Great news from Halesowen near Dudley.
Local residents objected in great number to oppose an extension and the addition of minarets and a dome to the Baitul Ghafoor Mosque. The residents were also supported by local councilors. Councillor Karen Shakespeare said: “I am pleased this planning application has been refused and I know local residents will be pleased too.The minarets would have had a strong visual impact and would have affected the skyline.”
Having seem the plans , our team agree…it`s an eyesore.
Dr Muhammad Ashraf, from the mosque, has vowed to appeal the decision to block the building of the minarets.
More and more mosque applications and extensions are being refused. Our message to you is to get organised , and use the council planning process to your advantage. It`s your community , and your choice.Silence implies assent !!
