A decision is set to be made on the controversial luxury housing development on site of the old bingo hall in Hackney Road.

The plans were deferred in April by councillors who felt the design needed more work, much to the delight of campaigners who are trying to stop the project.

But owners Hackney Property Holdings (HPH), who bought the site for £4.5million in 2014, are back with more detail as required.

A decision will be made on Monday night.
