Hackney’s population is set to soar by 43,000 over the next 10 years according to newly released government stats.
The population stood at 263,000 in 2014 – the last year for which figures are available – and is estimated to hit 306,000 by 2024, which means its headcount will be comparable with major cities in England.
Hackney has one of the 10 fastest growing populations out of any local authority in the country.
Office of National Statistics figures show the amount of people living in London overall is set to soar to more than nine million, a rise of 13.7 per cent, during the same period.
The growth across the boroughs is mainly due to immigration and a high birth rate outstripping those leaving London and the UK.
