Local people to discuss future of Holloway prison site

Date: 
Thursday, 15 February, 2018

On Friday 2nd March Community Plan for Holloway, a project of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, is holding a public meeting in Islington to discuss the future of the Holloway prison site. It will be an opportunity for local people to share their thoughts on the community vision that we have produced for the site. The community vision is based on over 900 responses we received from local people and organisations to the Community Plan for Holloway survey in 2017.

There will be a few short introductions from representatives of local community organisations, followed by lots of time for people to discuss what they would like to see happen to the site, and how to make sure what the community wants is heard loud and clear when planning decisions are made. 

Speakers include:

  • Jeremy Corbyn, MP for Islington North
  • Niki Gibbs, Reclaim Holloway
  • Alexandra Lilley, Islington Churches
  • Glyn Robbins, Islington Unite Housing and Axe the Housing Act

The event will be held at St George's Church, Crayford Road, Tufnell Park N7 0ND between 7pm and 8.30pm on Friday 2nd March. It is open to everyone who is concerned about what happens to the former prison site.
