London venue The Garage could be under threat from redevelopment works to Highbury & Islington station

London venue The Garage could be demolished in plans to build a new ticket hall for Highbury and Islington station.

The Islington Gazette reports that the venue’s management are calling on the community to protect it from developers by lobbying for it to become an asset of community value. That follows council planning documents seen by the local paper which suggest it could be forced to make way for a redevelopment of the old Highbury station.

Programmer Matthew Cook is quoted as saying: “We believe we’re a site of local importance bringing a vibrant musical culture to Islington. With so many of London’s beloved music venues under threat from developers, we want to ensure the future of the Garage by strengthening ties with our local community.”

Meanwhile, a TFL spokesperson comments: “We are in early discussions about the possibility of upgrading Highbury and Islington Tube station and will engage with businesses and stakeholders as any plans are developed.”
