Threat to Clerkenwell Green, Islington

Support us from £3/month

We deal with almost 1000 cases a year assisting communities, groups and individuals in protecting their local spaces and paths in all parts of England and Wales. Can you help us by joining as a member?

We have objected to Islington Council’s plans to mutilate Clerkenwell Green, by replacing the historic, underground, public conveniences with a café.

The open space has traditionally been used for public assemblies.  The toilets, designed by George Jennings, are of considerable historic interest.

The Open Spaces Society was founded 151 years ago initially to fight for London’s open spaces such as Clerkenwell Green This much-loved space should be protected for public enjoyment, not trashed for commercial gain.

The society is backing the Clerkenwell Green Preservation Society.  The application is due to be considered by LB Islington on 7 June.
