Soc&Env: Health and wellbeing impacts road traffic injuries and deaths

Road traffic injuries and deaths are a major (but rare) health impact of local transport systems. As well as being a very real actual risk, it has been found that the fear of road traffic injuries has health impacts of its own. Fear of injury is the main reason people give for not cycling and …

Soc&Env: Health and wellbeing impacts of active travel

Soc&Env: Health and wellbeing impacts of traffic congestion, emissions and noise

The growth in population, housing and employment, both within the local area and in neighbouring boroughs, has obvious implications for transport demand and for congestion on Hackney and the City’s busy transport network.

Soc&Env: Comparisons in housing conditions with other areas and over time

As mentioned previously, households in Hackney experience some of the highest levels of overcrowding in the country, and the City is also adversely affected (see the Local Data section on Housing Conditions). A good source of comparison data for other health risks associated with housing conditions is the Public Health Outcomes Framework.  This provides comparable …

Soc&Env: Local inequalities data on housing by location

Figure 8 shows that, on the whole, housing deprivation is relatively evenly spread throughout Hackney, but with relatively lower levels in some parts of the north and west of the borough (around De Beauvoir and Stoke Newington), demonstrating localised inequalities relating to housing.  In the 2014 Hackney housing needs survey, however, residents in north east …

Soc&Env: Local inequalities data on housing for vulnerable groups

Among rough sleepers, it is worth noting that 10 of those identified in Hackney in 2015/16 had been in the armed forces, six had been in care and 46 had been in prison (although this may not have been immediately prior to rough sleeping). For the City over the same period, 23 rough sleepers had …
