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.

Commission details: membership, meetings, and contacts
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.
