Local ward councillors are responsible for representing the people who live in this area, on a wide variety of issues. Councillors (also known as Members) are normally elected for four year terms, and are elected by local people to plan, run, monitor and develop Council services.

Councillors work to improve the quality of life for people within their area and make decisions about local issues. They have to decide what is in the public interest amidst a range of conflicting issues and views. Councillors usually represent a Political Party, although can be Independent.

All Councillors represent all the citizens in their ward.

Boris Johnson: Withdraw your support for two luxury skyscrapers in Hackney – Sign the Petition!

Property developers Hammerson and Ballymore

have submitted plans for two high rise towers of up to 48 floors

 the same height as a Canary Wharf high-rise

at the Bishopsgate Goods-Yard site in Shoreditch,

this threatens to plunge parts of Shoreditch in darkness 

MAHciczOLDvtfVl-800x450-noPad

Hammerson’s Proposal in the colour circle, Councils Low-rise alternative Proposal in Dark Brown

They would contain mainly expensive, luxury flats well beyond the reach of most people and have a hugely detrimental impact on the local area, both residential and commercial. With one fell swoop this development could tear the heart out of the community and destroy the burgeoning creative and digital business cluster known as ‘Tech City’.

Sign the Petition Here !

Hackney Council had been discussing an alternative scheme with the developers. However, now that London Mayor Boris Johnson has thrown his weight behind their proposals for two luxury skyscrapers the developers have reverted to their original plans. They know that Mr Johnson has intervention powers that could assist them.
