Yeah I know it’s hard to think about anything apart from finding a shady tree and an iced coffee in this heat, but Hackney Council is asking for comments on the terraces in Dalston Lane. And the deadline is next Thursday (July 9).
Open Dalston has a lot of information about the terraces on their website here

then email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
For those who want the buildings restored, this is the time to let the council know. Restoration is a possibility, given that Hackney Council designated the site as falling within a conservation area after selling them to an off-shore developer (the whole affair makes some interesting reading on the Open Dalston website, too), so if it is important to you that they are restored then write to the council and let them know.
Who knows how much it will achieve? But it’s worth a try. And do forward this to anyone you think might be interested.
