'Gagging' of our resident Common Councillors

Beech Street Tunnel

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

This was first announced via local press and TV in December, much to the surprise of many local residents as there has been no consultation. There are concerns that there will be unwelcome consequences for the area which will affect the live and health of the local resident community.

Consultation on 'Open Spaces'

A resolution was passed at annual wardmote in March 2019:

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.
