Hackney in £25m public revamp

  • Comment

Hackney council in east London is set to overhaul both of its Grade II-listed town hall buildings as part of a £25 million project to improve public access to local services.

Many of the council's public buildings have been neglected for decades and the latest scheme would revamp the Art Deco town hall in Mare Street and the much-loved assembly rooms in Stoke Newington.

Both building projects have been given the go-ahead, despite the council's ongoing legal wrangle regarding the design of Stephen Hodder's Clissold Leisure Centre.

A council spokesman said: 'The scheme will be very carefully project managed. It has been 10 years since Clissold was commissioned but there are lessons to be learnt.'
