Don't miss out! Ridley Road 2020: Outdoor Film Screening and Planning Objection Workshop.

 

Join friends of #SaveRidleyRoad from 6:30pm Thursday, 22 October 2020 at the Eastern Curve Garden for a screening of "Ridley Road 2020: A Street Market Under Threat" - a moving half-hour documentary depicting the current threats to Ridley Road market and the community campaign to defend it from damaging gentrification.


Featuring many voices of Ridley Road, from traders and shoppers to community campaigners and Council representatives, the film brings the market to life and shows the unity that makes it what it is.

The outdoor film screening will start at 19:00. 

Afterwards there will be help available with how to write an objection to the planning application for re-development of the Ridley Road Shopping Village, and a Q&A with the filmmaker and others.


Hand-sanitiser will be provided, but please bring a mask.


IT'S CRUNCH TIME FOR THE RIDLEY ROAD SHOPPING VILLAGE. The developer's latest plans are available for public comment until 1 November. We need everyone to write an objection. You can find out how to write yours at https://www.saveridleyroad.com/write-hackney-council-a-letter-of-o

It only takes five minutes, but the heritage and future of Ridley Road is at stake. 


Hackney Council's Local Plan 2033 designates the whole of Ridley Road north side as a "development opportunity".
