Local campaigners lobby London Mayor

On Tuesday 23rd October Islington Homes for All campaigners held a demo outside the Mayor of London’s People’s Question Time taking place in Islington Assembly Hall to demand action around the Holloway prison site. The local activists repeated their calls for:

  • maximum council housing to be built on the Holloway prison site
  • Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to take action to make sure the land remains in public ownership.

The Ministry of Justice still has not announced a buyer for the site, despite the bidding process having ended a year ago. A preferred bidder was supposed to be in place in spring 2018.
