Planning Inspector Does The Unthinkable In Clacton

Regular readers of this blog may remember a fine victory by Clacton residents to see off a mosque application last May.

I now bring you bad news. The unelected , non local Planning Inspectorate have allowed an appeal by the Tendring Islamic Association. This means that the Tendring Council decision is over turned , and the mosque is now open.

Of course the locals  are furious , made more so by Tendring Councils apparent unwillingness to fight this decision in the High Court. Perhaps the Planning Departments coffers are empty.

Local residents have a short six week window to convince Tendring Council to fight the decision. We have been in touch with the “No Mosque In Pier Avenue” group , and they are pulling out all the stops. The local MP and MEP are being very helpful ,there is still enormous local opposition.

We will of course update the page with any news.
