Final version puts back some areas cut out of earlier ’emasculated’ proposal
The City of London Corporation has given its backing to the creation of a new conservation area for its Barbican and Golden Lane estates that includes some areas controversially missed out of earlier proposals.
Members of the residents’ associations representing both of the Chamberlin, Powell and Bon-designed estates last year submitted a request for the creation of a super-conservation area covering both sites, the nearby Brewery Conservation Area and the Museum of London site to the south-east.
But City planning officers questioned the justification for such an all-encompassing heritage zone and suggested the creation of separate conservation areas for each estate that excluded buildings in between, the Brewery area and an area dubbed “zone 5” including the museum, north of London Wall.
