Two chances to contribute before Council put the Stamford Hill Area Action Plan out for consultation

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
10.30am-2.30pm

Oak Tree Community Centre, 77 Bethune Rd, London N16 5ED

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

Area Plan Consultation Meeting

Stamford Hill gateway

As you may know Hackney Council is currently in the process of consulting with residents about a proposed ‘Area Action Plan’ for Stamford Hill.

More details can be found on the Council site
Unfortunately the opportunities to participate in this consultation have not always been widely publicised.

There will however be a workshop session on ‘Our Streets and Public Spaces’ at 6pm at the Stamford Hill Estate Community Centre N16 6RS, on Tuesday July 21st.

The event will be facilitated by the Council’s Consultant and local ward councillors will be present.

We would encourage residents to get along and both find out more about the process, and contribute their ideas.
