Holloway prison in Islington, North London closed in 2016. The government is planning to sell the land to fund the building of new prisons outside London.

The closure of Holloway prison offers a once in a generation opportunity to create much needed facilities, homes and services for the people of Islington.

We are working with local people and community groups to put forward a positive vision for the site.
