Welcome to the page. I`ve set out to write a simple guide to fighting mosque planning applications. Too many go through unopposed , and unnoticed. Once the application is approved , there is very little you can do….unless you have 30k to fund a Judicial Review in the High Court.
The key to winning is prompt action , and getting bodies on the streets……and I don`t mean flash demos. You will be dealing with Planning Officers and Planning Committee`s , small flash demo`s do very little to help. It should not be your first option.
Small groups of local residents can successfully take on applications and win , and it doesn`t cost a fortune to do ! One local campaign I helped with cost just £20.00 in printing costs , and we won !
I`ll split the various stages into sections , use them as reference guide to help your campaign. Don`t be intimidated by the council websites , and letter writing – I`ll include some template letters you can use.
I`m not a planning lawyer , all my info comes from my own research. I spent many hours in the public gallery at Planning Hearings. Everything you read here is achievable with half a dozen volunteers , and a facebook page !
