The proposed development is far too large and overbearing in terms of mass and scale.

The proposed development does not promote or enhance local character and distinctiveness.

The proposed development has insufficient onsite parking to accommodate the 500 car users (based on a 1200 capacity and a 47% modal share). This will force worshipers to park in nearby residential streets (mainly Rigby Court and Ninehouse Lane)  affecting highway safety and traffic flow.

What to say (in your own words preferably)

The proposed development is too large in terms of mass and scale to operate that close to the small businesses in Holbrook Lane.

The proposed development has very little onsite parking (15 very tight spaces) for an estimated capacity of 200 , leaving worshippers no option but to park in on the access road or Holbrook Lane. This will create noise and disturbance to the residential amenity.

What To Say When You Comment.

The proposed development will cause additional noise and disturbance to the residential amenity.

The proposed development will impact highway safety through the generation of extra traffic, who will be using quiet residential streets.

The proposed development lacks any onsite parking. Although the applicants lease a nearby car park ,it is insufficient for the 500 worshippers that may attend this mosque.

The proposed development is far too large in terms of mass and scale , an does not match locally used building styles. It is an eyesore, not a landmark

The need for the proposed development is not proven. The applicants plan to attract worshippers from outside the area. It is not solely for local worshippers.

 

 

Application Withdrawn In Coventry

cov

Splendid news for local residents in Coventry , where some great objections (and a shoddy application) has lead to the withdrawal of plans for  “Change of use to Use Class D1 (Muslim Community and Education Centre) in a huge industrial unit in Durbar Rd.

Although the application was supported by the Deputy Leader of the Council (Abdul Khan) , it would have incurred the wrath of the Highways Agency (and the case officer) because only 30 onsite parking spaces were available for a possible 600 worshipers.

 

It just goes to show , its not the number of objections…..it`s what you say !

 

We have no doubt we`ll see this application again. Keep fighting !

 

 

The West Ham Megamosque Rides Again…Or Not !

486403815

The latest installment from the 16 year battle to prevent the opening a huge mosque in East London happened on 04/05/16 at the Royal Court of Justice.

An application  by the trustees of the proposed West Ham mega-mosque for the right to appeal against the Government’s rejection of their plans was refused.

The presiding judge went out of his way to highlight the London Borough of Newham`s extraordinary generosity in twice providing temporary planning permission for the mosque. He also cited the trustees refusal to come up with plans for a mixed-use development of the site despite promising that they would.
The trustees are now obliged by  written agreements to leave the site and demolish the current buildings.
But the smart money says that an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights will follow…..unless of course we vote Brexit.
