Plans and strategies

Hackney’s community strategy 2018-28

Our sustainable community strategy 2018-28 sets out our collective vision for the borough and the kind of future we would like to see for our communities and it lays out the steps we are going to take to achieve this. In 2013 we produced a ‘State of the Borough’ report, outlining progress against each of the objectives in the sustainable community strategy.

In 2017 and early 2018 there was a public consultation on the new sustainable community strategy to 2028. The final strategy, with revised objectives, was agreed by Cabinet in 2018.

Strategic plan

We have adopted a strategic plan – working together for a better Hackney for 2022 to 2026 . The plan sets out the ambitions for us for the next four years. It also sets out the challenges we face, and describes how we need to respond and change, working closely with residents and partners.

Inclusive economy strategy

The Inclusive economy strategy: Responds to the growing recognition that economic growth, left to its own devices, clearly does not work for everyone and sets out how the Council, working with partners will seek to shape a more inclusive economy in Hackney.

Poverty reduction framework

This strategic framework sets out the Council’s approach to poverty reduction and how we aim to do this.

This is the first time in recent years that Hackney has developed a poverty reduction strategic framework for residents of all ages and builds upon previous work focussed on child poverty.

The framework was designed based on the best available evidence of what works and on a detailed review of needs which will be published alongside the framework.
