Golden Lane Parklet Co-Design

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!

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.

Following the survey we will be holding two online co-design workshops via Zoom. These will take place on
