Consultation on Hackney's Draft Inclusive Economy Strategy- Closing Date 18 August 2019

Source By: Hackney Council

Making Hackney’s local economy more inclusive

Hackney Council is developing an Inclusive Economy Strategy, which will set out our vision and approach to help make Hackney’s economy more inclusive for everyone. 

Why we are developing this strategy 

We are developing this Strategy in response to concerns about the high levels of poverty and inequality in our borough and to a sense of disconnection some residents feel about recent economic changes happening here. There is also growing recognition nationally and globally that existing models of economic development which focus solely on economic growth and expect the benefits to trickle down to the wider community have not worked.  

What we’re focusing on

The draft strategy shows how the Council  is leading by example on this agenda and how we want to work with our residents, businesses of all sizes, and partners to deliver a more inclusive economy in Hackney.  We have focused on how we will make the most of all our assets, our levers, our influence and our social infrastructure to secure more benefits for local people and businesses from regeneration and economic growth happening in and around our borough. 

We have focused on three interconnected priorities: to support our town centres and neighbourhoods to thrive; to support local businesses and maximise affordable work space; and to connect residents to good quality work and skills opportunities.

The Strategy identifies the many ways we need to work with partners and the local community to shape our places and the local economy in ways that benefit as many people as possible.

We’d welcome your views

As a valued stakeholder, we wanted to share the draft strategy with you to help build broader understanding and support for this work and for these future commitments. 

  • We’d very much welcome your constructive challenge on any key gaps in our draft approach. 
  • We’d like to hear more about your priorities on this agenda. 
  • We’d welcome any suggestions about how we develop a new set of measures to help monitor and track how inclusive our local economy is?

Please do share the draft strategy within your own organisation.

You can view the Draft Inclusive Economy Strategy and take part in the consultation here 

Please note the consultation closes on 18 August 2019.

We are committed to ongoing engagement with local people and a wide range of other partners as we start the work of delivering on the commitments in this strategy.
