The new Finsbury Centre / Timeline
Islington Council plans to redevelop the Finsbury Leisure Centre to provide much needed council homes, a new leisure centre, healthcare, childcare and energy facilities into one new exemplary civic development. Following a period of consultation in Spring 2013, the council adopted a planning brief that sets out the council's requirements for the site in Autumn 2014.
In Spring 2016, the council ran a design competition to find the best architect to help the council develop the site. Pollard Thomas Edwards was the winner of the competition. A copy of their initial design idea can be seen in the Competition page of this website
The council intends to work with Pollard Thomas Edwards to prepare a final design and planning application. The council and Pollard Thomas Edwards will provide opportunities for the local community to shape and influence the design before a planning application is submitted.
