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?
