Housing debate, 9 March, 6.30-8.30pm, Stoke Newington Town Hall - Hackney: A Place to Call Home
This is an opportunity for Hackney residents to come together, hear from, and discuss with experts the wide range of issues facing housing in the borough. We know the complex changes to the housing system, in addition to economic factors, are being felt across London and particularly in Hackney. I urge anyone who is interested in the affordability of where they live, and who wants to get a better understanding of the issues at play, to come along and take part.
Housing will take centre stage at a public debate where experts and resident representatives will discuss the issues affecting them and affordability in the borough.
‘Hackney: A Place to Call Home’ takes place on Wednesday 9th March, 6.30-8.30pm, at Stoke Newington Town Hall, Church Street.
Part of the Council’s year-long public consultation ‘Hackney: A Place for Everyone’, it will be an opportunity for people to get a greater understanding the housing challenges Hackney faces, new government initiatives and changes to funding. People will be able to discuss the issues and suggest solutions which could help develop the Council’s future housing strategy.
The panel will be chaired by Nick Duxbury, executive editor of Inside Housing magazine. It will also feature Hackney resident Pat Turnbull, of the London Tenants Federation; a representative of local private renters group Digs; housing specialist Professor Christine Whitehead, of the London School of Economics; Tom Copley, London Assembly member and chair of its housing committee; and Cllr Philip Glanville, Hackney Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing.
