How To Fight Mosque Planning Applications 101- Introduction


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 !

  1. I worry that a mosque might try to open in my neighborhood here in South Carolina, (we do have a terrorist training camp in the state). I’ll do whatever it takes to stop one if that should happen. I’ll use this blog to fight too. Thank you so much for your post and input!

    1. You are very welcome. I`m not sure how the Planning Regulations work in the US. But I`m sure you can use some of our suggestions for compiling a case , and how to get organised.

      Kind regards
