Colville Estate Phase 2C January 2021

Closed 31 Jan 2021

Opened 9 Jan 2021


Hackney is facing a severe housing shortage, with more than 3,000 families living in hostels and other temporary accommodation and thousands more on the waiting list for social housing. That’s why Hackney is building. 

As part of our plans to provide much-needed housing on Council-owned land, we’re proposing to build 935 homes on the Colville Estate, replacing the original 432 homes with brand new homes for all tenants, alongside additional new homes and wider improvements to the estate. Half of the homes will be for social rent and shared ownership, with the remaining being for outright sale to help pay for them.

We are proposing to make some changes to Phase 2C to ensure the new homes meet the latest fire safety regulations and energy efficiency standards, and to learn from the feedback from residents who have already moved to new homes on the estate. The new homes will be located on the sites of Rosemary House, Sillitoe House and the terrace of houses on Harvey Street. Phase 2C will also include the new community centre and an energy centre for the estate. 

We are keen to hear your thoughts on our plans - please review the information on the links below and complete the online survey by 31 January. The questions refer to page numbers in the consultation booklet below.
