To help address the shortage of affordable housing in London we’re drawing up some proposals to develop additional homes on our estate at Northwold in Hackney, which was originally built in the 1960s.

Our proposals are at a very early stage – we want to explore the potential for providing new homes through pre-application discussions with the local council and we’re keen for residents to have a say in this.

We’ll have a thorough and full consultation process to take residents’ views into consideration, and to hear any issues or concerns they, or members of the local community, may have. We’re committed to involving them in our proposals and it’s important to stress that no definite plans have been made.

Our commitment to residents

Our proposals will deliver a number of benefits to current and future residents of Northwold estate, including potentially providing new homes on the estate and improving communal areas, landscaping and security.

Involving our residents

We’re really keen to hear our residents’ views on the proposals and to answer any questions. We’ll keep them informed of progress through newsletters, letters and a range of events.

To help the consultation process, we’ve employed an independent community engagement organisation called Newman Francis. They have lots of experience in helping communities get involved in these kinds of decisions.

We’ll keep this page updated with all the latest information as it becomes available. You can read our frequently asked questions here.
