On Saturday 23rd September the Islington Liberal Democrats will be encouraging residents to provide their views on the development of the historic Holloway Prison site.
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) closed Holloway Prison in 2016 and is looking to sell the site to a developer soon. This is an important site with local historical significance and it is important that its future development meets local priorities. Islington council has released planning guidance known as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). They are looking for feedback on this draft guidance, which will be used alongside relevant planning policies to help make a decision on any future planning applications relating to the site.
The Islington Liberal Democrats will have a campaign stall outside the Nags Head Centre, 402 Holloway Road, N7 6PS – Saturday 23rd September, 10:00 – 14:00. We will be encouraging Islington residents to engage with the consultation process and share their visions for the future of the site.
The future of the Holloway Prison site is an extremely important and high profile issue that resonates with people, not only across Islington but nationally. It is crucial that the Liberal Democrats take a lead in campaigning for the development to serve the interests of the local community. You can get involved by:
1) Joining us on the campaign stall on 23rd September. We will be handing out fliers and talking to local residents about what they would like to be part of the site development.
2) Getting in touch with me directly at [email protected]. Please feel free to email me directly to provide your views on the consultation, or share your campaign ideas to increase the impact and visibility of the Liberal Democrat campaign.
