New council homes for Lincoln Court - March 2021

Closed 5 Apr 2021

Opened 4 Mar 2021


Hackney is facing a severe housing shortage, with more than 3,000 families living in hostels and other temporary accommodation - some of more than 13,000 families on our housing waiting list. 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 80-90 homes at Lincoln Court.

We are keen to hear your thoughts on our plans - please review the information in the documents below and complete the online survey below.
