This is the website for the campaign to establish a Community Council for London Fields.

Broadway Market Boe and Irony

As residents of the London Fields and Broadway Market area, we love where we live and we want to see it get better. We recognise, however, that there are some severe problems with the London Fields area:

  • A general feeling of remoteness from the decisions being made.
  • Development pressures, especially on the East side of London Fields, which people feel that they have little control over.
  • London Fields becoming the “coolest” destination with all the problems that that brings with it.
  • The disaffection of some young people and the lack of positive activities for them.
  • A lack of service on some of the Estates.

We think a Community Council would be the best way to address some of these issues and get the best for the area. If you agree then sign the petition and get your friends to as well.

    I live over in Homerton but I really support this. I think such a community council could provide an amazing opportunity the bridgethe disjunction between the existing residents in hackney and the new arriving population to great benefit for all.

    I’m a reporter at the Guardian, where I’m working on an article about new efforts to establish community councils and the example of the Queens Park initiative (as well as your own).
    Would it be possible to chat to someone about your own plans? I’m available any time this evening or tomorrow

    Hi My name is Mohammad Faizal and I live on Warburton Estate. This is a great idea as London Fields currently does not have an official platform to voice our opinions on various issues. I’m behind this :-)

    I’ve been living in London Fields for the past few years but have been
    living abroad recently. I am back now and would be really interested in
    getting involved with this. It would be great if you could let me know how
    best to do that.

    Many thanks,
