Islington press cover Plan for Holloway initiative

Thursday, 4 May 2017

The latest issue of the Islington Tribune has reported on the launch of our online survey on the future of the former Holloway prison site in Islington. In addition, the lead letter on page 11 of this week's the Islington Gazette is from local resident Chris Hignett who mentions the Centre's recently published needs analysis of Islington. Chris encourages readers to visit the Community Plan for Holloway site and fill in the survey.

This follows coverage in the Evening Standard and the Islington Gazette last week, as well as an interview by London Live TV of our Deputy Director, Will McMahon, about the survey, and two local residents concerned about the site.

The report in the Islington Tribune also highlighted research we carried out in March which found that in just six months the Ministry of Justice spent £137,000 on utility bills for the closed prison.

The survey is part of our two-year community engagement project, Justice Matters: A community plan for Holloway, where we're working with local people and community groups to put forward a positive vision for the site.
