Clerkenwell Green

Clerkenwell Green improvement plans


Clerkenwell Green is one of London's oldest public spaces, dating back to the 12th Century, and is surrounded by some of Islington's most attractive and valuable historic buildings. It also has a rich social and political history.

The council has drawn up plans to improve the Green and consulted on these in Autumn 2017. The Council is currently analysing the responses received to the public consultation, and the outcome of the consultation will be reported in the coming months.

Public consultation

The information leaflet issued during the public consultation can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of the page. The leaflet includes a plan that shows the proposal for the area.

Public consultation report

In 2017, a public consultation took place on proposals to improve Clerkenwell Green by creating a more pleasant and greener local environment, which were supported by a majority of respondents. The report from this consultation can be found in the PDF below.

The Clerkenwell Green area people-friendly streets scheme will meet the traffic reduction elements of these proposals.

The scheme does not involve public realm and landscaping works and is therefore not a replacement for the one consulted on in 2017. The council is looking to secure funding for the landscaping changes proposed during the consultation.
