Have your say on our local plan
If you're a Hackney resident, you can help shape the future of the borough by having your say on our local plan - a blueprint for Hackney's development up to 2033.
The local plan - known as LP33 - sets out a series of planning policies to guide and manage development and investment in the borough. It will help ensure development serves the needs of the borough and will allow the Council and local people to influence it.
We apply regional and national planning policies and guidance when assessing and determining planning applications and when promoting development proposals across the borough.

Self-build and custom housebuilding

Hackney community infrastructure levy
The Council is now charging a local community infrastructure levy (CIL) in addition to the Mayoral CIL on all applicable development located in Hackney.
