The Community Plan for Holloway is an independent coalition of groups and residents working to ensure the needs of the Islington community are at the heart of the redevelopment of Holloway Prison


In a nutshell, what's wrong with the developer's plans?

  • Consultation hasn’t been meaningful or inclusive
  • Site design is too dense & overdeveloped
  • “Affordable” housing isn’t affordable
  • Insufficient environmental credentials
  • There are no community facilities
  • Women’s Building offer is vastly insufficient
  • We need more green space
  • Homes don’t meet daylight standards
  • No inclusion of co-housing
  • Different tenures aren’t integrated together
