Progress continues on final Colville Estate agreement

It’s been another six months of hard work from tenant representatives, Hackney Council and the Futures partnership to agree the final details of Colville Estate’s regeneration.

While you may have heard that other estate regeneration plans have had to go back to the drawing board, this is not the case with the Colville Estate. Negotiations remain firmly on track.

Hackney’s Deputy Mayor, Jamie Carswell, wrote to tenant representatives just this week assuring them of the Council’s commitment to a successful outcome in the final negotiations with the Futures partnership.

We are delighted with the Council’s continued hard work and support and are urging negotiators to redouble efforts towards that final agreement.

People have worked extremely hard to make this regeneration a reality and we’ll continue to work to ensure residents get the estate they need and deserve.
