Change in political leadership at Hackney Council

The directly-elected Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, has announced he will temporarily step aside from his leadership of Hackney Council.

Statutory Deputy Mayor of Hackney, Cllr Anntoinette Bramble, will assume temporary leadership of the Council, as set out in the Council’s constitution. The Council’s existing Cabinet will remain, and maintain their current and additional responsibilities.

Cllr Anntoinette Bramble, Deputy Mayor

The Council is doing vital work supporting those most in need in our borough. We face a busy period and, in September, Cabinet will meet to progress many of our plans. 

I will make sure the Council maintains its focus on continuing to serve the people of Hackney to make sure the borough is a fairer, safer, greener and healthier place for everyone.

My work as Deputy Mayor, Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services and as a councillor have given me more than a decade of experience serving the residents of Hackney. And I’m proud to have the support of a strong and dedicated Cabinet, and corporate leadership team at the Council. 

Together we will continue to provide the services residents need.

Cllr Anntoinette Bramble, Deputy Mayor
Dawn Carter-McDonald, Interim Chief Executive

I would like to reassure the people of Hackney that business continues at the Council, and we remain resolute in providing the highest standard of services for the borough. 

I will be working closely with Cllr Bramble and the Cabinet in delivering the many commitments and priorities of the Council.

Dawn Carter-McDonald, Interim Chief Executive
