More Obscenities Written On Bank Chambers

Another obscene phrase has been written on the door of the old Bank Chambers in Green Lane. The words (pixelated here) are written is what appears (to me) to be similar handwriting to the last lot of obscenities written on the door back in June and painted over (the brown patch above).

The building is owned by a Muslim group who have tried twice to get planning permission to turn the building into a Mosque and this has been rejected both times by Sutton Council because of the additional parking a traffic problems it would cause, after nearly 4000 signed a petition against it and 660 letters were received objecting to it (against 6 letters of support).

It is worth mentioning here that both these decisions are currently being appealed and people have until the 19th of this month (December) to make any additional comments, objections etc. to be taken in to account by the appeals board.

This of course is the right way to go about objecting to this planning application. Writing obscenities on the building is like this is just offensive hate crime and is totally unacceptable.

The Metropolitan Police will not tolerate any hate crime against anyone. If you have any information about this please call 101 or the Worcester Park Safer Neighbourhood team on 020 8649 3590 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
