In February 2015, LLDC began consultation on their plans to deliver a new neighbourhood centre at Hackney Wick. The Legacy Corporation’s vision for Hackney Wick is to create a neighbourhood centre with a new mix of uses that still feels like Hackney Wick and keeps its local heritage and character, whilst supporting the needs of the existing and future creative, residential and business communities.

Create a new neighbourhood centre for use by the existing communities and new development in Hackney Wick and Fish Island, East Wick, Sweetwater and Here East.
Ensure a range of uses are provided within the centre to meet local needs, including employment space, shops, community facilities and homes.
Improve walking and cycling routes within Hackney Wick and to the surrounding existing and new neighbourhoods, and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Provide new safe and accessible routes and improved public spaces, with better access to the canal edge
Respect and enhance the heritage and character of the conservation area.
Provide a range of high quality, well designed and sustainability buildings including workspaces, which support existing businesses and make sure there is no overall loss of employment space.
