Plans to create a public square off Shoreditch High Street as part of a major project known as Shoreditch Village have been given the green light by councillors.

Developer Brockton Capital, which bought into the scheme last year, is now set to build offices and retail units on the land, as well as put a street market on the pedestrianised space.

To do so, it will knock down one building in Anning Street and the back of two others in Shoreditch High Street, one of which is Grade-II listed.

The first phase of the Shoreditch Village scheme, which straddles the London Overground viaduct, saw the 10-storey Citizen M hotel built, along with eight flats and commercial buildings.

The plans were given approval by Hackney Council on Monday.
