Golden Lane Estate Listed Building Management guidelines

Golden Lane Estate

Golden Lane Estate is a mixed use development that was constructed between 1953 and 1962 by the City of London Corporation. It includes a leisure centre and swimming pool, community centre and more than 500 flats. It was originally designed as a social housing estate. The architects were Chamberlin, Powell and Bonn.

In 1997 the whole estate was listed. Crescent House is listed at Grade II*, the remainder of the Estate, including the landscaping and public areas are listed at Grade II.

In June 2007 the Listed Building Management Guidelines were prepared to help residents, those managing the estate and planning officers to assess what kind of work will need listed building consent. The Guidelines are a Supplementary Planning Document. In 2012, after five years in operation, the document was reviewed to reflect changes in legislation and regulations and also fill in gaps in the guidance that have become apparent since the first version was published.

This is the document as adopted by the Planning and Transportation Committee on 5 November 2013. A fully accessible version is in preparation and will be uploaded in due course. In the meantime if you have difficulty in viewing this document please contact the team.

Below is an information leaflet that explains the guidelines and what they mean for residents.
