The new borough-wide local plan 2033, known as LP33, will be the key strategic planning document used to direct and guide development in the borough up to 2033. Our aim is to make sure that the right amount of development is built in the right place at the right time so that the future needs of the borough are met.
On 23 January 2019, Hackney's Local Plan 2033 was submitted to the planning inspectorate for examination. The submission documents and supporting documents, including summaries of the responses received during the consultation are available to view at https://hackney.gov.uk/LP33-exam
Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, joined by Cllr Rebecca Rennison and Cllr Caroline Selman, unveiled the first in a series of contactless donation points being rolled out across the borough this month, to help charities combat homelessness.
The points take a donation of £3 from contactless cards, with 100% of the donations split equally between the 22 charities within the London Homeless Charities Group. The money is spent on providing essential services across London, helping rough sleepers to cope with the day-to-day but also to forge a path away from life on the streets.
The terminals are run by TAP London, a non-profit organization which was founded in Hackney in 2017 and is supported by the Mayor of London. Thanks to a request from the Council, they are now being rolled out across the borough.
The first terminals have now been installed, located at Hackney Town Hall, Hackney Service Centre and at Climpsons on Broadway Market, with more sites set to launch soon. Find out more at www.taplondon.org

On Saturday the Kings Crescents Residents Group brought the beach to their estate in Hackney with funding from the the council. The resident led event attended by over 100 people saw the Vince Murrain Community Hall decorated as a beach scene complete with palm trees, sea gulls and a tropical refreshments table. With Wheely Tots providing bike based family learning, large games, face painting (thanks to Source Partnership), a quiz and creative activities along with the chance to find out more about the Residents Group there was fun for all ages. Councillor Potter who was in attendance commented on how wonderful it was to see the hall transformed and the community coming together to enjoy the day.
