What safeguards prison site?

The Holloway prison site

• WHAT is to stop the housing association who have secured a loan off Mayor Sadiq Khan to build on the Holloway prison site from paying off their loan and then deciding to sell off a few places as times get tough in the future?

This has happened with some housing associations in Islington. Why did Islington council not get the loan direct to them so they could control matters locally? Is the council scared of taking responsibility?

I would like to hear what the housing executive member of Islington has to say. I trust that local politicians won’t be buying places at pre-build prices.
