Clissold Quarter Property Development

Clissold Quarter in Green Lanes, Stoke Newington, is a new development featuring 273 flats and units. Under Section 106 obligations, London Borough of Hackney required the developers of Clissold Quarter to include a car share scheme as part of their transport plan.


  • Development type: New development of 273 flats
  • Number of car club vehicles: 310 Minis and BMWs across North East London
  • Parking spaces per unit: The development is parking free zone
  • Developer: Higgins Homes
  • Local authority: London Borough of Hackney
  • Car club: DriveNow

There are usually cars available within a 5 minute walk of the development. The cars can be rented spontaneously through the DriveNow app or by swiping a customer card. Cars can also be reserved for free, 15 minutes in advance. The user does not have to return the car to a designated bay, instead they can leave the car in any on-street resident or pay and display parking bay within the business area.

Members pay a flat fee with prices including petrol, parking, insurance and tax.

New Clissold Quarter residents are introduced to DriveNow through a welcome pack which includes information on how to register, DriveNow overview and business area information. All residents are offered a lifetime membership and a number of free driving minutes.

Car clubs provide access to pay-as-you-go vehicles, available 24/7. This rapidly growing alternative to car ownership has proved its worth in new developments, reducing their carbon footprint and reducing their parking space requirements.
