We listen to Sotheby Mews protesters

06 October, 2017

Protesting councillor Caroline Russell confronts Cllr Diarmaid Ward

• WE know Sotheby Mews is much loved by many people (Housing chief confronts centre protest councillor, September 29).

We understand this, and we want to work with them so they play a central part in helping to shape services at the new Highbury Roundhouse.

The new Highbury Roundhouse will be a fantastic centre for the entire community. We’re confident Sotheby Mews service users will be properly accommodated and warmly welcomed.

This project will also see badly-needed council homes built in Highbury, together with some homes for private sale to help pay for the council’s contribution towards the new Roundhouse.

The views of older people using Sotheby Mews are really important to us. We will continue to meet with them to understand and listen to their concerns so that their views can guide our decisions.
