Golden Lane News

§ Community Centre Survey

The City has started consultation on the future of the Community Centre. This includes turning it into a new education centre and estate office. This would be matched with the construction of four new flats in Great Arthur House.  

Survey

A survey on the future of the Golden Lane Community Centre has been completed and is now available to download. Conducted by GLERA and goldenlaneestate.org, it asked a number of key questions to gauge support, interest and ideas on the content, management and maintenance of the centre.

The report can be downloaded here.

§ New school

There are also plans for a joint venture with the London Borough of Islington to build a new two form entry junior school as part of the City of London Academy together with ninety one flats on the Richard Cloudsley site overlooking Basterfield House.  Architects Hawkins Brown have now been appointed to design this project.  The site is entirely in the London Borough of Islington so all comments on the planning aspects of this project will need to be made to them.

§ Bernard Morgan House 

This former section house has been sold. Residents should have received invitations to a consultation and exhibition taking place on 29th and 30th January.  The architects for this scheme are AHHM who were responsible for restoring the Barbican Centre.

See the forum for further comments.

§ Great Arthur House Curtain Wall

Work has started and is due to complete by November of this year.

§ Barbican Area Public Realm

There are extensive plans for improving the public spaces in Barbican and around the edge of the Estate.

§ Peabody Estate

Peabody are also planning major landscape works and, it is rumoured, a new building on the vacant site adjacent to Golden Lane.

"Lucy, I have central heating. Where is your flat in Crescent? Are you a tenant or a leaseholder? If a leaseholder then you will have to install central heating yourself, but if a tenant then the City should be doing that for you. However, I do not…"

"Yes, David, it is clear that the Pets Policy, as explained to me, acting on legal advice, is discriminatory. Our personal views are not relevant.  The important thing is what a judge would consider, according to the Law.  And, the City of…"
