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

COLPAI - Latest consultations - On a happier note

If you have visited the COLPAI project site recently you will see: 

"We apologise for any inconvenience but the COLPAI School Waste Strategy consultation has been discontinued."

It's worth visiting the site though to look at the proposals that they have made for replacing the trees and having your say. The consultation is open until the 5th April. The proposed options are both good and the boards displayed at the drop-in also had details of climbing plants that they plan to plant soon to grow up the fence and provide a green screen and some habitat for our birds and wildlife.

At the Housing Management and Almshouses Sub Committee meeting last week it was agreed that there would be consultations on the following conditions

  • Details of landscaping/tree planting for the school (condition 26);
  • Details of landscaping/tree planting for public realm and Basterfield access road (condition 27);
  • Details of tree pits and trees (condition 28);
  • Nesting boxes (condition 36);
  • Delivery servicing plan for the school (condition 43);
  • Delivery servicing plan for residential/commercial (condition 44);
  • Refuse/recycling provision (condition 45);
  • Refuse collection point (condition46)
  • Provision of long and short stay cycle parking (condition 52);
  • Hours of community use of the school hall (condition 64);
  • Hours of playground use (condition 65).

The dates of the future resident meetings for the year were also agreed. I had hoped that they would alternate drop-in sessions with public meetings but the current plan is for public meetings quarterly. This will be reviewed in the summer when residents can feed back their preferences and there will be some information on numbers attending etc.

Consultation meetings about the conditions will be separate from these meetings and dates will be advertised.

For your diaries the dates are:

April 25 Drop-in, May 23 Drop-in, June 20 Public meeting, 25 July Drop-in, 22 August,19 September, 10 October, 14 November, 12 December.
