There are two further opportunities to get involved at consultation meetings on the Stamford Hill Area Action Plan before it goes to the Hackney Council Cabinet in January 2017, when it will be put out for wider consultation.

These are open to all and free to attend: –

Thursday 3 November
5.30pm-8.30pm

Stamford Hill Community Centre, Stamford Hill Estate, London N16 6RS

Sunday 6 November

The Council and consultants have issued an Interim Report available here which gives an idea of the current thinking.

The issues seen as facing the area include:

– The need for accommodation for single people and large families
– The potential for all-round improvement of Stamford Hill Broadway
– The introduction of ‘character areas’
– The need to regularise shopping streets and areas like Dunsmure Road and Oldhill Street
– Areas identified for small-scale housing development
– How to improve representation the on the Area Action Plan panel

– Concerns about the need to house more residents and development ‘intensification’

In the meantime if you have any questions your are invited to call Sue Cooke AAP at Hackney Council on 020 8356 7740

Wilmer Place: two big wins!

Stokey Local has announced two big wins on the Wilmer Place development. Here are their headlines:-

“First an apology: it has been more than six months since our last update. However, we (or at least our very own ‘planning nerd’ Nick Perry and his team of volunteer experts) have not been idle.

We can report:-

  • An out of court settlement has provided us with the Financial Viability Assessments (and indicates that the planning committee were misinformed).
  • The developer Newmark Properties have sold the site and the new owner looks set to resell it in at least two parcels (which would preclude the original overdevelopment ever being realised).”

You can read the full report and background here.
