Develop the Daubeney Road car park into a thriving community hub

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

Hackney Council has put in a planning application to develop a row of housing on the Daubeney Road car park. 

Local residents back the provision of affordable housing. But this development would destroy a beautiful community garden, a wonderful heritage mural and much-loved growing space. Our garden provides a local oasis of calm – a welcome antidote to the stresses of modern life.

The need for housing must be balanced against the need for attractive neighbourhoods for local people. We need facilities to improve well-being and provide opportunities for work and meaningful activity.

The space is best developed as a thriving neighbourhood hub that would help bring our communities together. We have developed an alternative proposal that provides a mix of housing, workshops and natural growing space. However, Hackney Council has refused to meet with us to co-design the space. 

We call on Hackney Council to reconsider its proposals and work with us to come up with a new plan.
