Vision for Hackney
HEALTHY, SAFE AND ACCESSIBLE STREETS FOR EVERYONE
The Hackney Vision is a plan to transform our borough and the way people move within it. The vision outlines how we can achieve these goals, benefiting everyone who lives, works and visits Hackney.
We have identified and mapped all the streets in the borough with their current interventions and suggested how the whole of Hackney could be modernised into a borough that puts people first. The proposed changes will reduce health inequalities, increase access to clean air and green space and put walking and cycling into the heart of our communities.
The visualisations show how Hackney streets could enable active lifestyles, provide space for social distancing, and create sustainable communities.
We want people to enjoy their street, not endure it
We want a walk to the shops to be a pleasure, not an ordeal
We want more people to have access to green spaces, and streets fit for the 21st century
We want people on foot to come first, not last
We want children to be able to get to school under their own steam – giving them independence and freedom
We want bus journeys to be quick and easy, not clogged by traffic
We want the city to keep working, without being dominated by the noise and pollution of through-traffic
We want the street to bring the community together
Our vision outlines how we can achieve these goals for Hackney, benefiting everyone who lives, works and visits our borough.
Tracey Fletcher, the CEO of Homerton University Hospital Trust has written to the Mayor of Hackney and Hackney Council to
Hackney Cycling Campaign (HCC) campaigns for better cycling provision in Hackney. We seek to make cycling in Hackney safer and more inviting, and to speak up for people who cycle or who would like to. Join us at our monthly meetings.
We are encouraging residents to write to their local Councillors and other decision makers to request filtered streets and Emergency School Streets in their areas, using template letters produced by Mums for Lungs.
