Report from Mayor Philip Glanville – June-July 2017

Welcome to my June to July Mayor’s Report. 

Dear Member,

Welcome to my June to July Mayor’s Report.

Over the past month myself and my colleagues have been continuing to respond to the challenges coming out of the tragedy at Grenfell Tower. Hackney continues to be involved in the London Local Government response, and as outlined last month we are doing all we can to keep residents in Hackney safe. We did not use the type of cladding installed at Grenfell, but we are testing all the other types we have and will publishing a full report shortly. In the meantime we continue to communicate with residents and have now started to publish our FRAs online. I’d like to thank Cllr McKenzie for his work in this area.

As I outline below we have been working closely with the community, police and IPCC responding to the death of Rashan Charles early on Saturday morning. Our sympathies are of course with his family and friends, there is more information below on the IPCC process and a statement from Caroline and I.

We continue to be a Campaigning Labour Council on issues such as education funding, the role of local authorities in schools, police numbers and resources, clean energy and improving the private rented sector – more information can be found below.

This week I was very pleased to join Cllr Williams at the launch of the Hackney 100 paid work experience programme. I was also very proud to walk with over 150 councillors, staff, residents and organisations as part of the London Pride parade including Hackney based Project Indigo and Young Hackney LGBTQI+ forum.

Young people from across Hackney performed at the Barbican this month and also came 4th in the London Youth – a testament to the breadth of talent in the borough and the wide-ranging support and investment we make as a Labour Council.

Best wishes,
