Hatching Dragons in the Barbican

Hatching Dragons - the UK's first bilingual Mandarin/ English early years provider - is opening its first day nursery just round the corner from the Golden Lane Estate at the beautiful Capel Jewin on Fann St. We thought that we'd try and get in touch with you, our new neighbours, to introduce ourselves and our nursery. We'll be hosting open days for any interested parents, week beginning the 7th April, and would love to offer Golden Lane residents a rolling discount on our nursery places. For more information, please get in touch with us on 020 7287 7020 or via email to barbican@hatching-dragons.com, or take a look at our website, www.hatching-dragons.com…See More

"Alan - the rent increase was raised at the Wardmote, although not by you. The City of London follows National guidelines for rent increases set up in 2002. Under the policy rents for social housing may increase each year by RPI plus 0.5%. So,…"

"I don't think BM House will be converted into flats but demolished. If the Church came down it would be a substantial site for development. My only objection is like the YMCA there is no hope of truly affordable housing. If it is…"

Welsh Church and Police Section House under threat

Are Golden Lane residents alert to the probable re-development of the block bounded by Golden Lane, Brackley Street, Viscount Street and Fann Street?The City of London Police plan to sell Bernard Morgan House,  the police section house, within five years, and the Welsh Church, which is struggling with a declining congregation has received (but declined) what is likely to have been an opening offer for their freehold.These buildings are not listed but were built at the same time as Golden Lane and complement the estate in a very balanced way.  Any re-revelopment could be a disaster.See More

"Bernard Morgan House is now being marketed with a guide price of £17.5 million and a suggestion that the site could offer 80,000 square feet of space if re-developed - 80% more than the current building mass and much higher.  High-end…"

Christine Clifford replied to Alan Line's discussion Rent Increase - But Where's The Windows!!!
"The rent increase are outstripping increases in pay and pensions so it will just push more people into claiming housing benefit and community tax help eventually or increase the housing benefit bill even more. It's called not joined up policy."

Lee Studley replied to Alan Line's discussion Rent Increase - But Where's The Windows!!!
