Proposed redevelopment of site of Holloway Prison

The  speaker at our July Cycle Islington meeting was Will McMahon  of the CCJS (the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies) who talked about the Holloway Prison site redevelopment project.  The CCJS  is seeking the views of local residents and anyone who cycles, works, studies or shops in the area.  Camden Road/Parkhurst Road junction sits right by the prison site and any redevelopment might be an opportunity to re-engineer that space so it’s less of a motorway and  more of an inviting space for everyone.  There is a survey on potential developments here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/plan4holloway

On  Saturday, 30 September from 1pm-4pm at St George’s Church on Crayford Road, N7, the findings from the survey will be discussed  with residents for the first time.  For more details keep an eye on the CCJS site : https://plan4holloway.org/.  Cycle Islington, along with other community groups,  will be there so come along, find out more about the plans, and say hello.
