Community Plan for Holloway appears on BBC News

On Friday, 5 January, Andy Bain of Community Plan for Holloway appeared on BBC London News calling for genuinely affordable housing to be built on the Holloway prison site to meet the needs of young people in Islington. The interview was part of a report about the adoption of a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the site by Islington Council’s Planning and Development Committee on 4 January.

Maureen Mansfield, of the grassroots campaign Reclaim Holloway, also appeared arguing that the development should include a women’s building, providing support services to the most vulnerable women in the borough, regardless of whether they had been involved in the criminal justice system.

A version of the report appeared on the BBC News website.CP4H
