During the early stages of developing the Draft Strategy, information was gathered from a wide variety of sources. Pedestrian movement experts Space Syntax carried out an initial survey and analysis of how people move through the area. A version of the report is included in the Area Strategy Evidence Base above.
Concurrently, consultants Publica undertook a detailed spatial and contextual analysis of the Barbican and Golden Lane area. In order to gather peoples' views on the positives and negatives in the area, a consultation was carried out including 12 drop-in sessions, questionnaires sent to every residence on the Barbican and Golden Lane Estates, postcard responses and online submissions and a wide range of stakeholder consultation events.
These stakeholder events included eight themed workshops, in addition to interviews with individuals from a variety of backgrounds and interests in the area. Finally, audience surveys were carried out by the Museum of London and the Barbican Centre. Collectively a total of over 4,000 responses were received.
Members and Chief Officers asked Publica to carry out further work to develop a vision for a Cultural Hub based on workshops with representatives from cultural institutions. A refined version is included in the Evidence Base.
This report was produced by feedback analysis consultants, Consultation Plus. It provides a summary of all responses received during consultation on the area draft and was used as primary reference for revising the draft area strategy.
