Predictably enough as there was nothing else on the table, Islington Council condemned the Sobell Centre at their last executive meeting, voting to demolish it and build a brand new centre on the site. Furious campaigners and local residents are now girding themselves for a drawn out programme of resistance to further gauge local opinion and oppose planning permission. With the Council brandishing a survey completed by under 1500 people as proof of support for their plans and their opposition claiming at least 4000 against it, the battle could be a long and drawn out one.
So Long Sobell?
