Develop the Daubeney Road car park into a thriving community hub

Hackney Council is planning 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 too small for housing. It would be far better developed as a thriving neighbourhood hub. This would help bring our communities together, protect our natural growing space and provide a mix of workshop and cafe amenities.
We call on Hackney Council to reconsider its proposals and come up with a new plan.

Develop the Daubeney Road car park into a thriving community hub..
I support Hackney Council’s programme to provide affordable housing for all income groups. However, I believe any housing development must be balanced against the need to develop attractive neighbourhoods for local communities. We need facilities that improve our well-being and provide opportunities for work and meaningful activity.
The Daubeney Road car park hosts a beautiful garden, heritage mural and open growing space built by local volunteers and groups. The space is too small for housing. It would be better developed as a thriving neighbourhood hub, protecting natural growing space and providing a mix of workshop and cafe amenities.
I call on Hackney Council to reconsider its proposals.
