Influence future of Hackney’s town centres

There is still time for Hackney residents and businesses to have their say on the future of Hackney Central and Dalston town centres.

Due to significant public interest in plans for the two town centres, Hackney Council is extending the pre-consultation period for comments until 30 May.

The Council’s Regeneration and Planning Division will be producing masterplans for each town centre looking at how the future development and growth in our town centres can be managed and co-ordinated, and how the streets and open spaces can be improved.

Your views will help inform the content of the new town centre masterplans.

Cllr Guy Nicholson, Hackney Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, said: “The views of local residents, visitors and local businesses are very important in helping the Council to set priorities for shaping our town centres in the future. This early consultation gives local residents and businesses a chance to help shape and enhance their town centres.”

More information on the masterplans is available on the Council’s website at: www.hackney.gov.uk/ep-policy-spd There is a display at Hackney Central Library about the Hackney Central masterplan and a display at CLR James Library about the Dalston masterplan.

Views can be sent via a questionnaire which can be downloaded from the website. If you have any questions regarding the masterplans please phone 020 8356 8038 for Hackney Central and 020 8356 8196 for Dalston.
