Gentrification: you ask the questions

Hackney Citizen Digital Debate Mayoral Election 2010

Tom Whitemore 001

What do the candidates propose to do to stop the gentrification of Hackney, to prevent it becoming another Islington? It’s all very well and good to have investment in Hackney, but what are the candidates’ plans to retain the individual character of the borough? asks Tom Whitemore

Please remember that candidates may not be able to respond to questions straightaway.

Questions will be open for answers and comments online 10am – 10pm Thursday 29 April.

From Friday 29 April they will be open 11-2pm and 8-11pm daily.
