Hackney London Borough Council is the local government authority for the London Borough of Hackney in Greater London, UK. It is one of 32 such London borough councils in the capital of London.
Five miles east of the City of London, Newham is bounded by the River Thames in the south, by the River Lea in the west, the River Roding in the east and Wanstead Flats in the north.
We are one of the UK’s most culturally vibrant and diverse areas. The borough is densely populated, with over 200,000 people living within eight square miles at the heart of London’s East End. The borough includes a number of London’s famous attractions including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Columbia Road Flower Market and Billingsgate Fish Market.
The London Borough of Waltham Forest is in the north-east of the capital and borders the boroughs of Hackney, Redbridge, Newham, Haringey, and Epping Forest in Essex to the north. The borough boasts huge geographic diversity. Urban, residential areas in the south of the borough contrast sharply with the wide open spaces of the marshland, reservoirs and forests in the north and west regions adjoining the Lea Valley.
As our plans for urban regeneration and economic revival come to fruition, our overriding priority is to ensure that all residents and communities within the borough are able to grasp the opportunities before them, fulfil their potential, share in the benefits and make Greenwich a place where people want to live, work, learn and visit.
