Hackney Mayor's Question Time

Source By: London Borough of Hackney

Residents and businesses can ask Mayor Philip Glanville about the issues that matter to them, as well as offer their ideas and aspirations for the borough, at the second annual Hackney Mayor’s Question Time.

Joining the Mayor will be Dr Melissa Butcher - long-term Hackney resident and lecturer at Birkbeck University, where she researches how cities change and the impact on communities. She writes regularly on issues relating to gentrification, diversity and social cohesion, and has been working with young people in Hackney to create films and reports as part of the Creating Hackney as Home project.

Dr Butcher will be acting as chairperson, taking questions from the audience and posing some herself.


Mayor Glanville said: “This will be my second Mayor's Question Time, but the first of the new administration. These now annual events are an opportunity to hear from people from across Hackney’s diverse communities about the issues which matter most to them, whether it be housing, crime, schools and transport; jobs, high streets, redevelopment and the environment; or health, social care and community cohesion.


“There’s been a lot of change in Hackney and there’ll be much more to come in the years ahead. We face many challenges as a borough and as a Council, but I know there’s a huge amount of passion and creativity in our borough about how we can keep it a great place to live for everyone.


“It’s so important that as a Mayor, a Council, as residents and businesses, we have open and honest discussions; that the Council can explain its vision and work, and people can share their thoughts and ideas, so we can work together on solutions. This event is a forum to do precisely that.”

The event takes place at the Town Hall on Monday, November 26, from 7pm to 9pm. It’s free to attend but space is limited. For more information, and to book a place, visit
