golden Lane. Fortune St, and Brackley St) Fann Street is taking the brunt of Noise pollution, as well as these Film Crews. I did inform the Alderman of this last year, but not surprisingly if it isn’t Barbican Related, then there’s no interest. It all feels like no one wants to get involved or try to prevent further…See More

The City of London Corporation is proposing to build a new free school for primary aged children on the site of Richard Cloudsley.
This link sets out the proposal:
There is an online survey. There are also consultation meetings this Thursday at City of London School for Girls.

The site will include housing due for completion in summer 2017, but I don't know what type of housing.

The consultation is spefically about the decision or otherwise to set up a new school. This would be separate from any consultation on housing.

Hi Paul

Do you know what the timetable is for getting the new school built?  I have been looking at Islington's planning applications website but no sign of any application yet.

I think it will be part of the City of London Academy rather than a free school.

Islington ought to be making an announcement quite soon.

Hawkins Brown Architects have been appointed to design the site but no information has been released on their plans.

I found:

City of London Primary Academy Islington, opening September 2017

on the website at

and an article from JULY 7, 2015 by Lawrence at

The timetable that I saw for it to open on site in 2017 required the planning application to be submitted at the end of last summer. It is likely that they are planning to use another site for at least the 2017 intake.
