One-off review session - culture and the arts

The commission wanted to gain some insight into the extent to which cultural organisations are working to engage community groups who may be further away from participation than others. They did this during a single evidence gathering session, where they heard from six organisations operating in Hackney.

The Commission's findings and any recommendations emerging from the work will be made available here at a later date.

Introducing the commission

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.
