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.

It is rather sad to see that some people object to it by writing obscenities. Yet the entire
process is rather confusing and perhaps our blogger could investigate how to
object in a civilised fashion for those who would like to do that. I tried
and went to the website indicated. You need to enter only last 7 digit number
2199244 and 2206647, but when you do that the first case doesn't open and the
second can't be even found. Has anyone tried the planning website and succeeded?

One thing for sure, there is a very little time left to a appeal.....and I guess an electronic
appeal is the fastest if the website works.

Comment by clicking this link:
and then putting "2199244" or "2206647" in the Case Reference box and click "Search for Cases". That should bring up the actual case with a clickable link through to a page with more details. At the bottom of this detail page is a "Comment on this case" link which should take you through to a page where you can actually start making a comment.

This is disgusting. If "them people" desicrated our churches or places of worship there would be riots on the streets. Not for very long though, Central Road is very congested with traffic you know.
