Islington Council unveils Highbury Roundhouse masterplan
The council has unveiled its masterplan for the controversial Highbury Roundhouse redevelopment.
Islington Council has released a planning brief for the site in Ronalds Road, Highbury, which includes a new community centre.
A consultation document, which can be downloaded on the council website, runs until Monday October 24, giving residents their say.
The current building, which opened in 1974, closed in August 2010 when a dangerous structure notice was placed on the main hall.
