Get involved in consulting on the proposal to create a miniature forest planting bed at Fann Street on Golden Lane Estate. The aim of the project is to trial the City’s climate resilience measures and to address the City’s key climate resilience risks, by improving biodiversity and reducing flood risk. Help design a space improves the area for climate, people, and nature.

A proposal was presented to the Imagine Golden Lane meeting that took place on Saturday 9th September. If you would like to download the presentation, please go to the Imagine Golden Lane website.

It’s a pity the only time you ever get involved with GLE is either campaigning for more bike storage, or Mini Forrest in Fann Street. Never heard you once voice concern regarding the film crews or, noise disturbance in Fann Street.

Thanks for this comment. I think it is unfair to say that the only time I get involved with GLE is on bike storage and the mini-forest (which has only just been presented to residents). Both of these projects are linked to the Imagine Golden Lane at Net Zero project which I have been involved with for around three years and which has brought together many people seeking to tackle climate emergency and biodiversity loss.

I hope you will agree that tackling these issues is of value. I have not yet expressed my personal opinion on the mini-forest proposal as this is at present an idea at an early stage of development by the COL Climate Action Team which will be brought back to an Imagine Golden Lane at Net Zero meeting in November. I am also cautious about getting involved in areas where I have no knowledge or expertise. ASB is an area where a number of people on the estate have considerable expertise and where Common Councillors also have a great deal knowledge.

I think that there may be some useful overlaps. Fo example, a new planting scheme may help to prevent ASB if it is carefully designed and also discussed with the housing office and the police.

It would be good to have an in person discussion on these matters, perhaps at the next Imagine Golden Lane meeting taking place on Saturday.
