Plans Approved

London Borough of Hackney's virtual Planning Committee has approved plans last week for the redevelopment of the New Era Estate, reports CMA Planning.

The Allies and Morrison designed scheme will create 199 new affordable rented homes for key workers and the existing New Era community, including 344m2 of retail space in buildings up to 14 storeys in height. The redevelopment was done in consultation with existing tenants, with a ballot of residents showing 91% in support of the plans.

Olivia Harris, CEO of Dolphin Living, commented: "We are delighted with Hackney Council’s decision to grant us planning permission. It not only allows us to continue to provide high quality, affordable homes to London’s key workers close to their places of work but it also guarantees the future of the New Era Estate and the community that lives there. We will build spacious, well-designed homes that will ensure existing and future tenants can live comfortably in their homes for many years to come."

Lindsay Garret, Chair of the New Era Estate Tenants Association, added: "As a long term resident of the New Era Estate, Chair of the Tenants Association, and a key worker, I am delighted at yesterday’s decision to approve the planning application by Dolphin Living to deliver 199 homes and retail space in the New Era Estate, and secure the long term future of our community. Having homes that we can afford in a place we have lived and worked in for generations is hugely important to us."

Dolphin Living provides homes in central London at below-market rents to allow working Londoners on modest incomes to live in central boroughs close to their places of work.

Whilst the construction is underway, the current residents will live in homes purchased by Dolphin Living in nearby Kingsland Road.
