Tens of millions to be invested in Golden Lane Estate

The City of London Corporation will invest £29 million in the Golden Lane Estate to carry out repair works.

Members of its Community and Children’s Services Committee agreed the funding, which includes the refurbishment of windows, roofing, heating, ventilation, insulation, and redecoration works across all blocks on the housing estate.

Work is planned to begin in November this year with an estimated completion within 18-24 months.

The upgrades are part of the City Corporation’s Housing Major Works Programme, which includes the installation of new fire doors and sprinklers, with lighting, signage, and accessible routes upgraded.

Chairman of the City Corporation’s Community and Children’s Services Committee, Ruby Sayed, said:

“This £29 million investment shows our commitment to our residents, who deserve to have comfortable and well-maintained properties to live in.

“It’s part of a wider £95 million maintenance upgrade across all our 12 estates in London to make sure they are kept to a high standard.”

The City Corporation has two social housing estates in the Square Mile, the Golden Lane Estate, and the Middlesex Street Estate. It also has 10 other social housing estates situated in six different London Boroughs – Hackney, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark and Tower Hamlets.
