Results updated 8 Apr 2024

The Hoxton Mini-Fair is coming to Hoxton Street Market on Saturday 13th April. Join us to celebrate the local organisations and the community and cultural life of Hoxton. We will be exhibiting ideas for improvements to enhance Hoxton’s public realm and its network of community and cultural spaces.

The Hoxton ‘project bank’ will be on display, containing both small and big ideas for ways to improve your local area, and there will be another opportunity to have your say on these emerging ideas.

Take part in family friendly and free activities from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 13 April at Hoxton Street Market.

Hoxton Co-Design Update:

The second Hoxton community co-design workshop took place on 14th March at the Ivy Street Family Centre. The workshop focused on prioritising improvements for Hoxton’s public realm and its network of community and cultural spaces and was attended by 45 people, including local residents and students, leaders from local organisations and representatives from the Council including Hackney's Regeneration, Markets and Culture teams.

What's Next

Following on from all the engagement to date, we are developing more detail for the shortlisted proposals. These designs will be displayed publicly on Saturday 13th April as part of the Hoxton Mini Fair. This will be an opportunity to gather more community feedback before a first selection of smaller projects are adopted by Hackney's Streetscene for delivery between June 2024 and March 2025.


Erect Architecture have been appointed by the London Borough of Hackney to work alongside the local communities of Hoxton Street to develop ideas for improving the public space along the street and the routes that connect it to Pitfield Street and Kingsland Road. 

As part of this, Erect Architecture will map social and cultural spaces within Hoxton to build a picture of the connections which exist between organisations, community groups and local businesses. Through this process, we hope to represent the existing strengths of this network of spaces and identify any gaps which could be supported through improved facilities and public realm. 

The following survey is aimed at understanding the way businesses operate in the area and how they support the local community. We greatly appreciate your time in completing the questionnaire and contributing your voice to the ideas for making Hoxton work well for local businesses and the communities they serve.
