A Tribute to Joan Flannery

Joan Flannery 1928 - 2022It is with great sadness we inform you that Joan Flannery died in UCLH hospital at 11am on Wednesday, 15th June 2022 in UCLH hospital. She slipped peacefully away leaving her son Marc and three grandsons, Nathan, Kieran and Joseph.Joan was born a Liverpudlian in 1928 moving to London in 1948 where, among other roles, became the Landlady of the 'Three Greyhounds' Pub in Soho during the 1950’s. When Marc was born in 1960 they found themselves living in a one bedroom flat in Old Street where she had the support of wonderful friends and neighbours.On returning to work at the GPO (now BT), Joan was soon able to move onto Golden Lane Estate, first to Hatfield House in 1969 before downsizing to Great Arthur House in 1984 when Marc left home.Anyone who knew Joan would remember her as a fiercely determined and the driving force behind the Golden…See More

Eoin Gormley from construction company, McAleer and Rushe introduced the company and discussed the changes that they hoped to make to the Construction Management Plan (CMP) which is currently available for comment on the City of London planning portal particularly in terms of site access and traffic management.

The CMP currently offers the following plans for the two phases of substructure and superstructure:

Part 1, p16 - outlines site access / egress during substructure which mirrors the plans used by GLD
Part 4
, p3 - outlines site access / egress post substructure during main construction.
Although the plans show circulation via Brackley Street, Viscount Street and onto Fann Street, at the Liaison Group meeting alternative plans were put forward. Apparently City Corporation has agreed to site access from Aldersgate Street with marshals operating the emergency gates. Fann Street will be closed to traffic other than construction traffic from the emergency gates to Golden Lane, with only a cycle route. The section of Fann Street from Aldersgate Street to the emergency gates will be disrupted with wagons waiting to unload parking in the street and probably blocking the ramp into Golden Lane Estate. 
Residents and neighbours attending the meeting expressed deep concern about the proposed changes, particularly from a safeguarding perspective - for residents of Tudor Roase Court, the nurser, cyclists nd pedestrians.

Although these are potentially not the final plans it is worth submitting an objection if you are unhappy with the plans to close part of Fann Street to use as site access point during main construction. You can do this via the planning portal or email 

Printed copy of the documents should be available for viewing in the Estate Office.  You can also download below or from the planning portal.
