Hackney residents are being asked to nominate their favourite local landmarks for the council’s heritage list – so they can be considered in future planning decisions.
The current list was collected five years ago, and includes 470 objects and buildings such as a wooden postbox in Stoke Newington, Dalston’s historic peace mural and the Shacklewell Lane Mosque.
Now the council is calling on residents to help it update the miscellany.
Heritage champion Cllr Clare Potter said: “The local list is a fantastic way to promote local heritage and encourage the preservation of Hackney’s distinct character when planning is being considered.
“I would encourage all of our residents to get involved and nominate the buildings and landmarks you think should be added to the local list.”
Any nominations must have either historical, architectural or environmental significance, or artistic merit.
Local heritage group The Hackney Society has penned a handy guide for anyone thinking of putting forward a landmark.
Nomination forms must be sent to the council’s conservation team by Friday 26 January 2018.
