Masterplan & Context

The story so far

Outline planning consent for the Hackney Wick Masterplan was granted in 2017 by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC).

The Masterplan area was previously identified as the centre of one of London’s first Creative Enterprise Zones, because of the independent industry, makers, artists, and creative businesses that are unique to the Hackney Wick area.

The purpose of the Masterplan is to support existing and emerging communities while offering better connections to the new communities of Eastwick and Sweetwater to the east. It will also create new and improved public spaces around these new connections and heritage areas.

The Masterplan will deliver:

1,500 new homes

75,000 sqm of arts and business space

30,000 sqm employment space (ClassB1a, B1c)

4,500 sqm retail uses (Class A1-A4)

2,300 community space (Class D1/D2)

24,000 sqm public realm, open space and associated vehicular access

Project timeline

The proposals we are putting forward represent the next essential piece of the puzzle to complete the Hackney Wick Masterplan.
