"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."

A supportive councillor, Graeme Harrower, has written a…See More

Relocation of Golden Lane Estate Office

A notice has been posted in the entrance area of Stanley Cohen House asking for email feedback on proposals for re-siting the Golden Lane Estate Office.   But we can't find the relevant website and the closing date is today!So here are our responses:-We're delighted that the initial idea to move the Estate Office to the Community Centre has now been abandoned, and hope that the newly sited office will have enough space to hold keys to all the flats on the estate (as in the Barbican).The…See More

Hello Brigid.  Thanks for the message of support.  Much appreciated.  I have spoken to my solicitor, and the Corporation have at last agreed to mediate with me over the garden issue.  My solicitor backed them into a corner, as there is a court hearing next month and she told them she would tell the Court about their lack of responding.  I also have a barrister, who is a QC, 2 fire reports which show the garden was never a fire hazard, and am obtaining a full medical report from my doctor, showing just how much stress I suffered over it.  I intend to get the garden back, which will also help others, who have had their plants removed.  The fight goes on!
