"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

More offices

please?

Oh no not please re offices

..but what else will pay for it?

They were managing to pay for it when it was going to be a concert hall.

what is interesting is that they have carried on with the museum relocation without knowing how they are going to pay for it.

My initial in:

  • mark the Wall line across all the public realm- inc the street.
  • ditto the Roman/ Medieval moat (if one existed)
  • mark all and any bomb craters as the entire site was cleared with German help in 1940 an dI read there is no ‘Blitz’ memorial in the City- only our Firefighters.
  • why not a simple T-junction?  Th eexisting rotunda garden will be lost anyway and replaced by the new building?  Retaining the loopy ex-roundabout just gives us another Old Street disaster zone.
  • lots of trees please- sequester carbon, shade in Summer, homes for wildlife
  • a fountain or 3- the sound battles against urban drone

...and

  • the rain (& sun) shade over public pavements is a pleasing feature of the current Barbican & Golden Lane edge design- full arcades on Golden Lane- definitely encourages pedestrianism 

Just spotted this.....

Yipppeeee.

"this consultation runs until 31 December, at which point we will collate all feedback for the design team to consider for the next iteration of the designs. However, we will of course continue our dialogue with residents much beyond this.

Thank you for suggestions regarding marking, road layouts, trees and a fountain - we will carefully consider them in the updated designs.

Best wishes,

The London Wall West Consultation Team"

If you see the document that they have produced they have set out the results of the initial consultation and then ignored them completely. As usual City ‘consultations’ are a waste of time.
