Public consultation on the draft Finsbury Park Development SPD at the John Jones Arts Building

Public consultation on the draft Finsbury Park Development SPD at the John Jones Arts Building

The Finsbury Park Town Centre is an area of enormous untapped regeneration potential. The asset of a large open space in the shape of Finsbury Park itself, the excellent and improving public transport connections and the dynamism of the multicultural community who live and work there make Finsbury Park a unique area.  However, its urban fabric is severely constrained by roads, railways and poor quality public spaces. The area’s location on the boundaries of three London boroughs further complicates a coordinated approach to resolving its challenges.

Islington Council would like to hear your views on their draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the Finsbury Park Development Framework. A public consultation will take place between Monday 17 November 2014 and Monday 15 December 2014 and will provide an opportunity for you to comment on the draft document and proposed regeneration.
