Why 1 March needs to be a date in your diary and money, time and energy are required now

Richard Cloudesley site

Islington Planning Committee will be meeting at 7-30pm to hear the planning application for the Richard Cloudesley site. Some changes have been made to the plans under pressure from GLE but there is still much that remains which is a huge cause for concern. Key issues include a tower…

But is this the way it works in the City of London?

Like many on Golden Lane Estate, I…

RCS CoLPAI - alternative plans

Is it possible to achieve the same amount of school and housing accommodation on the RCS site in a low to medium rise format that matches the surrounding housing?

The RSC CoLPAI GLERA sub-committee have looked at possible plans in more detail and it turns out that not only is it possible; you could achieve 15% more social housing on the site. The key is to combine the school and housing in one building which saves space. This layout would:

A new chance to create something really good and useful on the Richard Cloudesley site

GLERA has been opposing plans from the City of London and Islington for the development of a sixty-six apartment tower block and a two-form entry primary school on the site currently occupied by Richard Cloudesley School. Thanks to the recent submission of a new planning application by the two local authorities, there is now a three-week opportunity to comment on the proposals and suggest alternatives. GLERA urges residents to support the alternative proposals.



The new deadline is…

Senior estate officer

Hello folks,



My primary train of thought at present is how best to develope the use of the community centre for the best use of the residents of this estate.
