For some of our Retirement Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, London Borough of Hackney, who can be contacted on 0208 356 2929.
This is a development of 20 one bed apartments with shared gardens and a residents’ lounge. Regular social activities take place, giving you an opportunity to get to know other residents. The site backs onto the green space of Haggerston Park, where pleasant walks can be taken. Nearby amenities include a market, church, mosque, supermarket and café. The buildings and grounds maintenance and repairs are all taken care of by your professional on-site manager. Should you need to access further help and support they will also be on hand with advice.
