We are a small but committed group of local residents who would like to improve Hackney’s streets and public spaces for social uses including walking, socialising resting, playing and exercising.
Hackney is lucky to have a dense street network with low car ownership and high levels of walking (40%) and cycling. However, motor traffic continues to dominate Hackney’s streets even though there are clear social, health, economic and environmental benefits in encouraging walking and improving the public realm.
We campaign on the following issues:
We engage with the Council on these issues, and respond to Council consultations on any issues that affect the public realm and walking in general.
We work closely with the Hackney Cycling Campaign on many issues.
The Local Group usually has a meeting every two months in the Pembury Tavern on Amhurst Road E8. Much of our communication is through email.
Please do come to the local group with any issues in your area that concern you. We all want to help.
Just so you know, below you're contacting a local volunteer, not the national charity.
