Do you think the websites and information provided is accessible and easy to understand?

Neutral

If not, could you share how we can make it more accessible?

In breaking the exercised own by zones, and also by topics, for thoroughness, navigation is complicated. Some illustrations would benefit from more information such as Northpoint, road names. Easy to criticise; I am not sure immediate understanding can be possible.

Do you think we have understood and represented most of the issues in this consultation?

Mostly agree

If not, could you share what we have missed?

You have represented what matters, and been 'realistic'. It would be good to push harder for public housing, and greening.

What did you think of our approach to engagement during the consultation? Did you particularly like/ dislike anything?

I am unsure of the scope. I was grateful for the tour on 29.9.2021 which was well done; helpful and informative.

So many sections. The proposal itself is far longer than it needs to be because it is so repetitive.

I think largely the Plan is couched in terms which hide its real results and cloak them in nice sounding phrases.

I could not access the consultation on my ipad. Eventually I tried it on my laptop and it worked.

We do not think the online consultation is working. The evidence for this is the very low number of responses. On 6th August after the consultation had been open for over six weeks, three areas had no responses (Vision & Objectives for Dalston; Workspace, Employment and Retail: Opportunity Sites in Dalston). The remaining nine areas had between 1 and 8 responses each. This includes areas of huge local interest such as Ridley Road Market where there is an active campaign that even under Covid restrictions got around 100 people to their outdoor events, and both transport and housing which have generated popular grassroots action across Hackney in the past year. Morning Lane People’s Space got 1384 responses to a consultation carried out over a similar time period of two months last autumn. We feel that Hackney Council can learn from what made our consultation accessible: Asking open questions and ones that people don’t feel they need to read a long technical document before replying to and don’t require people to order lists of objectives written in policyspeak. Working online and offline via street stalls and door-to-door leafleting - the offline sample was more representative of Hackney in terms of age, race and social class. Building trust within the community so that people are willing to share their views. Working with local groups to share the consultation including, for example, speaking at a local church and talking to contacts in Tenants and Residents Associations. One thing that would make it easier for people to respond and that could encourage public dialogue about the Dalston Plan would be to show the comments that have been submitted and allow people to agree or disagree with them. Further, we do not think that the organisers have understood and represented all the issues in this consultation. Two key missing ones which came up often in response to the open questions in our own survey are: gentrification, and the need for council and social housing (not ‘affordable’ or ‘genuinely affordable’ housing). In reporting back on the outcomes of earlier consultations, why is there no breakdown of how many people took part by social class, race, gender and age or any analysis of their different perspectives? We found that views on Hackney planning differ significantly by class and race.

It'd be simpler if you answer each section in sequence without having to remember which you've commented on already!
