BARNSBURY ESTATE TRANSFORMATION (BEST)
YES Vote in Residents’ Ballot
Civica Election Services have let us know the result of the Barnsbury Estate Transformation Residents’ Ballot. We are pleased to say that the ballot has returned a YES majority.
79.2% of eligible residents voted with 72.9% of residents voting YES.
We are delighted that so many of you have engaged with us over the past year and a half and that so many of you voted in favour, giving us a clear indication that you want this project to continue, and we will keep working hard with you to achieve this together.
This is not the end of our consultation with residents.
With our development partner Mount Anvil, we are already planning our next conversations with you. We will continue to work with you on the detailed designs as part of our preparation for a planning application, which we intend to submit to Islington Council later this year.
New spaces: A 3D video walking through the transformed estate
We’ve asked our design team to create this 3D walk around the estate to show you what the spaces between the blocks will look like.
The new blocks in the video will give you an indication of height and location – but the look and design of the new blocks will be developed in consultation with you if there is a successful ballot.
