WHAT KIND OF SPACE DOES THE COMMUNITY NEED?
A new project is exploring the local community's ideas, to inspire designs for a temporary development on an empty plot of land near Hackney Wick.
The purpose of the project is to research the needs of the local community, and explore how the site could be used creatively to answer local demand for workspace, employment, education, cultural and community use.
This is a chance for anyone in the community to share their ideas and have their say. Take part to help guide the project, and ensure that the designs for the space can offer new opportunities for independent businesses, community organisations and local people.

The site in question is Clarnico Quay, a temporarily vacant space next to the Copper Box Arena at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Previously the site of the Clarnico sweet factory, it is located immediately across the River Lea canal from Hackney Wick station.
The 6,110 square metre site is part of the long term development plans at East Wick & Sweetwater, and may be made available for a temporary use for 5 years.
