Consultation for this project has been completed. this page is informational only.

What we’re doing

Since 2011, Hackney has led the way in building new council homes. Our innovative, in-house building programme is now followed by other councils across London and the UK. So far this has delivered more than 1,000 new homes, prioritising council homes for social rent.

Bridge House and Marian Court is one of Hackney’s biggest regeneration projects, involving the full redevelopment of the estate to replace properties that didn’t meet modern standards with hundreds of high-quality new Council homes.

Why we’re doing it

The original homes at Bridge House and Marian Court were outdated homes that were uneconomical to refurbish. We wanted to provide better homes meeting modern standards for the residents who lived there, alongside additional new homes to meet the need in the area.

We’re redeveloping the estate into new homes including:

  • Social rent homes for returning residents and local residents in housing need
  • 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
  • Hackney Living Rent homes aimed at private renters with rents capped at a third of local incomes homes sold outright to help pay for the project in the absence of sufficient government funding.

How we’re doing it

The Bridge House and Marian Court regeneration is being delivered in three phases:

  • Brooklime House and Chervil House – The first phase of the project, Brooklime House and Chervil House, was completed in 2013 and replaced the former garages with 20 homes for social rent and 20 homes for shared ownership.
  • Bridge House  – The second phase of the project, Bridge House, was completed in 2020. This phase included 28 homes for social rent, 39 homes for shared ownership and Hackney’s first ever Hackney Living Rent homes – aimed at private renters with rents set at a third of local incomes.
  • Marian Court –  The third phase, Marian Court, received planning permission in June 2018. We’re now looking to update the designs to meet the latest building regulations and design and sustainability standards before building work starts.
