Holloway Prison site: We need genuinely social housing

12 January, 2018

The Holloway Prison site

• ISLINGTON Green Party welcomes the news that the Holloway Prison site must include at least 50 per cent “genuinely” affordable homes, according to an Islington Council ruling.

Of course it should. What would be even better is if those homes are guaranteed to be genuinely social housing. We urge the council to stand firm on this and not allow a developer to ride roughshod over this ruling.

We also believe that any new development should include a women’s centre of some sort and urge the council to press for such a building.
