Community Plan for Holloway open day a huge success

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Community Plan for Holloway open day at St George’s Church, Crayford Road on Saturday 30 September.

More than 150 people stopped by to discuss the future of the Holloway prison site and share ideas for how the land should be developed.

Local MP, Jeremy Corbyn, joined us for a couple of hours and spoke of the huge potential to create affordable housing at the Holloway site.

Holloway redevelopment plan a 'public scandal'

Plans to replace Holloway prison with expensive housing, unaffordable to most Londoners, have drawn criticism. It is not the first controversy to have dogged the future of the Holloway site.

The current prison was built in the 1970s and 1980s, replacing the original nineteenth century prison. The prison is in the Islington North Constituency, represented by the Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn.
