Judith joined Hackney Council’s Regeneration Design Advisory Group

Judith Loesing, Director at East, was chosen to be part of Hackney Council’s influential Regeneration Design Advisory Group (RDAG) over the next four years.

Experts in the fields of architecture, urban design, landscape or public realm, sustainable development, construction delivery and regeneration with ‘awareness and knowledge of the borough’ were sought to help advise on the east London local authority’s future regeneration projects in November last year.

Ken Rorrison, head of regeneration strategic design at Hackney Council, said: ‘Since we launched our in-house delivery programme 10 years ago, we’ve proven that building the genuinely affordable council homes our borough needs doesn’t have to mean compromising on good design. ‘This group has a track record of designing and informing high-quality social housing in Hackney and across London, but also a wider expertise in areas of sustainability and creating non-residential spaces that will contribute towards the council’s ambitions for a more inclusive economy and a green recovery from the pandemic.’
