Plans for 400 homes to replace derelict land on a Clapton housing estate are set to be submitted by Hackney Council as part of its regeneration programme.

The £200million proposals for the Nightingale Estate would see a two-hectare area of vacant land transformed into a mix of homes for social rent, shared ownership and private sale.

It will mark the final stage of the estate’s regeneration, which has seen more than 300 affordable homes built, with 400 more refurbished.

Cllr Philip Glanville, housing boss and deputy mayor, said: “We’ve worked closely with local people for the last few years to put their ambitions at the heart of our designs – including providing homes for social rent – and I’m pleased so many residents have backed these plans.

“I’m proud that Hackney is building more social housing than any other borough in London, and money from some of the homes for outright sale at this development will help pay for new council housing elsewhere in our borough.
