About the scrutiny commission

Living in Hackney predominantly considers housing and the local environment. This frequently involves working with Hackney Homes and the many registered social landlords (RSLs) who operate in the borough, as well as parks user groups and environmental campaigners.

You can view the commission's full work programme for the year on the agenda for each of its meetings.

One-off items

The Commission was concerned that some estate and lettings agents were increasingly using misleading or false signage as a means of marketing. This was having a detrimental visual impact, particularly in some areas of the borough. A limited period of time was therefore spent on gauging the current approach to dealing with illegal signage and exploring any potential improvements.
