Mosque Appeal Reminder

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (19th December) is the deadline for submitting comments to be considered by the appeal board regarding the Green lane Mosque proposal.

Readers will remember that the plans have been rejected by the council twice and that both rejections have been appealed. Both appeals are to be heard at the same time at an as yet unknown date and location. However comments, objections and endorsements can be submitted until the deadline which is tomorrow.

The easiest way to do this is electronically (and I am assuming this doesn't pose a barrier for people who read blogs). Here's how:

  • Click this link: http://www.pcs.planningportal.gov.uk/pcsportal/casesearch.asp
  • Put either "2199244" or "2206647" in the Case Reference box and click "Search for Cases". (That should bring up the actual case.)
  • This case page should contain a clickable link through to a page with more details. Click this link. (You should be on a page with more details of the case.)
  • At the bottom of this detail page is a "Comment on this case" link. Click this link which should take you through to a page where you can actually start making a comment.
  • Follow the instructions from there.

We know that a Mosque (or any building of public assembly) in this location which cause even more traffic and parking problems in the already congested area. Let's make sure the Council's decision is not overturned on appeal.
