GLERA: Lease Extension Meeting

Wednesday 15 March 6.30 – 8.00 pm
Sir Ralph Perring Centre

Secretary Michael Gove has been in the news recently with his announcements about leasehold reform and his desire to abolish the leasehold system. We don't know how long it may take to come in to effect, and what it may actually cover (or not as the case may be).

In the meantime, many Golden Lane leaseholders are getting close to the 80 year mark – the point where the lease renewal process becomes more complex and expensive. Waiting for lease reform may not be a comfortable option…

So that residents can make a more informed decision about when they renew their leases, GLERA has been in touch with Officers from the Corporation Lease Extension team and they have kindly offered to come along and answer questions about the current process.  They will be with us from 6.30 to 7.30 pm only.

Do come along!!!

More detailed info and useful documents on the GLERA website

Golden Lane Estate was a very worthy finalist for Academy of Urbanism's Great Neighbourhood Award 2018. We didn't win but came away with a certificate featuring the amazing image above and a beautiful poem by Ian McMillan:

Golden Lane Estate

All you need, anywhere, are streets paved with gold:
The gold of community, the gold of mutual benefit,
The gold of allotments in the early evening sun
That reflects on the windows of places built for living...
