Shortlisted, but sadly not the winner of The Great Neighbourhood category, Golden Lane Estate was honoured with a poem by the Academy of Urbanism poet in residence, 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....

Help pay for legal advice to challenge the recognised 'harm' caused by COLPAI development
FANS of Golden Lane (Friends, Admirers, Neighbours and Supporters) have launched a Crowd Justice page to raise funds for legal advice to explore whether or not the process by which the local authorities granted permission for the CoLPAI development was reached fairly and if there is a case to bring against them. They want to secure a better outcome for everyone, including our new neighbours. Pledge you support here - every donation, no matter how small, helps.
Sign the petition to protect the trees bordering the COLPAI site and our allotments
The current development plans will see seven established trees needlessly ripped out. They will be the best and only screen between the estate and a noisy, dirty building site once construction work starts and will be essential for the health of the COLPAI school children. Sign here
