De Beauvoir Estate - Four sites for Council Housing

Closed 9 May 2019

Opened 2 May 2019


Nearly 13,000 households in Hackney are waiting for a new Council home, including 3,000 families living in temporary accommodation. That’s why Hackney is Building much-needed new Council homes for local people on the De Beauvoir Estate.

We’re proposing to build around 150 well-designed homes across the four sites shown on the map below as well as 900 square metres of non-residential spaces. We aim to deliver 35% of the new homes for social rent and 35% for shared ownership, with the remaining 30% for outright sale to pay for them.

Architects Henley Halebrown and Stephen Taylor Architects are working with
Hackney Council to design the proposals.

You can read more about why Hackney is building at De Beauvoir and about our early plans for more new homes and commercial space here.

To view the initial proposals for the four sites on the map below, please download the consultation boards here.

We welcome your thoughts on the initial designs. Please review all the information on the consultation boards before completing the online survey.
