The council is in the early stages of preparing a strategy to improve the area in the north-west corner of the borough and says it would like know what people think.
Cllr Guy Nicholson, Hackney Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, said, “The Manor House masterplan provides a key opportunity to shape a new neighbourhood centre around business and commerce.
“The Woodberry Down regeneration scheme, Finsbury Park and the access to public transport around Manor House make this a unique opportunity for local businesses and the borough.
“These community events provide residents and businesses the chance to feed their ideas into the development of the new neighbourhood.”
The council says the masterplan is needed to maximise the opportunities that the Woodberry Down regeneration scheme will bring to the area.
The draft masterplan aims to create a strong and distinctive place around the Manor House tube station. The council says that this could be achieved by improving the environment around the public transport facilities, promoting a mix of employment, retail and residential uses, and encouraging walking and cycling.
The council is holding two community events where you can find out more:
