On Monday November 26 from 7-9pm residents and businesses can ask Mayor Philip Glanville about issues that matter to them, as well as offer their ideas and aspirations for the borough, at the second annual Hackney Mayor’s Question Time.
Joining the Mayor will be Dr Melissa Butcher - long-term Hackney resident and lecturer at Birkbeck University, where she researches how cities change and the impact on communities. She writes regularly on issues relating to gentrification, diversity and social cohesion, and has been working with young people in Hackney to create films and reports as part of the Creating Hackney as Home project.
This is a really good opportunity to highlight any concerns you might have and bring them to the Mayors attention. Please join the conversation on how to improve Hackney on Monday 26 November. The event will take place in the Town Hall.

Here’s what attendees can expect:
Hackney Council are currently recruiting for an additional 7 residents who have a passion for improving the communities they live in and to sit on The Resident Liaison Group which has direct influence on how housing services provided by the Council are run and delivered.
The role, in the Resident Liaison Group (RLG), means residents will get to make a real impact on council housing, estates and neighbourhoods by monitoring, evaluating, idea-sharing, and looking critically at what the Council is doing or proposing to do on all services affecting tenants and leaseholders.
As part of this group, which is the highest level of resident involvement, residents will look at the performance and policies of housing services and work directly with the Housing Director and the Cabinet Member for Housing Services to influence change and help drive improvements.
This is a real opportunity to get involved and share your ideas, so if interested please find out more and sign up here.
