Workshop 11 Events
Welcome to our consultation website for the Barnsbury Estate Transformation.
Newlon Housing Trust and Mount Anvil are proposing to transform the Barnsbury Estate – creating high-quality homes, green spaces and a place for all of the community to enjoy.
On this website you can find more information about our proposals, view previous workshop and consultation materials and submit your feedback. We will also share details of our upcoming workshops and consultation events when these are announced.
Workshop 11 Events
We hope you’ll join us for Workshop 11, where you’ll hear about the design and appearance of the new buildings and more detail on Phase 1B.

We’d also love to hear your feedback on all the proposed outdoor space, both enclosed and open, as well as your thoughts on the plans for trees and landscaping across the Estate.
Our Workshop 11 sessions are taking place online – due to the latest restrictions – on the following dates:
- Tuesday 25 January, 6pm – 7:30pm via Zoom
- Wednesday 26 January, 6pm – 7:30pm via Zoom
- For leaseholders* – Tuesday 01 February, 6pm – 7:30pm via Zoom
*To ensure all residents have an equal opportunity to voice their concerns and raise any areas of discussion. We have decided to offer leaseholders separate sessions.
These sessions will cover the same content, so you’ll only need to attend one. In advance, we’ll send you an information pack in the post along with a feedback form. Please do let us know if you have any comments or questions before the workshop.
Please do register for the workshop you’d prefer to join by using the email or phone details on the Get In Touch page, or by clicking the links to these sessions above.
Our consultation so far
The transformation started in October 2019 when the owners of the Estate, Newlon Housing Trust, began consulting with residents. In February 2021, Newlon announced that Mount Anvil, an Islington based developer, had been selected as the developer partner to take the project forward.
In March 2021, 72.9% of eligible residents voted ‘YES’ in an independently run Residents’ Ballot to say they wanted the project to continue.
Since the ‘YES’ vote, we have continued to engage with residents in order to share the updated proposals, hear your thoughts and answer questions. You can find all of the information presented at the workshops here.
We also held a public consultation with the wider community, providing neighbours with the opportunity to view the proposed masterplan, meet the team and share feedback. To view the information from the public consultation, please click here.
About the Barnsbury Estate
The Barnsbury Estate is owned by Newlon Housing Trust, a not-for-profit social housing company, who took over management of the Estate from Islington Council in 1999.
The Estate is made up of two areas; Old Barnsbury is the red brick housing blocks between Charlotte Terrace and Barnsbury Road built in the 1930s and New Barnsbury is between Caledonian Road and Charlotte Terrace, which was built in the 1950s and 70s.
