HACKNEY COUNCIL

The UK’s first scheme banning the dirtiest vehicles from roads will be rolled out across areas of Shoreditch and Old Street in 10 days’ time.

Homeless and vulnerable people will be offered health checks at a festival in Finsbury Park next month.

Hackney Council has urged Transport for London to scrap a series of “unacceptable” cuts to bus services that would see the 48 shelved completely and several others scaled back.

The 48 could be cancelled and a string of other Hackney and Islington bus routes slashed in length and frequency under radical secret plans.

Extra security in Hackney’s streets over the Wireless weekend left Islington’s Finsbury Park community having to contend with hundreds of drunk, noisy festivalgoers, the council has said.

A four-year standoff over a 100-yard stretch of road will finally end when a missing piece of Cycle Superhighway 1 is built – in spring 2019.

Today (Thu) is the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS. It is one of the UK’s proudest achievements and, I am pleased to add, was made possible by a Labour government, writes Cllr Osh Gantly.

Old Street roundabout could soon be the site of the UK’s second tallest building – or a copy of Stonehenge.

It is not true that police chasing mopeds must stop if the riders remove their helmets, a top cop has insisted.

Clubbers and campaigners are preparing for another dance-off with Hackney Council over plans to bring in a midnight curfew for all new venues and clamp down further on openings in Shoreditch.

Cheeky councillors from Hackney were trying to grab a bit of Islington.

Baroness Hussein-Ece of Highbury was the first Turkish-Cypriot woman to be elected to public office in the UK. The Lib Dem equalities spokeswoman tells the Gazette what makes her tick.

This council administration is committed to making Islington a fairer place for all, writes Cllr Claudia Webbe, environment and transport boss, Islington Council.

Christmas can be a difficult time for care leavers, says Lemn Sissay. That’s why he decided to start organising Christmas dinners for them
