Some of you might know that I have been a member of the Hackney Wick Partnership for a few years. We have been involved in trying to forge a desirable future for the Wick that respects local residents - as well as encourages the local creatives & existing businesses.
We started doing this way before London was even considered for the 2012 Olympics.
We have fed all our work into the Hackney Wick Masterplan, the Olympic Masterplan - and now the new Mayors (Boris that is) Development Plan.
This weekend & next week is another opportunity for you to come & put your thoughts to the brilliant people at London Thames Gateway about what we would all like for the Hackney Wick Hub.
This is the area both to the North (Tower Hamlets side) & South (Hackney side of the Hackney Wick Overground Station.
There are major changes for the areas right next to the sloping ramps on either side of the station. And they would love to hear what you would like to see there.
More cafes? A revitalised Lord Napier? Tree lined squares? Meeting fountain? Better welcoming open spaces? New routes/roads? Hotels?
What would you like to see when you come home after a hard days work? What would make you meet your visitors coming off the Overground with a sense of pride about Hackney Wick?
Please come down to 62 Wallis Road this Saturday 21st May - between 10am & 2pm. And also next Wednesday 25th May from 4pm until 8pm.
This is a great chance for you to be part of our lovely Hackney Wicks future - please try & make it down for a chat!!
