In Clapton Park we’re making the most of underused council land at 3 locations, replacing unwanted eyesores and underused space to build 50 much-needed new homes – 90% of which will be for social rent or shared ownership.
The homes are being built to replace the old boiler house at Pedro Street and underused garages and car parking at both Mandeville Street and Daubeney Road.
At Mandeville Street, we are transforming empty garages into 11 new homes, including:
- five social rent homes for local residents in housing need
- six homes for shared ownership for people living or working in Hackney who can’t afford to buy outright but won’t be prioritised for social housing
We’ve also rethought the street in order to link the neighbourhood with surrounding areas and make the previously dark passage feel safer, open and greener. The new mews will not only provide better access for cyclists and pedestrians but also include new trees, landscaping and planting to create a welcoming environment.
At Daubeney Road, we are transforming an underused carpark into 11 new homes, including:
- seven social rent homes for local residents in housing need
- four sold outright to help pay for the project in the absence of sufficient government funding
The outright sale homes will be sold and marketed to local residents by our in-house sales team, Hackney Sales.
Similarly to Mandeville Street, our plans for Daubeney Road include soft landscaping throughout, trees and a clear link between Redwald Road.
At Pedro Street, we are replacing the old boiler house with 26 much-needed new homes, including:
- 13 social rent homes for local residents in housing need
- 13 homes for shared ownership for people living or working in Hackney who can’t afford to buy outright but won’t be prioritised for social housing
We’ve included soft landscaping throughout the plans while retaining as many existing trees as possible, transforming the streets surrounding the new homes. We’re also improving the space between Pedro Street and Gilpin Square with new paving and walkways.
