July update

First reductions by the new government

The Tories and their Lib Dem partners have announced their first cuts in local government funding. Hackney loses £3.8 million immediately as follows –

Grant Loss
Department for Education Area Based Grant £2.072 million
Adult Social Services Area Based Grant £0.241 million
Working Neighbourhoods Fund £1.326 million
Preventing Extremism Grant £0.102 million
Home Office Area Based Grant £0.052 million
TOTAL £3.792 million

These are those they can do without needing budget approval or new legislation. More will follow after the emergency budget shortly.

Manor TRA

Oli attended their AGM on the 17th of June. Residents were pleased with youth activities planned for the area in the summer and felt there had been a recent reduction in ASB. They were exploring ways to make Amwell Court more green with new planting around the community centre.

Woodberry Down regeneration

Decanting has begun from Peak and Petherton and they are still on schedule to be demolished later this year. They are to be followed by Nichol and Needwood. A Compulsory Purchase Order is due to be made in July.
