SUSD Ltd. was appointed as agent by Upper Clapton Ltd. in December 2013 to provide planning advice and architectural proposals for the redevelopment of the land and buildings on the North East side of Upper Clapton Road. The applicant acquired the freehold interest in the property in 2013.
The proposed residential development includes 89% family housing units. The demographic of Hackney’s population creates a greater requirement for family sized accommodation (3 bed or larger) than most other London boroughs. The provision of high quality new housing which meets current and future needs is a key priority of Hackney’s Sustainable Community Strategy (SCS), emerging Housing Strategy 2010 -2015 and a key requirement of the London Plan.
Due for completion in 2017, the new homes are to be generous and more spacious than the standards of the Mayor’s London Housing Design Guide.
