Golders Green Development

History of The Suburb. The history of the Trust and the Suburb is complex. What follows here is a brief overview. Henrietta Barnett and the Beginnings of the Suburb The idea of building a residential Suburb for people of all incomes and classes began with Henrietta Barnett. Wife of Cannon Samuel Barnett, vicar of St Jude’s, Whitechapel, she had been inspired by her personal experiences of the poverty and appalling living conditions in her husband’s inner city parish to seek better housing for the poor. The Barnetts had a weekend house overlooking the Heath at Spaniards End and to the north of this lay acres of heath and farm land owned by Eton College.

With the opening of Golders Green station in 1900 there was a very real prospect of developers covering the land with standard bye-law housing. This impelled her to lobby for its retention as public open space and to draw up plans for a new residential area in the remaining acres where she could put her ideas into practice.

London City Airport: Ministers back £344m expansion. Image copyright London City Airport A £344m expansion programme at London City Airport has been given the go-ahead by ministers. The plans include an extended terminal, a new aircraft taxiway and upgraded public transport links, creating more than 2,000 jobs. The expansion will raise the number of take-offs and landings at the airport from 70,000 a year to 111,000.

The "terrible" decision has been dubbed "reckless" by Green Party London assembly member Caroline Russell. There will be a "generous" compensation package for local residents, the government said. London City Airport estimates the scheme will create 1,600 jobs for staff, together with 500 construction jobs. It's estimated this will almost double the number of passengers to six million a year by 2023. Chancellor Philip Hammond said the investment was a "vote of confidence in the resilience of our economy". Former London mayor Boris Johnson blocked the expansion plans, which had been backed by Newham Council. Causes and Effects of Suburbanisation - Causes and effects table in A Level and IB Geography.
