Welcome to Peabody’s website for the future of Holloway Prison. This will be updated with the latest project news and consultation dates as the scheme progresses.
On March 8th, 2019, Peabody were delighted to have been announced as the owner of Holloway Prison having successfully acquired the site from the Ministry of Justice. London Square and the Mayor of London will be working in partnership over the next few years with Peabody to deliver this long-term project.
This is an opportunity to deliver a major housing-led scheme and great place to live that will have a significant benefit both locally and for London.
These are our commitments to the local community for the future development of Holloway Prison. Each commitment has been influenced by the Holloway Prison Site Supplementary Planning Document agreed by Islington Council in 2018. Peabody looks forward to working with the community and is fully committed to an inclusive and wide-reaching community engagement programme.
- 60% affordable housing provision.
Delivering a range of genuinely affordable homes including social rent levels.
- Provision of a Women’s Centre.
To be designed through resident-led engagement.
- Green and open space.
To provide new access routes and play spaces open to the public.
- Temporary homeless shelter.
Peabody will be working with local homeless charities to provide a suitable meanwhile use in the former Visitor’s Centre.
- Full consultation process.
This starts now. We will soon introduce our full programme of inclusive and wide-reaching engagement as the design work progresses throughout 2019 and early 2020.
