This public meeting will bring together local residents, community groups, local councillors and the local MP, Jeremy Corbyn to discuss the possible future uses for the Holloway prison site.

About this event

HMP Holloway closed in summer 2016 and sits on a large area of public land in Islington, one of the most densely populated boroughs in the capital with some of the highest housing costs.

The purpose of the meeting is to:

  • to raise local awareness that the site is up for sale.
  • begin a discussion with local residents about the prison's closure and how the land might be used. 
  • discuss possibilities for council housing and services on the site.
  • introduce the Justice Matters for Holloway project to develop a community plan for the future use of the prison site.

You can download a flyer for the event.

Speakers

  • Jeremy Corbyn MP
  • Kat Fletcher, Islington Councillor
  • Eileen Short, Housing campaigner
  • Kate Paradine, Women in Prison
