The GLA’s Tom Copley and Mayor of Hackney Philip Glanville, join GLA and Hackney Council colleagues for tour of Countryside Partnerships Quartet scheme in North London
We recently welcomed Tom Copley, GLA Deputy Mayor for Housing and Regeneration, and the Mayor of Hackney Philip Glanville, to our Quartet scheme in the north London district of Clapton Common, alongside several of their colleagues from the GLA and Hackney Council.
The visit to Quartet formed part of the local council’s housing tour of Hackney, which was organised for the Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, Tom Copley, who oversees the Mayor of London’s two social rent and shared ownership programmes, including: ‘Building Council Homes for Londoners’ – the first-ever City Hall initiative dedicated to council homebuilding.
Launched in 2020, Quartet forms part of the Tower Court regeneration programme led by Hackney Council. Delivered over four phases, the development comprises 132 new one, two and three-bedroom homes, of which 80 are private and 52 are affordable homes, successfully contributing to much-needed housing in the area.
