Dagenham Wins Again !


My word this has been a long battle !

Local residents have finally defeated the proposed Community Centre and Place of Worship at 539 Rainham Rd South in Dagenham , Essex.

We blogged on this case last year.



The mosque was initially granted a temporary one year permission in April 2102 , despite local opposition. When the year was up , the owners of the mosque applied to make it permanent . However local residents “upped their game” , and Planning Officers refused the application in August 2013.

However , the owners decided to appeal to the Planning Inspectorate. The decision announced today cited issues with road safety , parking and disturbance to local residents. It can be read here :-


A massive well done to the local Dagenham residents.  A lesson to us all , get organised and don`t give up !!
