The Ministry of Justice closed Holloway Prison in 2016 and is in the process of selling the site to a developer. This is an important site with local historical significance and we need to make sure future development meets local priorities and planning policies.
This planning guidance sets out how the development of the Holloway Prison site should be approached by potential developers.

Consultative Draft Development Brief – A Women’s Building – Site of the Former Holloway Women’s Prison
The document seeks comment on and inputs into a draft development brief that has been primarily researched and produced by the Council. It’s objective is to ensure that a sufficiently large and well configured building, or part of a larger building, is designed to be able to deliver a broad range of important services and facilities for women in an innovative and creative manner. The brief is intended to help steer the Peabody led redevelopment plans that are currently being produced for the whole of the former Holloway Women’s Prison site, of which a Women’s Building will be an important part.
Please email any comments by 24 July 2020 including answers to the questions in the brief to: Linda.Aitken@islington.gov.uk.
