Plans have been revealed for the first new homes under the town hall’s “innovative” scheme to transform run-down garages and disused council land into housing.

The Housing Supply Programme aims to build hundreds of new homes for Hackney people across 14 sites, with 70 per cent for social rent or shared ownership.

And on Friday planning permission was submitted for the first batch – 39 homes on two sites in Clapton.

The first would see a new street with 11 homes – five for social rent and the remainder for shared ownership – replacing empty garages at Mandeville Street.

And in Pedro Street, 28 homes could replace a disused boiler house in Gilpin Square, with 13 for social rent and 15 for shared ownership.

Hackney mayor Phil Glanville said the council was doing all it could to provide homes for the 13,000 households on the waiting list and 3,000 in temporary accommodation.

He said: “These smaller sites have given us the opportunity to work with some fantastic architects who, in collaboration with the local community, have come up with designs that both provide high quality, genuinely affordable homes and make a fantastic contribution to their neighbourhoods.”
