Landmark plans to build 400 modern, high-quality homes to replace derelict land on a Clapton housing estate are set to be submitted by Hackney Council as part of its ambitious regeneration programme.

The proposals for the Nightingale Estate would see a two-hectare area of vacant land transformed into a mix of homes for social rent, shared ownership and private sale following years of detailed consultation with local residents.

Marking the final stage of the regeneration of the estate, the £200 million scheme would join more than 300 affordable homes already built by award-winning housing association Southern Housing Trust – along with nearly 400 more refurbished Council homes.
