Parking fine: This £6.5m housing scheme, designed by London architect Pollard Thomas & Edwards, is inviting tenders from contractors. Islington & Shoreditch Housing Association has agreed with Hackney council to turn a derelict car park on the corner of the De Beauvoir estate into 72 homes. Work on the design-and-build scheme is expected to start by late summer and construction to be complete by the spring of 2004.
