Victoria Park council homes given the go-ahead
Plans to build new 15 new council homes near Victoria Park were given the green light at a council planning committee.
The three- and four-storey scheme of one to four bedroom flats in King Edward’s Road includes 17 homes for private sale to help pay for the development.
Cllr Philip Glanville, cabinet member for Hackney Homes and estates regeneration, said: “This is another step forward in our commitment to provide new, modern Council homes for residents across the borough, and amid highly challenging financial circumstances.”
In accordance with Greater London Authority and local requirements, it is a car-free development, meaning there will be no other car parking spaces apart from two disabled spaces, and no eligibility for parking permits in neighbouring streets.
Work is expected to start on site early next year, with the homes for social renting complete by March 2015 and those for sale shortly afterwards.
