Islington Council

Islington Council is the local general governing body for the London Borough of Islington.

A largely residential zone, Islington is famous less for bustling commerce and more for its cultural and artistic roots. The borough’s council reflects this, overseeing and regulating numerous events together with the area’s museums and heritage areas. Rubbish collection, libraries, taxation and state-owned housing are also overseen.

Constantly aiming to give the area’s rich civic history and culture the celebration it deserves, Islington Council have nevertheless been praised for a reasonably efficient administration of public services over the years.
