Save Bernard Morgan House

City of London

Imagine a Golden Lane Estate that was going to achieve Carbon Net Zero. Imagine a place that was green, resilient to climate change and committed to recycling, waste reduction and conservation of energy. Imagine a place with lots of trees, new planting, and a real commitment to encouraging biodiversity.

The City of London launched its Climate Action Plan last year. Over the past six months a number of open-air events have taken place bringing residents together to look at ideas for improving Golden Lane Estate. Discussions have looked at:
• Energy and waste
• Working together
• Communications
• Working with the City
• Ideas for greening the Estate

An interactive map has been created which lists all of the ideas discussed to date.

On Saturday 16th October a planning workshop took place to look at how to take the work of the past year forwards. The following ideas were developed and divided between Do it yourself [DIY] and Do it with others [DIWO]:
