Nearly 30 families are one step closer to genuinely affordable new homes after Hackney Council construction work to replace a disused boiler house got underway in Clapton Park. 

The 26 new homes in Pedro Street – half for social rent and half for shared ownership – include a mix of family-sized and smaller properties designed to meet local housing needs, with local people offered first dibs on moving into them. 

The project, part of the Council’s not-for-profit programme to build thousands of new homes itself across the borough, will also improve nearby public spaces to link the new properties to Gilpin Square. 

More than half of the new homes Hackney Council is building across the borough are for genuinely affordable social rent and shared ownership, paid for by the sale of some homes outright in the absence of government funding.

The new homes, which all have a balcony or terrace and access to a new shared garden, are due to be completed in 2022.

Since 2011, the Council has completed 981 new homes, with 54% for social rent, shared ownership and living rent.
