The Women’s Building is a unique element of our development proposals and links to the site’s history and previous use.
As a minimum, this seeks to re-provide the support services to vulnerable women that were previously provided on-site when the Prison was operational. There is scope to provide a range of services and facilities and this continues to be explored.
We have been working closely with Islington Council and a range of local groups and interest groups to discuss the scope for the Women’s Building. This work is ongoing. We have fed into a draft Design Brief, which is being prepared by Islington Council to guide the design process. This will be consulted on by Islington Council shortly.
