Golden Lane Bike project - results of resident consultation at Zoom

June 27, 2022 from 7pm to 8pm
Come to a zoom presentation on Monday 27 June from 7pm to 8pm In response to the pandemic, 2020 saw a major move towards encouraging cycling and walking in the City of London and across the capital. As an alternative to public transport and car use, making the most of the fresh air suddenly became very attractive. Golden Lane residents created an initiative to encourage increased cycling and walking. A grant application was made for funding to encourage cycling; refurbish existing bike sheds; add new public bicycle racks and create a set of safe and secure places for cycle storage. The grant application was made to the City of London Community Infrastructure Fund. The application was successful and detailed planning has now started to implement the project.

More offices

please?

Oh no not please re offices

..but what else will pay for it?

They were managing to pay for it when it was going to be a concert hall.

what is interesting is that they have carried on with the museum relocation without knowing how they are going to pay for it.

My initial in:

  • mark the Wall line across all the public realm- inc the street.
  • ditto the Roman/ Medieval moat (if one existed)
  • mark all and any bomb craters as the entire site was cleared with German help in 1940 an dI read there is no ‘Blitz’ memorial in the City- only our Firefighters.
  • why not a simple T-junction?  Th eexisting rotunda garden will be lost anyway and replaced by the new building?  Retaining the loopy ex-roundabout just gives us another Old Street disaster zone.
  • lots of trees please- sequester carbon, shade in Summer, homes for wildlife
  • a fountain or 3- the sound battles against urban drone

...and

  • the rain (& sun) shade over public pavements is a pleasing feature of the current Barbican & Golden Lane edge design- full arcades on Golden Lane- definitely encourages pedestrianism 

Just spotted this.....

Website: londonwallwest.co.uk

A public exhibition showcasing the early proposals is being held in the Frobisher Room 2* of the Barbican Centre, EC2Y 8DS, on:

Wednesday 8 December, 4pm-8pm

Yipppeeee.

"this consultation runs until 31 December, at which point we will collate all feedback for the design team to consider for the next iteration of the designs. However, we will of course continue our dialogue with residents much beyond this.

Thank you for suggestions regarding marking, road layouts, trees and a fountain - we will carefully consider them in the updated designs.

Best wishes,

The London Wall West Consultation Team"

If you see the document that they have produced they have set out the results of the initial consultation and then ignored them completely. As usual City ‘consultations’ are a waste of time.
