Hackney residents & businesses becoming connected
A commitment has been made to provide Hackney with good internet connectivity. The Council wants to make good on this commitment.
Mayor Philip Glanville said, ‘The council has a significant place-shaping role. Working in partnership with the commercial sector and other public sector partners to deliver a thriving and competitive market for digital connectivity in the borough that will meet residents’ and businesses needs now and in the future.”
They are discussing ways to provide free or subsidised internet to properties available for start up businesses, as well as the boroughs markets. The aim will be to give everybody a chance to keep up to speed with the world as we know it.
Regeneration brings investment & a better quality of life to Hackney
Hopefully this high speed internet will keep everyone current with changes in the area, which has been growing and regenerating at a phenomenal rate. Housing estates have been regenerated. New properties have been built. Improved schools and transport links have brought a better quality of life to residents of Hackney.
It has had great investment in all areas of development, with a 40% increase in business growth since 2010 including in the technology & hospitality sectors. There have been public and private developments throughout the borough providing plenty of opportunities for the community to grow and thrive. This creative hub has flourished and there are many artistic spaces now blooming. Old railway arches have been redeveloped to be used by artists and new businesses.
The area has become a hub of activity and with plenty of growth still to come is a great place to invest.
