Third Times A Charm.


Another chapter in the long running application/appeal/application saga at 539 Rainham Rd South concluded tonight.

Local residents objected , and defeated a second application for a Place of Worship and Community Centre on a busy Dagenham street (following an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate last year). The Development Control Board voted 5-4 to refuse permission , citing issues with parking and disturbance to the residential amenity.

The clear message to the owners is…….. this building and location is not suitable for a Place Of Worship.Three councillors came to the same conclusions.

Well done to the locals , but the smart money is that a resubmission (free if it`s within a year) will surface quickly.

Watch this space.
