OUR GREAT NEIGHBOURHOOD

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...

DOWNFALL OF THE CITY CORPORATION'S DISPENSATIONS POLICY

Posted by Graeme Harrower on January 27, 2020 at 11:00 0 Comments

This is the text of an email that I sent to all members of the Court of Common Council on 27 January:

SUMMARY

During the last 15 months, the Standards Committee has done a 170 degree turn on its dispensations policy, ending with the decision at its meeting last Friday to abandon the restriction on granting dispensations to vote “only in exceptional circumstances”, and to require democracy to be taken into account when granting such…

The latest on the City’s “standards” shambles….

Posted by Graeme Harrower on January 23, 2020 at 10:00 0 Comments

For the last five months, three resident councillors have been trying to obtain general “dispensations” from the City’s standards committee to speak and vote on behalf of their constituents on matters which affect those councillors no more than any of their constituents.

But in the City, where…

At the meeting of the Court of Common Council in July, Alderman Ian Luder put a “question” to the Chair of the Standards Committee that attempted to cast a slur on my character by insinuating that I was engaging in some kind of criminal activity.

His “question” was as follows:

“Could the Chairman of the Standards Committee confirm the rumours that a Member has made a claim for rights of light arising from the construction of COLPAI. If so, has the claim been settled, and…

More dealings with the Standards Committee

Posted by Sue Pearson on July 23, 2019 at 19:54 0 Comments

Extract of email sent on 15 July 2019 from Councillor Sue Pearson to the Standards Committee

"The current dispensations policy – which claims to “maintain public confidence” - was demolished three months ago when, in a petition, residents demonstrated that the policy had the opposite effect. The public’s view of an acceptable dispensations policy was recently articulated in four identical requests for general dispensations which the Dispensations Sub-Committee…
