The regeneration of Hackney – one of Britain’s highest-profile urban renewals in recent decades – is the focus of a new in-depth report to be launched by Tech City UK and Hackney Council.

The report, Promoting Enterprise and Regeneration, is the first in Tech City UK’s “best practice series” and examines the role played by the tech community, businesses and Hackney Council in changing the way the area is perceived and attracting investors.

Its authors believe other councils in Britain will benefit from this “blueprint for success”.

To mark the launch, a free event runs on June 21 in Shoreditch.

Tech firms, people who live in Hackney and workers from other councils are all welcome. The day includes panel discussions, practical tips and the opportunity to meet those behind the report. Some of the businesses involved in creating Tech City UK will also be there.
