Hackney Greens have been working for the last four years to prepare for the Council elections on 5th May 2022 We have been working hard in the community, listening to people's needs and concerns and seeking to help resolve problems wherever possible.
In 2018 we were just 21 and 90 votes away from winning seats in the two areas that we are targeting – and we know this will be the year we break through onto the Council.
Green voices on the Council will provide robust opposition on critical issues where people need to come first, challenging Hackney Council to take more ambitious local action and create a prosperous sustainable future for all. Elected Greens around the country are making real differences to their communities, and it only takes a few Green councillors for change to happen.
Our Plan For Hackney
We have released a comprehensive plan for a Fairer, Greener Hackney. Read it now (PDF).
It has been developed from conversations with residents and from proposals put forward by local community groups. We have listened to and respected residents as experts in their lives and communities.

Local Councillor Elections
Hackney Green Party are once again standing candidates for all 57 seats on Hackney Council. With more candidates than the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats combined, Greens are the real opposition to the Labour-dominated Council.
Zoë Garbett, candidate for Dalston and for Mayor of Hackney, said: “I’m delighted to be standing alongside 56 other brilliant candidates who are giving every resident in Hackney the opportunity to vote Green this May. As the borough’s second largest party by vote share in the last local elections, we know that voters see us as the alternative to Labour’s complacent and unaccountable control of the Council.”
