'Gagging' of our resident Common Councillors

An 18 month trial starts in March to create the UK's first Zero Emission street with Beech Street tunnel.

Consultation on 'Open Spaces'

A resolution was passed at annual wardmote in March 2019:

“It was Resolved that the City of London Corporation commission a study reporting in no more than one year regarding pedestrian flows through the Golden Lane Estate ("GLE") resulting from current and anticipated property developments in the vicinity of the GLE and consult with GLE residents regarding the current "private" status of the GLE as a result of which residents pay for the maintenance of areas of the GLE that are in practice open to the public.”

In April 2017 the Barbican Association and Golden Lane Estates Residents' Association (GLERA) approached the City with proposals for a new conservation area to include the Barbican and Golden Lane Estates and surrounding areas (red lined boundary on map). 

The buildings of both Estates are listed and therefore already designated heritage assets, hence it is primarily the setting of the estates and the historical importance of the area that conservation area status will help to protect, in particular the massing and appearance of future developments and proposed demolitions within the area.

In May 2017 the City agreed to undertake an assessment of the proposed area.
