‘The City of London Corporation is currently in the process of appointing a contractor, and one is expected to be in place by August 2022, subject to Committee approvals’ Following confirmation of the contractor, we will be consulting with residents across the Estate regarding a Construction Management Plan, to ensure the needs and suggestions of residents and neighbours are taken on board before works commence. Currently, construction work is on course to begin in the latter half of 2022. We are also now recruiting new members for our Resident Steering Group, allowing estate residents to stay informed and ask questions through regular meetings with the project team. Should you wish to join, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will add you to our list of members which is currently being updated. PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED WITH CONDITIONS In July 2021 Islington Council granted planning permission for 91 new homes and landscape improvements on the York Way Estate. The planning permission came with 37 conditions that need to be discharged at various points over the delivery of the project. Most of these are technical / detail design considerations; you can find out more in the committee report online: democracy.islington.gov.uk/documents/s25483/ The City of London Corporation took this opportunity to gather further feedback on other aspects of the estate’s future, such as a sculpture on the roof of the proposed community centre and the plan for a Residents’ Growing Garden behind Shepherd House, as well as to discuss the ongoing role of the Resident Steering Group. To read about the feedback we received, and that has been acted on, please see the Autumn newsletter and latest report. We have recently submitted a non-material amendment for our scheme, which you can view by clicking the following London Borough of Islington link: Online Standard Details (islington.gov.uk).
