Hackney’s Evening and Night-time Economy

Closed 17 Jul 2016

Opened 25 Apr 2016


We want to hear your views on Hackney in the evening (6pm to midnight) and night-time (midnight to 6am). This would include socialising in pubs, bars and clubs, restaurants, music venues, theatres, cinemas etc.

The growth of Hackney’s evening and night-time leisure economy has contributed to wider economic growth and to making Hackney a vibrant and fashionable place for people to live, work, visit and locate their businesses. It brings many benefits to the Borough, including employment and regeneration, but also brings negative impacts such as alcohol abuse and increased anti-social behaviour.

Why we are consulting

We are keen to hear the views of local residents as well as those using the evening and night-time economy. We would like to work together to balance the needs of our evening and night-time economy, taking into account the views and experiences of residents, businesses and visitors.

We want to effectively manage the growth of the evening and night-time economy as we know that these areas are also highly residential neighbourhoods.

Your feedback will be used to inform the development of future Licensing Policy for the Borough.
