More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Comments made so far:

I very much appreciate work done on Clapton Pond itself and am hoping the redevelopment of the Club/Cinema goes well. I am concerned about trying to make the area more 'tasteful' and would really hate to see shop fronts  without bright lights - it will crush the life out of the area and will not encourage diversity. Hackney is not about 'tasteful' or 'stylish'. I hope.

I think the neighbourhood plan should address how the neighbourhood sees itself in relation to areas beyond the neighbourhood, otherwise it has the danger of becoming an exercise in NIMBYism, worse still a very mean, inward looking set of desires.

Make sure your opinion is heard too.
